Ahsan Iqbal accuses Imran of spending charitable donations on political activities

ISLAMABAD (INP): Federal Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal lashed out Sunday at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan for seducing people by his words. However, he added that the former cricketer had mastered the art of disposing of people after using them akin to tissue paper.
Addressing a news conference in Narowal on Sunday, the federal planning minister listed the people who Imran Khan has seduced.
Iqbal went on to quip that Imran perhaps used the same tactics with women, secondly with the rich. He said that if someone was carrying $100 in their pocket, Imran’s hand was invariably in their pocket.
“It has now been proven that Imran [Ahmed Khan] Niazi, who used to collect donations in the name of Shaukat Khanum Hospital, spent the money on his party’s political activities and had toyed with their members,” the federal minister claimed.
“Imran Khan did not dare to claim defamation against the story published by the Financial Times, which was known as the bible of economics and finance,” he said.
“However, when a British newspaper published a story against Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister took the publication to court (and won), so why does Imran Niazi have no courage to take the Financial Times to court?” he asked.
Thirdly, Imran seduced the establishment. He used to carry a laptop with Asad Umar and told the establishment that there was no one more honest and pure than them, he added.
Continuing the list, he said the fourth victim was the judiciary, lured by stories like the Panama Papers case, after which the Supreme Court judge told Imran Niazi to leave the streets and come to the courtroom.
He said the decision taken in the Panama case would be considered one of the most controversial decisions in the history of Pakistan because the downfall of Pakistan started with the decision of the Panama case in 2017.
