Gogi bachao Tehreek



May 7, 2022


Though it was not unexpected but the former PM broke the tradition of defending a private individual in the face of daily mounting corruption allegations. It must be noted that the politicos usually defend the conduct and record of their political colleagues such as the ones who are unlawfully incarcerated or hounded by the state on charges that they call trumped-up. Former PM defended Farah Khan aka Farah Gogi, a close aide of his wife Bushra Bibi as absolutely innocent describing the corruption probe against her as a political vendetta against him. His defence came after the NAB initiated an inquiry against her for allegedly possessing illegal assets beyond known sources of income, money laundering, and maintaining various accounts in the name of businesses. He went to quite a length in declaring that the NAB was deliberately aimed at finding ways to discredit him in the eyes of the people prompting NAB’s Lahore branch issued a press release that addressed Imran’s question of whether it had the jurisdiction to investigate Farah’s case. NAB pointed out that it could initiate an inquiry of assets in excess of income against any public office holder or their family members. TW
