LAHORE: Punjab Information Minister Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan has said that leader of opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif is foreseeing his arrest in cases pertaining to money laundering, fake TTs and corruption cases and is trying unsuccessfully to politicize his possible arrest.
Reacting to the press conference of the PML-N president, he said that today’s presser before his possible arrest is a last ditch effort.
“Your arrest is not a personal wish or political revenge of Prime Minister Imran Khan, but it has become necessary for the courts and accountability institutions due to your perpetual, radiant and unprecedented corruption,” he said.
The Minister said that the younger Sharif’s claims of not committing corruption of even a single penny tantamount to deceiving people, adding that he embezzled trillions of dollars, euros, dinars, dirhams and rupees.
The provincial minister said that the PML-N president was trying hard to douse the fire initiated by his elder brother former PM and party supremo Nawaz Sharif and his niece Maryam Nawaz, adding that the elder Sharif’s speech in the opposition’s All Parties Conference (APC) wasted his two years of hard work.
“Shehbaz Shahbaz Sharif had made a fuss over the country s economy when coronavirus pandemic broke out,” he said but by the grace of Almighty Allah and PM Imran’s policies the government passed this test.
