LAHORE: Director with a Chinese company working in Pakistan, Javed Sadiq has denied allegations of Imran Khan, Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) about him being front man of Punjab government.

In an exclusively brief talk with Dunya News, Javed Sadiq brushed off all the allegations by saying that Khan’s knowledge about him was wrong.

Sadiq said in the statment that the allegations leveled against him by Khan earlier day were untrue as according to him, Punjab government never reached an understanding with him over tender of development projects.

He went on record to assert that Arfa Karim Information Technology (IT) Tower’s tender was granted to him in Pervez Elahi’s tenure and Islamabad airport’s contract by the government of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).
