PTI benefits from delay in elections
According to the report, Imran Khan said that the more the government delays the elections, the more it will be beneficial for our Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party. We don’t even need to campaign because of the current situation in the country.
He said that it was the need of the hour that a government with a clear majority should come to power in Pakistan so that it could take concrete decisions. Criticizing the government of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Imran Khan said that the new government will have to take tough decisions to change the direction and condition of the country.
He said that the government needs to emphasize on taking appropriate steps to increase investment in Pakistan.
Imran Khan on target for Toshakhana
These days former Prime Minister Imran Khan is in controversies regarding the Toshakhana case. Criminal proceedings have been initiated against him for concealing information about expensive gifts from Toshakhana. The Election Commission has found him guilty of giving wrong information in the election papers.
The Toshakhana is a section of the cabinet where valuable gifts given by governments, heads of state and foreign guests of other countries are kept. According to the rules, it is necessary to keep the gifts received from the heads of other countries or dignitaries in the Toshakhana.
Imran Khan became the Prime Minister of Pakistan in 2018. He had received expensive gifts from the rulers of Arab countries during his visits. He had also received valuable gifts from heads of states of many European countries, which were deposited by Imran in Toshakhana. But Imran Khan later bought them from Toshakhana at cheap prices and sold them at a huge profit. His government had given legal permission to this whole process.
