PTI accused of receiving funding from abroad

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Pervez Rashid on Thursday accused Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) of getting funds from abroad, saying its rallies and public meetings are organised through financial assistance by Jewish and Hindu lobbies in US. Speaking at a press conference, he said that millions of rupees being spent on PTI rallies in Pakistan, are being arranged with the help of dollars coming from America-based Jewish and Hindu lobbies.

He said as per the law all the political parties of Pakistan are bound not to receive any funds from foreigners. Rashid said the ECP was trying to cover up Imran Khan's crime of taking funds from foreigners which he used for political purposes. "We have a documentary proof of Imran Khan's signatures acknowledging receipt of funds," he added.

He said his claims were based on documentary proof obtained from a US department. He said this file contains names of all those firms Jewish, Hindu and Sikh firms which 'sent their donations to the PTI'. He further said the PTI Chairman Imran Khan not only kept the 'funds from foreign firms' hidden from the ECP but also used them on his protest sit-ins. "Imran Khan raises allegations on others, he too will have to answer my questions," he added. The minister said that Imran Khan staged the sit-ins in Islamabad with an aim to stop the scheduled visit of Chinese President to Pakistan. "Imran Khan, you are functioning as a tool for Pakistan's enemies," he added.
