PML-N gives PTI two weeks to reply about mega scandal in KPK

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz on Tuesday showed proof regarding the mega scandal of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government and asked the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) to reply in this regard within two weeks.

“This is a historical mega-scandal which has now been proved by the PTI’s own white paper in which it was confessed that the KP government had invested Rs 378.71 million in shares of listed companies”, PML-N Daniyal Aziz said in a press conference here.

He said the KP government gambled in stock market and lost huge money, so in order to cover that money, it fudged the figures of several hydal power projects in the province which were to be completed by 2015-16.

He alleged that Rs 25 billion was allocated for completion of numerous hydel power projects in the province but millions of rupees from it were squandered by investing in the stock market to benefit rich business people, including some PTI leaders interfering in the affairs of the provincial government.

“We will not leave them free in this mega scandal and will give them two weeks to take action against the culprits”, he said adding if they failed to do so the federal government would take action and send the case to National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Daniyal Aziz said the PTI was committing contempt of Supreme Court by once again raising talks about planned rigging in the general elections 2013.

He said PTI had committed with the PML-N that Judicial Commission’s verdict would be acceptable but now they were again creating fuss and had started threatening to resuming their sit-ins on the basis of their demands of resigning of Election Commission members.

He advised PTI to take legal rout for action against the members EC instead of giving threats of blocking Islamabad.

On the occasion Tariq Fazal Chaudhry MNA said that PTI was putting pressure upon judiciary in order to get the decision of their own will.

He said was of the view that PTI had failed to fulfill their pledges made during their election campaign, therefor they were creating unnecessary hue and cry.

He said NADRA’s chairman was appointed by mutual advisory and PTI’s consent was also involved in the appointment of the chairman but now PTI Chief was demanding resignation from him.
