Punjab Law Minister Raja Basharat says it is PML-N who planned this hooliganism outside the NAB office to stop inquiry against its leader Maryam Nawaz in illegal transfer of 200 acre land
LAHORE: (UrduPoint/Pakistan Point News-August 11th, 2020) Punjab government held Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) responsible for violent clashes between police and the party workers outside the National Accountability Bureau Office in Lahore on Tuesday.
The law minister said that Maryam Nawaz was due before the anti-graft body for explanation about illegal transfer of 200 acres land in Raiwind. But it was very shameful to come there in convoy and with party workers.
He said PML-N could go any length to exert pressure on the institutions and today’s attack on NAB office and police revived its 1998 attack on the Supreme Court. Maryam Nawaz was violating his bail granted earlier by the court, he said, adding that the media exposed the real face of the PML-N.
He added that the whole PML-N based on treason.
PTI government believed in rule of law, he stated, pointing out that strict action would be taken against those involved in challenging the state writ. “It is for the first time in NAB’s 30 years that it came under attack,” he remarked.
