ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb has alleged that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) ‘is being funded by Jews and Hindus’.
“The matter of PTI’s funding by Jews and Hindus has been referred to Election Commission today. The commission has yet to investigate this case about PTI whose leader stages sit-ins with the funding of Jews and Hindus, halting the way of Pakistan’s prosperity on the behest of his foreign donors,” she said outside the Supreme Court while commenting on today’s decision.
The minister said standard maintained in Panama Papers case has been negated in this case. She claimed that not only PTI leadership but also the entire party will be disqualified by the Election Commission in foreign funding case.
The Minister of State said PML-N has the constitutional right to express reservations on these judgments. - Samaa
