Islamabad, August 1 (SO News/Agency) Chief of Staff of PTI Chairman Imran Khan Shahbaz Gul has accused former Prime Minister of Pakistan Shahid Khaqan Abbasi of accepting bribe from an Indian company. When he was the Minister of Petroleum in the cabinet of Muslim League (N) supremo Nawaz Sharif.
According to The News, Gill alleged that Abbasi received a bribe of 14 million Pakistani rupees from the Indian firm as consultancy fee and the amount was transferred to his bank account in three transactions on December 1, 2016 and January 2, 2017.
Gill said that he and Abbasi have accounts in the same bank and they demand that the details of both accounts be made public. He claimed that Shahid Abbasi as Prime Minister tried to give an impression of being an honest person but this is far from the truth.
Meanwhile, responding to Gul’s allegations, Abbasi has challenged the PTI leader to take the matter to court if he has evidence. In a statement from Islamabad, the former prime minister said that the PTI and its ‘garbage brigade’ had ruled the country for four years and established two cases against them.
Abbasi urged his political rival to file another case against him and file a petition in court to produce ‘so-called evidence’.
During his press conference, Gul further told reporters that PTI chief Imran Khan was briefed about the relief efforts to help flood victims in Punjab and progress on social security and poverty alleviation programmes. .
He said that the PTI president will meet the party MPs of six divisions of Punjab separately to discuss the party affairs and strategy for the upcoming general elections.
