Lahore, Mar. 1 (ANI): Former Pakistani captain Imran Khan has called on the Pakistan Government to send an official delegation to the US to negotiate the release of terrorism-accused Pakistani neurologist, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui.
Addressing a press conference, Khan also urged the PML-N to play the role of a responsible opposition party and raise the Aafia issue in the National Assembly.
The Dawn quoted Khan as saying that the PPP Government should take concrete steps for Dr Aafia's release, and the entire nation should stand united on the issue.
Khan also described the present Pakistani regime as hopeless, as "it would not impart education and employment to the youth."
He also pointed out that expenses of foreign tours of the Prime Minister and the President were being paid by poor people of Pakistan.
Rulers, however, moved their assets abroad to evade the tax net, he added. (ANI)
