Prime Minister Imran Khan kicked off Saturday the electoral campaign of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf for the upcoming Azad Jammu and Kashmir elections. “The only reason why I could say ‘absolutely not’ to the US is that I don’t have properties abroad.” All my money is here, my property is here which is why I am not scared of anything. “If my money was abroad, then I would’ve also allowed them to carry out drone attacks in Pakistan.”
