Aitzaz following Imran Khan’s agenda
Lahore—Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan on Friday termed the opposition members intellectually barren and accused them of eyeing chaos in the country. He said Aitzaz Ahsan is following the agenda of Imran Khan and has become his front man. He said politics of Aitzaz is negation of reconciliation and consensus policy of PPP and Asif Ali Zardari. He said that the Punjab government will follow the decision of federal government regarding increase in salaries of the employees in next budget.
While talking to the media outside Punjab Assembly, Sanaullah Khan said that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has ceased to exist in Punjab. Aitzaz Ahsan was asking Prime Minister to answer seven questions but now is taking about 700, he added. He offered Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Mehmoodur Rasheed to move a resolution against Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif over absence from sessions. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf moved a resolution against the Chief Minister after Sanaullah called for it.
Sanaullah said that opposition was only working on agenda that is aimed at dismissing PM Nawaz Sharif from the seat. Opposition is not tabling workable demands over corruption allegations against the government, he added. He said the opposition wants to remove Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from its way as politician. He said opposition is unable to face prime minister. He said opposition is afraid of prime minister.
He said PML-N under the leadership of Mian Nawaz Sharif will eliminate menace of terrorism and overcome energy crisis and will complete China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project. He said the enemy is hatching conspiracies to foil CPEC project, adding that India has allocated $30 million to foil CPEC project and to destabilize Pakistan. He said the PML-N government will complete these projects.
He said that PPP leader Aitzaz Ahsan is responsible for quitting Raja Riaz Ahmed from PPP. He said chapter of PPP is being closed from Punjab, adding that initially Shah Mehmood Qureshi had played vital role in this regard and now Aitzaz Ahsan is playing heinous character. He said Aitzaz Ahsan is directly involved in Raja Riaz’s quitting PPP. He said Aitzaz Ahsan had harmed the PPP during the restoration movement for former chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.
He said politics of Aitzaz is negation of reconciliation and consensus policy of PPP and Asif Ali Zardari. He said opposition is following the agenda to create unrest in county and stop country from making progress. He said opposition will not succeed in its designs.
He said Panama paper leaks is not matter of question and answer, adding that first day opposition said parliamentary committee should be formed, second day said Shoaib Suddle commission should investigate the matter and third day said judicial commission should be formed under the chairmanship of chief justice of Pakistan to investigate the matter. He said when prime minister written letter to chief justice then opposition said there is matter of ToRs.
He said when government replied seven questions then Aitzaz said he would ask 700 questions, adding that when government will reply 700 questions he will ask 7000 questions. He said the purpose of oppositions is to create unrest and chaos in country. He said Aitzaz is following the agenda of Imran Khan and has become his front man. He said question answer is not their purpose.
Rana Sanaullah said that no one in whole world say that the formation of offshore companies is illegal, adding that the offshore companies are established according to the laws of concerned countries. He said it is the philosophy of Imran Khan that whosoever has formed offshore company is dishonest and he has committed corruption. He said Imran Khan should first respond to the offshore companies holding by him and his sister and his party leaders.
Replying a question he said Mehmoodur Reashid should table resolution regarding absence of Shahbaz Sharif from Punjab Assembly, adding that government will introduce amendment and then PTI will protest and will go home after raising slogans outside assembly. He said that the Punjab government will follow the decision of federal government regarding increase in salaries of the employees in budget.—SABAH
