ISLAMABAD:(APS)April 6, 2016-Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid has said that PML (N) believes in transparency and presented itself for accountability whenever allegations were levelled against it.
He was addressing a news conference along with PML (N) leaders Dr Tariq Fazal Chaudhry and Danyal Aziz in Islamabad this evening.
The Minister said PML (N) formed judicial commission when allegations of rigging were levelled and went for audit to clear itself of accusations of alleged wrongdoing in a power project.
He said the party also has an internal mechanism of accountability.
The Minister, however, regretted that Imran Khan levels allegations against others but has not so far got cleared himself despite allegations of corruption in Shaukat Khanum Hospital and Bani Gala property.
To a question, he said there is not a single word in Panama papers about any illegality or wrong doing of the Prime Minister, his sons or his daughter. He said the family of the Prime Minister was clean and that is why Mian Nawaz Sharif has announced setting up of a judicial commission.
The Minister said the PML (N) government was successfully addressing the challenges of terrorism, load-shedding and economic ills. He said its political opponents are finding themselves politically squeezed because of good performance of the Government and are, therefore, resorting to politics of allegations.
He said there was no threat to the Government till 2018 and even beyond.
Danyal Aziz presented documents before media to substantiate his claim saying Imran Khan invested money collected in the name of Shaukat Khanum Hospital in off-shore companies.
