Chairman PTI, Imran Khan, today regretted the federal government's deliberate attempts to impede the KP Ehtesab Commission from conducting accountability of all, including politicians and political leaders. Khan reminded that fighting corruption and having a strong independent institution for accountability has been a key commitment of PTI to the people of Pakistan.
Khan pointed out that when PTI formed the government in KP, it set about operationalising this commitment. It took 2 years to set up an independent KP Ehtesab Commission, which was supported by all Parties in the KP Assembly. Now these parties are trying to resist the steps it is taking because they were not prepared for substantive accountability. A PTI minister & a PTI MPA's father were the first to be arrested by it.
Unfortunately, Khan said, the Federal govt is making it difficult for KP Ehtesab Commission to arrest criminals hiding out in Islamabad. This is a clear effort to allow those guilty of corrupt practices to escape accountability as it has become a practice to do muk muka rather than expose corruption.
Such actions are unacceptable Khan categorically stated. "We are determined to counter efforts to prevent us from arresting politicians/leaders of other political parties wanted by KP Ehtesab Committee. We will hold everyone guilty of corruption accountable before the Ehtesab Law of KP."
Khan concluded that no one should have any doubts on this count as PTI's commitment to ending corruption and punishing those guilty of the same is unwavering.
