Islamabad June 17 (TNS): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief alleged on Saturday that media’s “God Father” and Geo and Jang Group chief Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman is protecting the Sharif family through “concocted stories” by taking millions of rupees in advertisements from the ruling party.
“Mr Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman has unleashed his paid workers and reporters to bringing out concocted stories to protect the Sharif family, which became the billionaire in the last 30 years despite their claim of being victimised. Mir Shakil has taken 34 crores from the government under the head of advertisements to protect the ruling family,” Imran alleged while talking to reporters outside his Bani Gala residence.
“What is the story all about the WhatsApp call? Who planted the story and what was the purpose of that story? Imran questioned while referring to a story of Jang Group’s employee and senior reporter Ansar Abbasi, who had in one of his stories that the Supreme Court Registrar made a WhatsApp call to heads of different institutions while the JIT was being formed.
The PTI chief also alleged that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif were involved in the money-laundering case while the letter of the Qatari Prince turned out to be a total fraud.
Imran questioned how the Sharif family became the billionaire and their factories and industries tripled if their claim of victimisation was to be believed.
The PTI chief warned that if anything wrong was done to the judiciary, he will come out with his workers to protect the apex court.
He claimed that Nawaz and Shahbaz will be punished and Adiala Jail will be their final destination.
