LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has served a legal notice on Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman Imran Khan for levelling a “baseless” allegation of offering him bribe of Rs10 billion to remain silent on Panama case.
“The chief minister has served a legal notice on him (Imran Khan) which he will receive in a couple of days,” Punjab government spokesman Malik Muhammad Ahmed told a press conference here on Thursday.
Mr Khan has recently claimed that a “common friend” made an offer of Rs10bn to him on behalf of Shahbaz Sharif and Hamza Shahbaz.
Criticising the PPP for holding a protest camp at Nasser Bagh against loadshedding, Malik Ahmed said: “Ours [protest camp] at Minar-i-Pakistan was different from PPP’s because we were protesting against non-delivery [of PPP regime] and PPP is doing so on our delivery. There has been no comparison of loadshedding between the PPP’s and PML-N’s governments.”
