  1. Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah. ? Geo News FILE LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Saturday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has never been able to substantiate allegations he levelled against others. Speaking to media here, the provincial minister said that they level false allegations and run away, adding that Imran accused Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif of involvement in corruption worth Rs27 billion through 'frontman', but the PTI chief could not substantiate his allegations. "Imran put all past budgets into Shehbaz's account," Rana said, adding that "whoever is telling all this to him is either trying to befool the PTI chairman or Imran himself is becoming a fool." Imran Khan chastises bureaucracy for allegedly serving only Sharif's agenda Khan told journalists, instead of serving the country bureaucrats are serving the Sharif family. In response to Imran's allegations of allotment of plots worth millions to Ahad Cheema by Shehbaz Sharif, the minister challenged the PTI chief to prove allotment of just one plot, and demanded him to apologise to the Punjab CM and the nation, in case of failure to substantiate his allegations. He said that there is no example of silly things spoken against civil servants today. "Civil servants cannot issue statements legally and constitutionally. Career officers have worked honestly throughout their lives." Rana further accused Imran of misleading the nation, adding, "Cheema has presented complete record of purchase of 32 kanal land." Regretting the use of such language against civil servants, he said that he apologises to them on behalf of the Punjab government, Muslim League-Nawaz and other political parties. Commenting on Multan Metro Bus project, the minister said the Punjab government conducted thorough investigations pertaining to the project and a case was formally lodged against individuals involved in a fraud.
  2. LONDON: In her latest interview to a British publication, the former 'national bhabi' has claimed Imran Khan is 'quite exhausted' and that she doesn't see her former husband becoming the leader he has always dreamed of becoming. Reham Khan, in her latest interview published by the British daily TheTimes, claims she fled Pakistan after receiving threats of being "blown up." Individuals seeking to protect Imran Khan?s political career, "told us . . . that anyone who talks about Imran now is going to be blown up,? she said in her interview. Reham reiterated her claim that the relationship between Imran Khan and his now third-wife Bushra Watoo began while he was still married to her. ?He was very keen to get it done on this date, he?s very . . . number conscious,? Ms Khan told TheTimes. Recalling the time when he proposed to her, ?he sent me a message saying I want to know your parents? names for my spiritual adviser?. Interestingly, she added, ?when we had a spat he said the spiritual adviser had mixed up the names?. TheTimes also noted how Imran Khan's latest marriage is seen as a shift from the progressive broadminded playboy image to a very conservative one. Becoming PM an end in itself Reham Khan claimed that while she was married to the PTI chairman he was ?very clear? that for him becoming prime minister was an end in itself. ?He?s a sportsman, he has to bring in the trophy,? she said. Reham Khan also told TheTimes that she feels Imran Khan no longer has a chance of becoming the leader. ?He?s no spring chicken. It can be tiring. From the inside, I can tell you he?s quite exhausted,? she said, adding, ?He?s lost that trust. There?s been no performance. You can?t continue to play in a cricket team unless you bring in the wickets.? Zulfi demands apology from Reham for ?attacking?

In his press conference, which he announced on Twitter a day earlier, to expose the nexus between the protesting bureaucrats and the Sharif family who Khan says were ?petrified? of what Ahad Cheema may say to save himself. TWEET Talking about the protests and banners on the streets Imran Khan likened Ahad Cheema to Nelson Mandela. He added the Cheema was Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif?s front-man and was looking after projects worth billions of rupees. There are corruption cases worth Rs14 billion on Cheema in just one project, Imran told journalists at his Bani Gala residence. He claimed that former DG NAB Qamar Zaman Chaudhry was used to save the Sharif family in the Hudaybia Paper Mills case. They made Saeed Ahmed the president of the State Bank of Pakistan. Imran added that the apex court has stated the all institutions are being controlled. ?These people who are sitting on top, all their dirty work is done by the bureaucrats at the bottom,? Imran said. Khan named multiple bureaucrats identifying them to be working for the Sharif family. He added, ?Bureaucrats are supposed to work for the country, not for the Sharif family.? Hitting at Shehbaz Sharif?s fashion choices, Khan said the Punjab chief minister even wore hats like those worn by Dons. ?In nine years Shehbaz Sharif spent Rs9 trillion,? Imran told journalists claiming all the money was spent through Sharif family?s children and the bureaucrats. He claimed that the SECP was involved in a cover-up when China was investigating its own company for raking in irregular profits.
  4. Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Asif addressing the media in Sialkot on February 23, 2018. Photo: Geo News SIALKOT: PML-N leader Khawaja Asif on Friday lashed out at Imran Khan, stating that the PTI chief is making futile efforts to be elected as Pakistan's next prime minister. "Imran married his spiritual guide in an attempt to be elected as the premier," Asif told the media in Sialkot. "But only the person who will get [the most] votes will become the next prime minister." Jibing at political rival and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, Asif said that the Lodhran by-poll for NA-154 constituency brought forward the reality of PPP's political strength. "PPP was only able to secure 3,000 votes in the Lodhran by-poll," he said. He also said Zardari was the country's president for five years yet he was unable to trace his wife, Benazir Bhutto's murderers. "He [Zardari] was either unable to trace them or did not want to trace them," Asif said.
  5. Photo: File Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan has claimed of exposing ?the nexus of corruption? between Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Punjab government bureaucrats. In a tweet posted recently, Imran has stated he will hold a news conference today to talk about the fear among Punjab government bureaucrats regarding Lahore Development Authority Ahad Cheema?s arrest. According to the PTI chief, the Punjab government bureaucrats were petrified over Cheema?s arrest as they feared he would disclose all the mega scams that have taken place in Punjab in order to save himself. Imran also called Cheema the front man of Shehbaz, implying that the former DG LDA and Punjab government bureaucrats were together in embezzling funds from the national exchequer on the pretext of schemes. Cheema was arrested on February 21 under NAB ordinance?s schedule two as he did not appear before it when summoned on January 16. Friction between Punjab govt, NAB over Ahad Cheema's arrest Civil officers adopt resolution against Cheema's arrest It said that the Cheema, by misuse of authority and with criminal intent, awarded a contract of the Ashiana-e-Iqbal project of approximately Rs14 billion to Lahore Casa Developers ? a joint-venture which was ineligible for the contract. The former DG LDA has also been accused of receiving illegal gratification in the form of a 32-kanal land valuing Rs30.09 million approximately from the owners of Paragon City (Pvt) Ltd.
  6. 'PML-N made Nawaz party president when he was supposed to answer for money he has invested abroad,' Imran said-Photo: File LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan said on Thursday that Nawaz Sharif had already been disqualified by the Supreme Court, hence it is no surprise he had to quit as president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). "Nawaz had to go," said Imran while addressing the media, adding that whether the PML-N crumbles or not is not the real issue. Imran further mocked Nawaz by saying that he is complaining and crying after being removed from his post. ?PML-N made Nawaz party president when he was supposed to answer for money he has invested abroad,? the PTI chairman said, alleging that Nawaz invested Rs300 billion in 15 companies abroad. Instead of answering for his investments abroad, Nawaz produced a letter from the Qatari prince, Imran lamented. Nawaz terms recent Supreme Court decisions person-specific Addressing the media, former PM said Wednesday's Supreme Court decision disqualifying him as PML-N president was not unexpected Slamming other PML-N leaders and aides of Nawaz, the PTI chief said all of them know Nawaz?s money is actually looted money. The incumbent prime minister also helped former finance minister Ishaq Dar escape, Imran claimed. Vowing to rid the country of ?corrupt elements?, Imran reiterated the country is being controlled by a mafia which appoints similarly corrupt people to serve them. Imran?s comments come in response to the Supreme Court decision, which on Wednesday struck down a specific clause of the Elections Act 2017. As a result, Nawaz was de-notified as the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz president.
  7. PTI Chairman Imran Khan addressing the event in Lahore today. Photo: Geo News LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Thursday that what should have been revealed in 48 hours has still not been made public. He was referring to the report of the committee investigating the amendment in the oath of elected candidates affirming the Finality of Prophethood. Addressing an event on the subject, Imran said claimed that the oath was intentionally changed by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to please an international lobby. "We will not forget, the public is waiting for the report," he said. Government submits in IHC sealed report on changes in Finality of Prophethood oath Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui had warned to summon PM, issue contempt notices to ministers and secretaries in case of failure to submit Raja Zafarul Haq committee report today The PTI chief claimed that Nawaz and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi hold secret meetings, adding that Nawaz wants to protect himself from the army. "The same government released the Dawn Leaks report," he said, adding that, "What kind of a prime minister does these things". Imran regretted that the country is going backwards because of the corrupt system. A committee, headed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Chairman Senator Raja Zafarul Haq, was formed last year to reveal those responsible for the changes in the oath when the Elections Act 2017 was passed. The changes, termed a clerical error, were later reversed by the government through another amendment. Besides Haq, it included Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and Climate Change Minister Mushahidullah Khan. The committee's report has not been made public or acted upon officially yet. However, it was recently submitted to the Islamabad High Court which is hearing a petition against the change in the oath.

Addressing the media after a meeting of the PTI's parliamentary party, Imran said he will show Nawaz Sharif why he was deposed, referring to the oft-repeated question of the former prime minister. The PTI chief said he will announce the date of the rally after touring the country for the party's membership drive and consulting with party leaders. "They [Nawaz] are now heading for a clash of institutions on the basis of having a people?s mandate. I will show them that the public stands with justice, not them," said Imran. Earlier, Imran criticised the former prime minister for damaging the country's institutions. He claimed that Nawaz has destroyed organisations like the Federal Board of Revenue and National Accountability Bureau in a bid to protect his corruption. The PTI chief also condemned the ruling party members for helping hide their leader's corrupt wealth instead of exposing it in the national interest.

Imran Khan, 66, tied the knot with Bushra Riaz Wattoo in a private ceremony in Lahore on Sunday. The PTI confirmed party chairman?s third marriage with Bushra, known to be his spiritual guide. Imran first tied the knot with Jemima Khan on May 16, 1995 that ended in divorce after nine years on June 22, 2004. His second marriage with Reham Khan, then a TV anchor, lasted for barely 10 months. Reham alleged that the relationship between the newlyweds had begun before her ten-month marriage ended in divorce in 2015, leading British daily The Times reported. ?Imran Khan was in contact with Bushra three years ago when I was his wife and he is not the truthful man,? Reham, 44, told The Times. ?I knew they married on 1 January, and he revealed it later, this is exactly what he did after marrying me and then announcing after two months.? In a recent interview Reham claimed that she married Imran in a secret ceremony on October 31, 2014. But the PTI chairperson hid the news for months, despite reports in the media. "The reports of my marriage are greatly exaggerated!" Imran tweeted on Dec 31, 2014. He, however, made his marriage with Reham public in January 2015. Photographs of Imran's nikah with Bushra Wattoo released by the PTI on Sunday showed close relatives of the bride and two of Imran?s affiliates at the event in Lahore. PTI confirms Imran Khan's marriage with Bushra Bibi The party issues pictures of Imran Khan's nikah with Bushra Bibi Senior correspondent with The News Umar Cheema broke the story of Imran?s third marriage in January this year, but the PTI denied the report at the time. However, the party had later confirmed that Imran proposed marriage to a woman named Bushra Bibi. The Times further quoted Reham as saying: ?Khan is my ex but he is disrespecting Pakistan indulging in such affairs even when he was married with me. This move is the fragmentation of PTI.? PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhary denied her allegations and claimed that she had frequently fabricated stories. The news of the marriage drew a mixed response with some criticising the PTI chairman for ?lying? about it, and others congratulating him. ?Don?t humiliate women by divorcing them?: Maulana Haideri?s advice to Imran Khan 'There?s no harm in marrying. But do not humiliate women by divorcing them', says the JUI-F leader Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Talal Chaudhry congratulated the PTI chairman for his third marriage, but pointed out that he should not have lied by rejecting The News report, which said that he had tied the knot on January 1. "Marriage is a Sunnat-e-Nabwi. What was the point of lying about it? One should know what they are supposed to do at their age," he said on Sunday. Taking a jibe at the PTI leader, Chaudhry said that where Nawaz Sharif was destined to become four times prime minister, Imran?s fate was to get married for the third time. "I hope this time his marriage remains successful," he added. ?There?s no harm in marrying . . . [but] if he can?t hold on to his wives, how can he hold the country together?? said Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri, the Senate deputy chairman.

Photo: Geo News PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Tuesday that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is using Parliament to save himself and attack the judiciary. The PTI chief was speaking to the media during a visit to Peshawar. "In 1997, PML-N (Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz) attacked judges with sticks and bought judges on the Quetta bench," said Imran, adding that "this is how a mafia works". Imran was referring to Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's statement on Monday, wherein he had regretted that elected representatives are termed "thieves, robbers and Godfather" in the courts. Abbasi, speaking in Parliament, had also called for a debate on the matter so a clash of institutions can be avoided. Judges' conduct to be discussed in both houses of parliament: PM It appears the party and its leadership is being intentionally targeted, PM Abbasi told party members Imran claimed that the accountability court's verdict against Nawaz, who is facing three corruption references following his disqualification, will be out soon. "They are scared [of the upcoming verdict]," said Imran, adding that Nawaz had ample opportunity to defend himself during the trial. "The Supreme Court has treated Nawaz like no other citizen. His contemptuous remarks are also being ignored," he added. 'Never employed KP helicopters for personal use' NAB commences probe into Imran's use of KP government helicopters A JIT has been formed to investigate the matter, according to sources Answering a question, Imran claimed that he never, even for a minute, used the KP government's helicopter for personal work. "I challenge anyone to prove otherwise," he added. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) commenced on Tuesday an inquiry into the reported use of the provincial government's helicopters by the PTI chief. "I came here today in a PTI helicopter," he explained further. Moreover, the PTI chief demanded that NAB should inquire into the use of Punjab government's resources on Nawaz?s family. Wanted ex-cop Abid 'Boxer' brought back to Pakistan: sources Sources said authorities transported the former police inspector from Dubai to Karachi Talking about the reports of wanted former police inspector Abid Boxer's return to the country, Imran said, "If Abid Boxer remains alive he?ll reveal how many people he killed on Shehbaz Sharif's orders". Abid Boxer, wanted for several extrajudicial murders, was nabbed in Dubai earlier this month and brought back to Pakistan today, according to sources.

But do not humiliate women by divorcing them,? said Maulana Haideri, after the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf confirmed their leader?s marriage to ?spiritual adviser? Bushra Bibi. PTI confirms Imran Khan's marriage with Bushra Bibi The party issues pictures of Imran Khan's nikah with Bushra Bibi Asked about the PTI chief?s chances of becoming the prime minister of Pakistan, Maulana Haideri said it did not seem likely. ?If [Imran Khan] can?t [hold on] to his wives, how can he hold the country together?? said the JUI-F leader, eluding to Khan?s two failed marriages ? to Jemima Goldsmith and Reham Khan ? in the past.
  13. KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has confirmed party chairman Imran Khan?s third marriage with Bushra Maneka. The party issued pictures of Imran's nikah with Bushra Maneka, in which close relatives of Bushra Bibi are seen. Imran?s political secretary Awn Chaudhry is also witnessed in the images.

  14. KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Sunday objected to Supreme Court's verdict in Panama Papers leaks case, which disqualified Nawaz Sharif on the basis of Iqama. In an interview with a private news channel, Khan said the court gave a "weak verdict" on the basis of Iqama (employment contract), instead of Panama Papers. On July 28, 2017, Nawaz Sharif had stepped down as the prime minister of Pakistan after being disqualified from holding public office by the Supreme Court in a landmark decision in the Panama Papers case. Announcing its verdict, the five-member bench unanimously disqualified Nawaz Sharif for failing to disclose his "un-withdrawn receivables" constituting assets from UAE-based Capital FZE in his nominations papers for the 2013 General Election, stating that this meant he was not 'honest' and 'truthful', as per the Constitution. Nawaz asks supporters to take 'revenge' in next elections Former PM was addressing PML-N rally in Sheikhupura Asked why he not criticised the decision if it was wrong, the PTI chief said how they could attack the judiciary, while it was already under attack from the former premier. Khan further said hat Nawaz made speeches against the judiciary following the verdict, but the court did not take action. "He (Nawaz) should have been imprisoned for contempt of court, but he drew more courage seeing the judiciary not taking any action." Interestingly, Nawaz since his disqualification has adopted the stance that why he was disqualified on the basis of Iqama, and not Panama Papers. In the past, Imran has not only fully supported Nawaz's ouster on the basis of Iqama, but mocked the former premier's narrative on his disqualification. The PTI chief also did not deny the fact that the former premier's narrative is being liked by commoners. He, however, termed it a temporary choice.
  15. Imran Khan (final) ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan said the Sharif family are not ready to be held accountable for Rs300 billion irregularities. Speaking in the party's central executive meeting, he said that the Sharifs start speaking on the construction of roads and bridges whenever they are asked about the amount. Imran said that his party will bring forward corruption cases of federal and Punjab government, adding that the PTI under its leader Shafqat Mehmood has formed an anti-corruption committee. "We have a one-on-one contest against PML-N. PPP cease to remain an entity in Punjab," he said. "We will convey PTI's manifesto to the masses." The party chairperson said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has nothing to offer than personal attacks. He claimed that he had never once benefited from the KP government in last five years, while Sharifs have looted nation. "Sharif family's corruption was pointed out by a Chinese institution." He announced that the PTI's parliamentary board will soon start its work, and the party will learn lesson from its defeat in the Lodhran election.
  16. LAHORE: The hearing on defamation case against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan ? filed by Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif ? has been adjourned for two weeks. The court has adjourned the Rs10 billion defamation suit hearing as additional sessions judge Shabana Risalat is on leave. The duty judge has issued another notice to Imran?s counsels. During a hearing on February 2, the sessions court gave PTI chief's counsel Babar Awan the last chance to appear in court, as the latter had been a constant no-show since the defamation suit was filed in July 2017. Shehbaz's counsel had told the court that Awan was using delaying tactics by not appearing in court and challenging its jurisdiction. The court then gave Awan a last chance to appear and present his arguments. The hearing was adjourned until February 17. In November 2017, the Punjab chief minister had filed a petition seeking a swift verdict in the case. Shehbaz had stated in the petition that Imran was employing delay tactics and pleaded that the verdict be given in the next 90 days. Imran, in a public gathering last year, had claimed that Shehbaz had offered to pay him Rs10 billion to remain hush on the Panama Papers case against the Sharif family. The petition, filed in the court of Lahore additional sessions judge Azfar Sultan under sections 4 (defamation actionable) and 9 (remedies) of Defamation Ordinance, 2002, states that ?the facts and circumstances giving rise to the filing of the instant suit are that since the last week of April 2017, the defendant [Imran Khan] started uttering, spreading and resorting to the publication, communication and circulation of maliciously false, baseless and unfounded oral statements and representations against the plaintiff [Shehbaz].? Moreover, it states that Imran claimed Shehbaz ?offered to pay a sum of Rs10,000,000,000 to the defendant in exchange for his withdrawing/backing-off from, or remaining silent on the issue of the Panama Papers case?. Imran?s counsel remains no-show in defamation case hearing Punjab CM had filed Rs10 billion defamation suit against Imran Khan's allegation of Panama case bribe On April 25, 2017, Imran, during a gathering at Shaukat Khanum Hospital, Lahore, alleged that he had been made an offer regarding the Panama case. "Just imagine how much money he offered me to be silent ? Rs10 billion! If he can offer me this much money, just imagine how much he could offer others. That is why if we don't maintain public pressure on this issue, then after two months it will be dragged to the next year," Imran had claimed. In an interview televised following the statement, Imran refused to reveal the name of the person who made the offer but did state that this person was close to the Punjab chief minister. In a press conference later in the day, the PTI chairperson directly accused Shehbaz of using the law to his benefit. Imran said he was waiting for Shehbaz to take him to court as he would expose all the wrongdoings he [Shehbaz] has committed.

Imran on the occasion said that PTI is a truly democratic political party and continuous efforts are being made to turn the party into an institution-Photo:File ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in a meeting on Friday approved a committee to review the party constitution in detail and suggest amendments to it.

Imran on the occasion also said that PTI is a truly democratic political party and continuous efforts are being made to turn the party into an institution. A party?s organisation and makeup are dependent on its constitutional structure, he said. ?We will not ignore the internal structure of the party as we progress in politics,? he said. Imran vowed to give a better Pakistan along with a better constitution to future generations.
  18. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan said it was funny how terrorism cases were filed against him though his protest in August 2014 was only part of a political struggle. Imran said this while speaking to the media outside the anti-terrorism court Thursday, where he appeared in case related to injuries caused to the then SSP, Asmatullah Junejo, during an attack in the Red Zone.ATC Judge Shahrukh Arjumand summoned Imran today during a hearing on January 31. During hearing in the case, Imran filed a request for acquittal. A request for Imran?s exemption from court appearance was also filed.
