Shehbaz Sharif disappointed over seizing political opponents’ houses


LONDON: Shehbaz Sharif, president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), strongly condemned provincial government’s step of turning former finance minister Ishaq Dar’s Lahore residence into shelter home.

In a statement, opposition leaders from the National Assembly (NA) expressed disappointment about the seizure of houses of political opponents and called it a false tradition.

He added that people lacked basic services, including food and employment, but government leaders were engaged in political revenge by the opposition rather than resolving ethnic issues.

On the other hand, after hearing a petition against the conversion of Dar’s home into a hiding place, the Lahore High Court (LHC) had issued a house ban and requested a response from the provincial government within ten days.

In response, the plaintiffs took the position that the leaders of the Pakistani Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had been the victim of political retaliation.

He added that the Punjab government illegally converted the house into a hiding place because the Islamabad High Court (IHC) issued a residence order for the auction of Dar’s houses.

The claimant also declares that the provincial government has violated a court order.
