Amir Muqam reacts to son’s arrest over alleged corruption

Reacting to his son’s arrest, he said that such tactics of the government and its communication minister cannot deter him.

Lahore (Pakistan Point News – 14th May, 2019) Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Amir Muqam has reacted to the arrest of his son over corruption charges.

The PML-N Khyber Pakhtunkhwa president said that his son is clean, adding that he would not stay quiet over vengeful activities of the government against opposition.

Reacting to his son’s arrest, he said that such tactics of the government and its communication minister cannot deter him.

He said that institutions are being used against him over Murad Saeed’s behest.

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) should fulfil legal requirements based on truth and evidence instead of trying to please Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Condemning the action against political opponents, he said that his party will protest in and outside the Assembly.

Ami Muqam said that he would reach out to the courts for justice.

The FIA arrested Amir Muqam's son along with five other contractors for alleged corruption in the construction of the Shangla-Alpuri Road.

FIA said the company had to complete the project costing Rs850 million in one year, but it could not be completed even after 10 years. The estimated cost of the project has now crossed Rs2,800 million.
