LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah rejected allegations leveled by Punjab Governor Salman Taseer against the provincial government while addressing a press conference in Lahore on Wednesday.
Sanaullah said that the Punjab chief minister only uses two bullet proof vehicles and the Punjab government uses 11 bullet proof vehicles.
He stated that the current expenditure budget of Punjab is Rs 315 billion and the budget for the Sasti Roti scheme is only Rs 7 billion.
He challenged the Punjab Governor to prove that the figures presented by him are wrong and demanded that the governor resign if his allegations are proven wrong.
Governor House responds
The Governor House lashed out at Sanaullah's statements, and demanded the provincial government terminate Sanaullah from his post.
In a statement, the Governor House said Rana Sanaullah is an unqualified person and stated that he himself acknowledged that the chief minister has five camp offices with expenditures in millions.
The statement said hundreds of elite force personnel have also been deployed for the security of Shahbaz Sharif and his relatives.
The statement claims that the Punjab government has acknowledged all the allegations leveled by the Punjab Governor.
