Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed submitted on Thursday a plea with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
"PM Abbasi has not remained Sadiq and Ameen as he, among others, signed an agreement to buy Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) which involved irregularities of up to Rs200billion," Rasheed stated in his plea, according to Express News.
The agreement, in addition to several business tycoons, included former PM Nawaz Sharif, Punjab CM Shahbaz Sharif and Ishaq Dar, whom, Rasheed said, have been named in the plea.
