ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Thursday continued his media jibe against Sharif Brothers, reiterating that they should be held accountable for ‘looting’ millions of rupees from Pakistani banks, SAMAA reports.
“I have never said that Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif have written off their loans but they looted the nation’s money and I have proofs of it,” Malik repeated his allegations during a brief media chat outside National Assembly ahead of joining the session.
“They should be accountable for this corruption, and I request Chief Justice of Pakistan to take suo moto notice of 32 million dollar scam,” he said.
About PML-N’s threat of long march for unseating PM Gilani, Malik said “we will see it if they are really capable of staging such a long march.”
He criticized Nawaz for courting colleagues of former President Pervez Musharraf. “It seems that Nawaz is inspired by Musharraf’s vision and therefore courting his aides like Marvi Memon and Amir Muqam.
To a query about contempt of court investigation, he said an office had been appointed to probe into the matter.
Replying to a question, Malik warned ‘gangsters’ of Lyari fighting with law-enforcers in Karachi. “I once again warn those criminals that stop throwing grenades on police, your days are numbered.”
He claimed that situation in Lyari would be calmed down in couple of days, adding that he goes to Karachi only after President Zardari directs him. “I will go to Lyari and watch the situation. There will be peace in few days.” -- SAMAA
