LAHORE:Punjab Information Minister Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan has said that the allegation leveled by NAB against Usman Buzdar of corruption and misuse of power is beyond understanding.
Punjab Information Minister Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan was responding on the NAB notice to Chief Minister Punjab summoning him on August 12.
The Minister said that “The allegation leveled against Usman Buzdar of corruption and misuse of power is beyond understanding. The CM will respectfully appear before the anti-corruption watchdog and answer all questions.”
The provincial minister said that the authority to issue alcohol permit lies with excise DG – who issued the license – and not with chief minister.
Fayyaz Chohan said, “Excise DG sent the file to the CM secretariat which returned it. The license which was issued by excise DG has been cancelled.
He also lamented on the opposition and said ‘looters’ association’ created ruckus over Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar’s summoning by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
