Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) member and Senator Dr. Sania Nishtar stated that out of the 15 billion rupees raised during the telethon for the flood victims, PTI Chairman Imran Khan only received 4 billion rupees.
Imran Khan hosted a telethon for the flood victims and approximately 15 billion rupees were raised.
According to Sania Nishtar, Imran Khan was given 15 billion rupees but only received 4.32 billion rupees.
She said there were many possibilities as to why the remaining cash from the telethon was not received, such as restrictions on overseas transactions and nonpayment of the credit card.
