ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Maryam Aurangzeb has challenged PTI leader Imran Khan to appear before the Supreme Court and the Election Commission to respond to allegations leveled against him.

She was talking to newsmen after hearing of a case by Supreme Court regarding offshore companies of PTI Chairman Imran Khan and Secretary General Jahangir Tareen in Islamabad on Monday afternoon.

The Minister of State said the PTI leader has been leveling baseless allegations against PML (N) leadership during the last four years and now he should face corruption charges before the apex court and the Commission.

Talking to newsmen, Minister of State for Capital Administration and Development said Imran Khan has double standards on the issue of corruption.

He pointed out that the PTI Chairman accuses others of tax evasion with reference to setting up of off-shore companies and describes his own off-shore companies as a means for tax evasion.

The Minister of State said leave other things apart, Imran Khan is unable to explain how he got his Banni Gala property.

PML (N) leader Hanif Abbasi, who is petitioner in the case, said his case is aimed at exposing real face of the PTI leadership.

Daniyal Aziz said Imran Khan committed to eradicate corruption in 90 days but everyone knows what he did to Ehtesab Commission in KPK.

The Minister said PTI has rendered no service in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and has only wasted peoples time during the last for years.

She said PTI is just venting out its perplexity out of its failures in KPK by continuing its mantra of allegations and political bickering.

Marriyum Aurangzeb said PTI chief will have to answer the people of Pakistan for defaming state institutions and hampering the development process.

Later, Minister of State for Capital Administration and Development Division Tariq Fazal Chaudhary said the Prime Minister has not only presented himself for accountability but also his three generations.
