Fawad says Aleem Khan’s arrest reflects culture of PTI
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday said the arrest of senior Punjab minister Aleem Khan reflected the culture of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
Talking to the journalists, Fawad said that the way Aleem Khan tendered his resignation after his arrest clearly reflected the difference of PTI culture from other parties.
The information minister termed that the opposition will now find other excuses after Aleem Khan’s arrest. “There were clamours why doesn’t the government nab persons from within its own ranks… now the opposition will now find other excuses,” he added.
Fawad Chaudhry mentioned that the decision on Aleem Khan’s case will be taken on merit. He said the government was cooperating with all relevant institutions on the issue of accountability.
“Strengthening of institutions is a sign of strengthened Pakistan”, he stated. PPP leader Nasir Hussain Shah said that the arrest of Alam Khan is similar to throw dust in the eyes. He said that Khan was made scapegoat as the purpose of show off. On the other hand, PPP senior leader Qamar Zaman Kaira said that there is no balance to arrest Aleem Khan just in one case.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Talal Chaudhry said the government is badly failed now. “We don’t want deal and any relaxation,” he added.
It is worth mentioning here that Aleem Khan tendered his resignation shortly after being arrested by the National Accountability Bureau earlier in the day. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader was taken into custody when he appeared before the accountability court for the hearing of two cases pertaining to offshore companies and disproportionate assets than income against him.
