Punjab govt gives deadline to Imran to disclose name who offered Rs10 bln

LAHORE: Punjab government spokesperson Malik Ahmad Khan has challenged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan to disclose the name of the person who offered him Rs 10 billion from the government.

Addressing a press conference at the office of Directorate General Public Relations (DGPR) here on Friday, he set a three-day deadline for the PTI chairman to disclose the name; otherwise, he said the government would challenge him in the court under the defamation law.

The spokesperson defied differential decision of the court in Panama leaks case by quoting the differential note by the judges in Zulfikar Ali Bhutto case.

Malik Ahmad criticised PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zaradri's speech in Malakand and declared that his claim of being founder of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project was baseless and completely against the facts.

He accused former president of making bogus claims in pursuance of political relevance and advised him not to damage country's integrity. (APP)
