Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Talal Chaudhry while responding to responded to State Minister for Narcotics Control Shehryar Afridi’s presser over Rana Sanaullah’s legal proceedings, said that the minister has taken a u-turn by saying that he had “spoken of a footage and not a video”.
“Shehryar Afridi has become a ‘u-turn Niazi’ […] he should apologise to the nation as neither evidence nor video is available [to him],” the PML-N leader said, while asking Mr Afridi to resign for speaking a lie.
“The nation has seen that Rana Sanaullah was kept imprisoned for seven months on the basis of a lie,” he said, adding that he could see no sign of humiliation, shame and regret on the face of the minister, instead continued arrogance. “The nation was waiting for Shehryar Afridi to present the video to today.”
PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said “The selected government is about to be toppled,” she said and added those swearing allegations against Rana Sanaullah should resign.” “The former prime minister made the country an atomic power and laid the network of motorways and brought the country out of darkness and gave the gift of CPEC which has been closed down today,” she said.
Earlier, Shehryar Afridi on Wednesday defended his viewpoint over Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah’s legal proceedings , said that “no interference or political victimisation” in the case.
“Neither I nor Prime Minister Imran Khan had arrested Rana Sanaullah,” Mr Afridi remarked during a press conference a day after Mr Sanaullah got bail. “Sanaullah has been granted bail, not acquitted, the case is still in courts,” he said, adding that the ANF was a professional force.
“Did the prime minister arrest him (Sanaullah)? Did I? […] certainly not,” he said, adding: “We did not interfere in his legal proceedings, there is no victimisation at any level.
“Time will prove this. This is the season of bails,” Afridi stated, adding: “Remember that the ANF is a professional force […] we need to strengthen institutions, Shehryar will come and go, rulers will come and go, the real thing is the institutions of Pakistan.”
