Prime Minister Imran Khan directed concerned authorities on Monday to broaden the scope of their operation against the land mafia in the country.
The directions from the premier came while presiding over a meeting of government officials wherein they apprised PM Imran of matters related to Broadsheet, foreign funding case and crackdown against land grabbers.
“The PML-N has always provided patronage to occupiers of government lands,” the premier said. “No one can occupy government land without political patronage,” he added.
In what appeared to be a reference to the demolition of ‘illegal construction’ at PML-N MPA Saiful Malook Khokhar’s house, the premier stated that attempts to reclaim government land were also “surprisingly being termed as ‘political revenge’”.
He further directed the government’s spokespersons to inform the nation about the details of the operations being carried out against land grabbers. On the foreign funding case, the premier stated that, “Those who trapped us in the foreign funding case are now trapped in it themselves.”
