Paragon scam: Khawaja brothers’ judicial remand extended till Sep 23
LAHORE (92 News) – An accountability court on Tuesday extended the judicial remand of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Salman Rafique till September 23 in the Paragon Housing Society scandal case. They were produced in court amid tight security. Talking to the media after the case hearing, Khawaja Saad Rafique said that the incompetence of the government had made all institutions a dustbin. “People are starving in New Pakistan. Price-hike is at peak. The government has gagged the opposition,” he said. The PML-N leader said that if the country could run by putting them into jails then it is okay. “The prime minister is a hurdle in the production orders, which are not being issued,” he added. Khawaja Saad Rafique questioned whether it was not their right to represent their constituencies. “Those who sacrificed their lives for the country are being meted out this treatment,” he said. He said that Imran Khan had staged 150-day sit-in, but the opposition was not being allowed to speak in the assembly. “The PML-N will part of any anti-government movement,” he said. Khawaja Saad Rafique said that India had attacked Kashmir, while the government had attacked the opposition in Pakistan. “The prime minister alone visited Muzaffarabad, but did not accompany the opposition,” he concluded.
