Islamabad, November 28, 2020 (PPI-OT): Prime Minister Imran Khan says his aim and ideology is to turn Pakistan into a welfare state. In an interview with a private television channel today (Saturday), he said there is nothing wrong to review and revisit the policies to achieve the goal.

Regarding 2018 general elections, the Prime Minister said the statistics prove, including the report of FAFEN, that these were far better and transparent than the ones held in 2013. Imran Khan said he is the only leader after PPP leader Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto who waged a long political struggle.

Regarding corruption cases against the PML (N) and the PPP leadership, the Prime Minister said these are old cases registered before his coming to the power. He said we have only registered a case of money laundering against Shahbaz Sharif.

Imran Khan said we have made the institutions independent and there is no control of government on the National Accountability Bureau. The Prime Minister regretted that the opposition tried to blackmail the government on FATF legislation to get the NRO. He, however, said those who plundered the national exchequer will be held accountable.
