Sindh Minister and Archives and PPP leader Sharjeel Inam Memon on Saturday questioned that now when the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had given its verdict in the reference filed against PTI Chairman Imran Khan, when will justice be done in the case of former prime minister and PPP’s founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s (ZAB) judicial murder?, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Addressing a press conference at Sindh Archives in Karachi, he said that yesterday a ‘big hypocrite’ (Imran Khan) had been disqualified. “Earlier, Imran had proven himself to be an incompetent premier. But yesterday the ECP declared he was also involved in corrupt practices,” he added.

Memon wondered as to how the PTI chairman could object to the integrity of the chief election commissioner when he himself had appointed and called him an honest man.  

Alleging that Imran had purchased expensive gifts at cheaper rates, the provincial minister said now the former prime minister would face a trial in the court. “He did not show the exact amount in his statement with which he bought these gifts,” he said.

PPP leader did not stop there, and went on to say that not more than 200 to 300 people participated in each protest by the party. 

Memon demanded that the PTI workers setting properties on fire during yesterday’s protests should be taken to the task. “PTI leaders jumped over the ECP office’s gate yesterday,” he said.

Sindh minister asked as to how there could be two sets of laws for different segments of the society. “When the election commission has already declared several politicians disqualified, what’s wrong with declaring Imran ineligible for any public office,” he questioned.

Calling Imran ‘pampered’ and a blue-eyed boy of the establishment, he made it clear that no special treatment of the PTI chairman would now be tolerated.

Terming the removal of Pakistan’s name from the FATF’s grey list a ‘feat’, Memon claimed that the credit for that went to Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. 

He said that the failure of India to retain Pakistan’s name on the grey list was an extremely good news.
