Imran Khan can't be a leader of youth: Former Pak President

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief Imran Khan.

"Just imagine how much money he offered me to be silent.

If he had said it behind closed doors it would be different". "Let me tell you that the Sharif family had even made him a very good offer and promised to "entertain" him if he could convince me", the 64-year-old cricketer-turned- politician claimed.

Speaking in an interview, Khan said that the person who made an offer is close to Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif but in case if he reveals his name, the person will get into trouble, further adding that the offer was made two weeks ago.

The information said that Imran Khan was trying to make the decision of the honorable judges controversial.

Marriyum said that Imran Khan's allegation was totally baseless and was a continuation of his attitude of leveling baseless allegations against the personalities and institutions of the Country.

It is worth mentioning here that Imran Khan while addressing a gathering in Peshawar's Shaukat Khanum Hospital on Tuesday, claimed that he was offered Rs 10 billion to stay silent over the Panamagate issue. "Rs10 billion... If he can offer me this much money, just imagine how much he would offer to others", Imran Khan haid said.

The high-profile graft case is about alleged money laundering by Sharif in 1990s when he twice served as the Prime Minister to purchase assets in London.
