CM serves defamation notice on Uzma Bukhari

Staff Reporter

Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar on Thursday served a Rs250 million defamation notice on PML-N MPA Uzma Bukhari over levelling “baseless accusations” against him.

The chief minister’s legal team served the notice on the PML-N Punjab spokesperson, asking her to apologise for the baseless allegations she has levelled against the CM in 14 days or pay Rs250 million in damages.

The notice reads: Ms Uzma Bukhari made “misleading and provocative” remarks against the Chief Minister at a press conference.

“The woman lawmaker had accused the CM Office of extorting money for making posting and transfers in the province.”

It is to be recalled that in January, Adviser to PM on Accountability Shahzad Akbar had served a Rs500 million defamation notice on Uzma Bukhari over for issuing “completely untrue and libellous” statement against him.

Shahzad Akbar had also served a similar notice on PML-N MNA Marryiam Aurangzeb over “defamatory statement.”
