FAISALABAD, Pakistan (Oct. 07) – Asif Ali Zaradari and Nawaz Sharif are not meant to keep check on one another because both of them have kept their black money outside Pakistan, said Imran Khan, the cricketer-turned-politician and chief of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf (PTI).

Khan, addressing a rally in Faisalabad, further said if PTI comes in power then it would implement a law under which all those will be banned who don’t declare their assets as corrupt politicians could not be expected to keep a check on one another since they would strike a deal to get out.
He criticised the government policies of increasing tax burden on poor making them even poorer. Pakistan is presented as beggar in the world despite of vast natural resources it has, just because of corrupt politicians. The only solution to take Pakistan to the roads of prosperity is ‘to get rid of corrupt politicians, he said.
He said that the only reasons that both Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari had the most of their wealth saved in foreign assets was that they wanted to evade taxes and ferry off their ill-gotten wealth.
The first step PTI would take once assumes the power, Khan said, would be to introduce a law where in those whose assets are in foreign countries and undisclosed would not be allowed to take part in local politics.
