Toshakhana scams: PML-N Minister asks govt to abolish Toshakhana facility

ISLAMABAD: As the Toshakhana controversy has become talk of the town, Defense Minister Khawaja Asif said that it was the right time to abolish the Toshakhana facility permanently.

Talking to journalists, Khawaja Asif endorsed the offer of former prime minister Imran Khan to approach the court over his alleged defamation and Toshakhana scams.

He said, “It is better to approach court rather spreading hate on social media. By this, it will be verified and endorsed by courts,” he said.

“Imran Khan says he will go to the UAE and UK to lodge the Toshakhana case, he is free to go to moon if he wants to,” quipped Asif.

Defence Minister further said that the committee had forwarded its recommendations to close the facility of Toshakhana forever so that no ruler misuses it.

Khawaja went on to say that the items gifted by foreign dignitaries are priceless and should not be sold.

Asked about Imran’s anti-establishment narrative, Asif dismissed it.

“Imran Khan does not have any anti-establishment narrative and he wants the military establishment to be on his side,” he said.

He pointed out, “It was Imran Khan who offered indefinite extension to the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Qamar Javed Bajwa,” Asif added.

He said, “In his [Imran Khan’s] mind army has only one role that somehow it favors him and be on his side.”

Responding to a question regarding the long march, he said, “The long march has lost relevance, and it is no more a big deal for the government like it was 15 to 20 days earlier.
