  1. ISLAMABAD: Opposition leader in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah said on Tuesday that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf both engage in defamatory politics. Shah while addressing media said that Imran?s manifesto is to slander politicians, while the PML-N has resorted to abusive language in politics. The Opposition leader strongly reacted to the statements passed by former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. He said that if Nisar speaks out against Nawaz then he is equally bad for associating with him for so long. Shah claimed that Nisar wants that Nawaz himself expels his old aide from the party. ?I told Nawaz to tread with caution, he has a snake growing up in his own sleeve,? said Shah. Disgruntled senior leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan in an interview on Monday said that PML-N has suppressed the right to have a different opinion. Discussing the party's incumbent leadership, the veteran politician said that he would not become part of any decision that makes Maryam Nawaz the party's leader. Speaking about his relationship with Imran Khan, Nisar said that some people point fingers at his friendship with the PTI chairperson when they are unable to find anything against him.

I fear that reptiles surround him.? The announcement was made after TV host and former Muttahida Qaumi Movement member Amir Liaquat was formally announced as a member of the PTI by Imran Khan at a press conference in Karachi. Responding to the press conference, Salman had hurled abuse at Liaquat and said that is his "democratic right to warn" Imran Khan against Liaquat. Along with Salman, many other PTI supporters withdrew their support after the news. Adil Ansari, part of PTI?s social media team, also announced that he no longer would be a part of the political party.

Lashing out at his political rivals PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, Imran alleged that both politicians are responsible for the countries problems. "Nawaz and Zardari both are corrupt," he told attendees of the rally. "They [political leaders] engage in corruption and then burden the public with debt and taxes." "The public is being pushed into poverty as the corrupt leaders get richer," Imran exclaimed. He further said that corrupt practices of the country's leaders have destroyed public institutions. The PTI chief, in his address, promised to strengthen the country's institutions by eliminating corruption, if his party is elected in the general elections. "The nation will transform when the same money that is looted from the public will be spent on them," Imran said, adding that the most important part of his party's agenda was to empower the hardworking people of the country. Discussing the law enforcement authorities and security conditions across Pakistan, Imran alleged that the police force in Sindh and Punjab had been politicised. The PTI chief also claimed that there were no extrajudicial killings cases against the police force in KP ? where the PTI has ruled for five years after it was elected in the 2013-general elections.

  5. PTI's Fawad Chaudhry in his letter to the Senate and NA chairman, respectively, stated that Dar and Kulsoom?s failure to take oath of office despite being elected is akin to robbing masses of their democratic rights Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on Friday submitted objections in the Parliament on the election of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders Ishaq Dar and Kulsoom Nawaz to the Senate and National Assembly, respectively. PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhry in his letter to the Senate and NA chairman, respectively, stated that Dar and Kulsoom?s failure to take oath of office despite being elected is akin to robbing masses of their democratic rights. Dar was awarded Senate ticket despite facing corruption cases and having been declared absconder by a court, which is a joke with democracy, the letter states. Dar should either be asked to immediately take oath or be forced to step down, the party said. Raising objections over election of former premier Nawaz Sharif?s ailing wife Kulsoom, the letter says that she was awarded a ticket despite being seriously ill and incapable of carrying out political activities. ?Kulsoom Nawaz should be asked to resign in the larger interest of the masses and taking into account democratic pre-requisites. We pray for her complete recovery from the bottom of our hearts,? the party said. PTI also demanded a change in the law regarding taking oath citing these two cases. Dar, who was the former finance minister, faces corruption cases filed in light of the Panama papers verdict by the Supreme Court. The accountability court, which is hearing the case, declared him an absconder after he failed to appear before it after a couple of hearings. Dar is currently in London seeking medical treatment. Kulsoom has also been seeking medical treatment in the United Kingdom after being diagnosed of cancer. She won the by-poll on NA-120 after it fell vacant following Nawaz?s disqualification by the Supreme Court.

The PML-N leader termed Nawaz?s protest a ?drama?, to which the assembly members from PTI stood at their seats as a sign of protest. Expressing anger over Ali's statements, PTI leader Arif Alvi said the words of ?drama? and ?power theft? should be expunged from the proceeding's records. To this, the deputy speaker said the word ?drama? would be taken back but nothing about power theft would be.

Former secretary of the union council in Bara Kahu, Mohammad Umar, claimed in the Supreme Court today that the NOC submitted by Imran in the court related to his Bana Gala residence was never issued by the local authority. Kyani termed Umar?s claims a pack of lies and said everything, from buying land to construction of the Bani Gala residence, was done as per law. "No permission was needed for the mansion?s construction but even then Imran directed me to acquire a written order," claimed the PTI leader. Kyani claimed he and his father visited the UC office of Bara Kahu to acquire the NOC and he collected the documents personally. He further added that he will present himself in court to record his statement if he is summoned. Slamming ?political jesters? for cropping up mischief against Imran, Kayani said these people have faced embarrassment in courts previously too.

The NOC is a computerised copy whereas the union council had no computer systems and work was done manually, Umar elaborated. Umar claimed the blueprint for the residence was also fake, saying the union council had asked Imran to submit a blueprint for a go-ahead but it was never submitted.
