Sialkot: PTI Chairman has said he has recorded a video that contains the names of those who want to kill him.

Addressing a large gathering of workers in Sialkot, he said the video had been kept at a safe place.

"If something happens to me this video will appear before the nation," Khan said, adding a conspiracy is being hatched against him indoors in Pakistan and abroad.

"I have named a person in the video who is involved in the conspiracy," the PTI stalwart told during his public address.

He said the video also contained the names of those who were involved in letting his government fallen.

He said the video was recorded because the most powerful elements in the country always escaped accountability.

Raising finger on the judiciary's role, Khan said he humbly asked the judiciary if Shehbaz Sharif, his one son and another fugitive son were involved in the corruption of Rs24 billion, then "tell me any one country in the world where the people with corruption cases have been brought to power"?
   

The PTI chief said Hamza Shehbaz threatened FIA officer Dr Rizwan who died of stress and heart attack.

"Who will protect the institutions of this country, I ask the judiciary that the institutions of the country are being destroyed in front of you. Why petty thieves are imprisoned in the country's jails?"

Imran Khan said during his tenure, he wanted to hold the corrupt politicians accountable, but the "powerful people" who could do that have now accepted corruption as a norm.

He urged people to come out against the government and support the PTI as if they do not do this, "you will have no future". "Join me in this movement and end this imposed government."

He asked his workers to meet him Islamabad as the sea of people would the flood the capital.  

Meanwhile, PTI workers lodged protests in major cities on the call of their leaders after local administration and police disallowed the holding of public meeting at designated place in Sialkot.

It is pertinent to mention that the federal government has decided to raise the prices of petroleum products by 30 rupees per litre, with the hike set to go into effect at midnight tonight.

This was announced by Finance Minister Miftah Ismail while addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Thursday night.

Islamabad: Minister for Religious Affairs Mufti Abdul Shakoor here on Friday assured the National Assembly that the government was negotiating with the quarters concerned to further bring down the expenses of Hajj-2022 below Rs. 6,50,000.

In a policy statement in the House, he said, “I am still negotiating with the Saudi government and other quarters concerned to further reduce the expenses of upcoming Hajj from 650,000 aimed at extending maximum facilities to intending pilgrims in performing the religious obligation.”

He said the Ministry of Religious Affairs had hired the residential buildings in Makkah at the rate of 2100 Saudi Riyal against the rate of 3600 Riyal paid in 2019 by the previous government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

He said his ministry had hired buildings in Madina-tul-Munawara at 720 Riyal against the rate of 2100 Riyal paid in 2019. He said Saudi Arabia had fixed 9500 Riyal expense for each intending pilgrim of D-Category against 5500 Riyal.” Had there the PTI government, the expense of Hajj would have been Rs 1100,000 per pilgrim,” he added.

“Under the leadership of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman, the expense of the upcoming Hajj had been brought down to Rs 65,000 and efforts were underway to further reduce it,” he said.

He said expense of the food and transport had also been reduced by the government of Saudi Arabia on the request of Pakistan. The minister said soon after assuming the charge, he was shocked to see when his ministry briefed him about the exorbitant expense of Hajj.

“I made it clear that I will prefer to resign and leave the government rather announcing the expensive hajj.” Mufti Abdul Shakoor said his leader Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman had also directed him to reduce the expense of the hajj.

He also assured that the corruption committed in his Ministry by the previous government would be dug out and shared with the House.

The minister said a comprehensive and affordable package for Umrah and Ziaraat would soon be introduced.
