Punjab rulers grabbing govt lands: Babar Awan

Former law minister Senator Dr Babar Awan said on Wednesday that Punjab rulers were busy in grabbing official lands instead of improving law and order situation, and fighting dengue virus in the province.

Addressing a rally staged in support of President Asif Ali Zardari by Pakistan People’s Party, Babar Awan said that it was the country’s misfortune when PPP founder Chairman Zulfikar Ali Bhutto sacrificed his life in 1977 and protected the national institutions and democracy, whereas Sharif brothers fled to Jeddah by begging pardon from Dictator Pervez Musharraf.

He lamented the Punjab government for bad governance, saying that there was worst law and order situation. ‘Daku Raj’ prevailed in the province as scores of incidents of kidnapping, robbery and murder were taking place daily. On the other hand the Punjab rulers were busy in grabbing government lands.
