Javed Hashmir, formerly affiliated with both the PTI and PML-N, highlighted sacrifices rendered by politicians and said it was politicians who had lost their lives for the country.

The veteran political leader advised politicians to tread carefully and claimed that he had never embezzled a single penny while serving as an MNA and minister. “I even sold my house to make ends meet.”

Referring to former ruler Pervez Musharraf, he said he had fled from the country and was now acting as if he were a king. Stressing on the need for accountability of politicians, Hashmi asked if anyone could name the judge who had wealth in Panama.

“Can anyone take his name, can anyone hold him accountable, can anyone ask why he hid money in Panama?” Hashmi, critical of the PTI chairman, said Imran had always required an issue to keep relevant. “During the sit-in, the issue was rigging, and now he [Imran] has Panama as an issue,” said the veteran politician.

Referring to Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution, Hashmi said no one was Sadiq and Amin in the country. “I think no one can be Sadiq and Amin other than the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him).

During his news conference, Hashmi spoke of his 50 years in politics and informed reporters that this could be the last news conference of his career.-Online
