ISLAMABAD - PTI Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday questioned how Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif could visit the home of Indian steel tycoon Jindal with his businessman son Hassan Nawaz when it is clearly a conflict of interest.
Imran pointed out that no western democratic leader does business while in office as it is a clear conflict of interest Imran also said that it was regrettable that the notion of conflict of interest is totally ignored by our leaders when in power. The Sharifs' entire business has multiplied while they have been in power. Imran declared that even more disturbing is the fact that his family is one of UK's biggest investors.
Yet, instead of bringing his own funds back to Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif has done numerous overseas trips to attract investment from overseas, Imran stated. Imran concluded that going to the steel magnate's house for tea in New Delhi when he couldn't find time to meet the Hurriyet leaders reflected the misplaced priorities of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
