Country’s progress impossible without accountability of corrupt: PM Imran

KARACHI: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that the country couldn’t progress until all the corrupt elements wouldn’t be brought to justice.
Talking to media at Governor House in Sindh after meeting members of the business community, he said that Rs10 to 12 billion were being laundered every year from the country, adding that corruption could not be eliminated from the country until the corrupt are handed sentences.
Imran Khan said that the opposition had been talking about overthrowing the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government from the day first, adding that the opposition didn’t even let the parliament proceedings go smoothly, adding that they [opposition] didn’t let him speak on the first day.
He said: “They have been blackmailing from the very first day of the government and wanted to spread chaos by blaming the government for the price hike. Their only aim is to listen three words from my mouth that is NRO but I will never say these three words as I am answerable to almighty Allah.”
The prime minister said the country was passing through hard times, because of the two previous NROs and the subsequent debt of Rs30trillion.
“Why we should not talk of the past corruption and plunder of the previous rulers,” he said, adding keeping silence on their misdeeds would amount to treason with the country.
The prime minister said the country had immense potential to move ahead on the path of progress and prosperity, and appealed to the people to pay taxes for a strengthened economy.
The country could not move ahead if the people and traders were reluctant to pay taxes, he said and maintained that only one per cent out of the total 220 million population were paying taxes.
He said fewer people in the country were overburdened with the taxes as the industry was paying 70 per cent taxes alone. The government could not go on printing currency as it would escalate price hike, he added and cautioned that if the people did not realize their responsibility to pay taxes, the country could run into hyper-inflation.
“There is dire need to change the mindset for paying taxes,” he emphasized.
The prime minister said that both former president Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo Nawaz Sharif have made cases against each other in 1990s, adding that they are facing cases made by them.
