PML-N’s Mumtaz Bhutto rejects reports of his becoming Governor Sindh

LARKANA: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Sardar Mumtaz Ali Bhutto has rejected the reports of his becoming Governor Sindh.

Talking to media persons here on Tuesday upon his return from Lahore, Bhutto said that the rumours about his becoming governor were as false as the ones about him being made president. He said that if he became governor, some people would get heart attack while others would flee the country. “This is because my governorship would be an outright war against crime and corruption,” he added.

He further said that the destruction wrecked by the Zardari regime will only be repaired through accountability by which the billions of rupees hidden in foreign banks would be recovered.  He said it has already been disclosed that the Swiss accounts alone hold Rs83 billion. Even if only his amount was returned to the country, it could stop price hike but this could not happen in reconciliatory setup, he said.

Mumtaz Bhutto said that the voters gave the PML-N the exclusive mandate to rule and not make alliances. It is because of reconciliatory politics and the consequential corruption and bad governance that the voters wiped out the PPP in the last general elections, he added.
