The Prime Minister said the PTI is the pioneer of political fund-raising campaign and has all the records of fund donations, including the names of 40,000 people.
He regretted that how the funds collected from the oversees Pakistanis, whose remittances are playing a major role in running the country, could be described as foreign funding.
About the gathering of the opposition parties' alliance outside the Election Commission of Pakistan, Imran Khan said the nation has rejected their nefarious designs and their movement is just a drama to get an NRO through blackmailing tactics.

He said the government will give special packages to the tribal districts to ensure developments in these areas.
