The PML-N has announced it will approach the court over the government’s “actions in Punjab”.
A press conference was held in Lahore on Sunday by party members Saad Rafique, Sardar Ayaz Sadiq and Ataullah Tarar to protest the Punjab government’s recent actions, in particular the razing of the Khokhar brothers’ residence by the Lahore Development Authority over what the government has characterised as “illegal occupation of government land”.
Khawaja Saad Rafique said that action must be taken against the police chief who took the action.
He said that as the opinion polls approach, the government is “trying to scare off the opposition.”
Rafique said that to that end, the office of an “approved scheme” in Sialkot was demolished.
The PML-N leader said that “lists were being prepared” and the government was “targeting” the party’s leaders in particular and adding their names to those that must be probed for corruption.
“This idea of corruption will no longer sell,” he said, adding that “whoever commits acts of oppression will meet a befitting fate”.
