Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon lashed out at the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, questioning its chief on his approval for an army operation and imposition of governor’s rule in Sindh.
He added that whenever a ‘Peoples’ Party comes into power, terrorists are set free to bring a bad name to the government, and create the impression of failure.
Addressing the closing ceremony of 19th Chief Minister Memorial Inter-School Boys and Girls Table Tennis Tournament and later speaking to the media at the Nasira School, Memon said Nawaz was the one who laid the foundations of corruption in Pakistan.
He added that the terrorists have been given a free hand, only politicians are being subjected to accountability.
Thousands of terrorists were arrested during the last four years and nine months but were released by the courts, Memon claimed, adding that only the Pakistan Peoples Party leadership was being held accountable. “Why is it that only the Swiss case was singled out of 8,000 NRO cases?” he asked.
