PTI will start preparations for 2018 polls if Panamagate case is lost: Imran Khan

ANI  |  Islamabad [Pakistan] 

Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has said that his party would start preparations for the 2018 general elections in case it loses the Panamagate case in the Supreme Court.

The PTI chief was speaking to members of the Supreme Press Association at his Banigala residence on Saturday, reports the Dawn.

Supported by the party's secretary general Jahangir Khan Tareen and senior party officials Shafqat Abbasi and Naeemul Haq, as well as lawyer Chaudhry Faisal Hussain, Imran said, the party would "mobilise public opinion through our campaign" and show "how the ruling elite has fooled the entire nation through loot and plunder".

Khan said that the PTI's vote bank was increasing exponentially with each recent by-election.

He said that PTI would also focus on gathering and organising workers in Sindh and Balochistan.

Claiming that the party has evidence to prove Qatari letter was an 'afterthought', PTI chief expressed hopefulness on the Supreme Court's expected judgment.

"We are in possession of some new documents and evidence to prove the Sharifs' money trail and I am quite confident that the new PTI legal team will be able to establish before the SC that the Qatari letter the PML-N side provided to the was just an afterthought, not factual and meant only to confuse the people," Khan said.

The PTI chief said that Prime Minister Sharif had never even hinted at his family's association with the Qatari ruling family.

Stating that his party had done what it could do, Khan said they approached Supreme as the country was not being served by the state institutions sincerely.
