PESHAWAR - General Secretary Qaumi Watan Party and sacked minister Bakht Baidar Khan filed defamation suite of one billion rupees against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan for levelling corruption allegations against him.

The notice was filed through Barrister Babar Ali, which states that Imran Khan has levelled baseless allegations against him and damages his political reputation.

He stated that due to his honesty, he won his seat of the provincial assembly and on the basis of his character was rewarded this ministry but by levelling false allegation by PTI Chairman damaged his political career.

He said that the PTI chairman has no authority to sack any minister of the cabinet. He said that he has answered the questions regarding the performance of his department and there are no proofs of corruption against him.

He said that there is no compensation of dishonouring others but he has filed a suit of one billion rupees against PTI chief Imran Khan.

It is worth mentioning here that General Secretary Qaumi Watan Party Bakht Baidar Khan was sacked by Chief Minister Parvez Khattat upon the directives of Imran Khan on the charges of corruption.
