ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Sunday continued launching tirade against Sharif brothers by accusing them of ‘robbing’ country banks of over six billion rupees, SAMAA reports.
“To unearth the looted money I will present all documental evidences against Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif in courts. The nation has a right to know the truth, it could not be hoodwinked,” Malik said while speaking at a news conference at his resident here in the federal capital.
With escalated war of words, PPP quarters unleashed accusation against Sharifs after PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif asked Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani to step down following a conviction by the Supreme Court and threatened to use all options to send the government packing if the demand was not met.
Gilani faced the conviction in contempt of court case for not ordering reopening of multi-million-dollar corruption cases against President Zardari.
Malik on Sunday almost repeated the allegations he leveled on Saturday while speaking to media with a pile of files lying in front of him
“I have proofs of all misappropriations and robbing and will public them next week,” Malik claimed, adding that he might appear in the court if it summoned him.
Malik claimed that London high court had declared Shahbaz Sharif a ‘defaulter’. He further added that Sharif brothers held meetings with officials of secret agencies during their exile period.
He threatened that PPP jiyalas would march against PML-N if they continued confronting with the ruling party. “We are not wearing bangles. PPP jiyalas from all over Pakistan will march to Riawind against Sharif brothers.”
About PPP’s relations with Imran Khan’s Tehrik-e-Insaf, who also called for Gilani’s resignation, Malik said “we have no conflict with PTI.” -- SAMAA
