Lahore: The Lahore High Court (LHC) gave a last chance to Senior Punjab Minister Aleem Khan on Tuesday to submit his response on a petition seeking his disqualification as member of the Punjab Assembly.
A bench of High Court Lahore heard the petition filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) candidate from PP-158 Rana Ahsan Sharafat on Tuesday.
The petitioner urged before the court that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader did not show his tax returns in the nomination papers for the 2018 general elections. And Hence Aleem Khan is not eligible to be the member of provincial Assembly, and urged that he should be disqualified from legislature.
In August 2018, Aleem Khan claimed that he had declared all his assets before the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and Federal Board of Revenue (FBR).
While talking to media correspondents he said: “I have been serving in the opposition for the last 11 years and not a single corruption charge was proved against me. I am with Imran Khan and will take forward the mission of change in the country.”
