We will win the Senate elections, claims Imran Khan

Prime Minister Imran Khan has claimed that his government will be victorious in the coming Senate elections, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a meeting of the government spokespersons in Islamabad on Thursday, Imran Khan said “We want that the Senate elections should be transparent.”

The prime minister said the federal government will continue efforts for holding Senate elections through the open ballot.

He said the government has decided to make amendments in the Constitution for holding the Senate polls through the open ballot because it wants to ensure transparency in the voting process.

Adviser to the Prime Minister on Interior and Accountability Mirza Shahzad Akbar briefed the meeting regarding the land grabbing cases against Khokhar brothers, Javed Latif, Daniyal Aziz and Khurram Dastgir. He said the government land worth billions was recovered by the relevant authorities.

Imran Khan praised the Punjab government’s efforts against the ‘qabza mafia’, saying the operation against the mafia will continue.

The participants have been given briefings on important matters including the report of Transparency International, the Broadsheet scandal, ongoing actions against land grabbing mafia and others.

Imran Khan said the government will not allow those making money through illegal means in the garb of politics and democracy.

The meeting also discussed the press conference conducted by PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz in support of the Khokhar brothers. Shahzad Akbar said the government land worth Rs15 to 20 billion has been retrieved which would be used for the public interest.

The government leaders branded Maryam Nawaz as PTI’s “undercover agent”, saying “she was shooting in her foot herself.”

A briefing was given to the spokespersons regarding the recent report of Transparency International (TI). Imran Khan hailed the annual report released by Transparency International regarding the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI). He said those running propaganda regarding the TI report will get aware of the facts after receiving its translation in the Urdu language.

Regarding the Broadsheet scandal, the premier said that Justice (retd) Azmat Saeed Shaikh will head the inquiry commission.

Imran Khan said those who levelled allegations of foreign funding against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) were found involved in getting foreign funds. He added Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman will be accountable in foreign funding case as no one is above the law.
