Senior Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah conveyed to Prime Minister Imran Khan in unambiguous terms on Friday that if the PML-N came to power in future, it would demolish his Zaman Park home in case he went ahead with his plan to bulldoze Sharif brothers’ Jati Umra residence.
Addressing a press conference along with another senior party leader Ahsan Iqbal, he also threatened the Punjab chief secretary and other bureaucrats with retribution in case they complied with the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government’s directives.
“You will stay here and so will your children,” Sanaullah said while addressing the Punjab chief secretary.
“Don’t obey the government orders just for the sake of promotions,” Punjab former law minister asked provincial bureaucrats, and added, “By complying with the instructions of your bosses, you are crossing the red line.”
He made it clear to them that if tomorrow any of them said he was helpless then in the face of government pressure, this argument would not be tenable.
Sanaullah said at a time when the entire country was jammed due to protests by the activists of a religious party and people were dying in ambulances, the plan was made to raze the residence of the Sharif family to the ground.
“They had done the same thing with Khokhar brothers whose homes they had bulldozed taking advantage of the night,” he added.
Speaking on the occasion, Ahsan Iqbal said that there existed the rule of law crisis in the country for which the PTI government was to blame.
He accused Prime Minister Imran Khan of pitting political parties against each other to create chaos in the country.
He lashed out at PM Imran’s anti-business policies. Ahsan said the only job the ‘selected’ prime minister had specialized in was to call the opposition names.
He said the country’s law and order situation was so pathetic that social media services had to be suspended today (Friday) to prevent gatherings by members of a religious outfit.
“But the ‘selected’ is more concerned about demolishing the Sharif family’s residence at Jati Umra rather than attending to the law and order problem,” he wondered.
