KARACHI: Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon said on Saturday that close allies of dictators are joining Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and the Sharif brothers are the ‘kings of corruption’ in the country. 
He said that the audit report for the year 2008-9 showed that Rs8.5 billion were misappropriated by the Punjab government. “The scale of corruption during the tenures of Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif is unprecedented – they break all previous records.” He also pointed to the confession made by Ishaque Dar, a senior leader from Sharif’s party, who said that Nawaz had ordered money laundering. Memon added that National Accountability Bureau has started re-opening the cases against politicians and it is obvious that most of them would be against the Sharif brothers.
Memon also said that the Punjab government has totally failed to control law and order situation in the province. “Around 10,000 people have been kidnapped in Punjab for last one year now.”
He was also of the view that no one had the right to criticise the Pakistan Peoples Party leadership. Memon refuted all the claims that Nawaz Sharif made at a press conference on Saturday in London. “Nawaz Sharif is speaking about the murder of Hakim Saeed by alleging that workers of a political party in Karachi are involved, but I want to ask him what progress his government has made in the kidnapping case of Shahbaz Taseer,” he said.

He asked if the Sharif brothers were not guilty then why did they feel the need to apologise to former dictator General Pervez Musharraf and then flee the country?
Regarding the performance of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Memon said, “How can the people of Punjab expect positive things from a man who holds the portfolios of 16 different ministries?”

He also said that President Zardari has immunity and every prime minister from his party will follow the law by not writing to the Swiss Courts.

Memon said that the people who had made the constitution of Pakistan know how to defend it and are fully aware of its spirit. “No other party but Pakistan Peoples Party will bring change in the country,” he said. “We will not accept the double standard meted out to our party and leadership apparently because law is equal for everyone.”

It is in no way possible that Nawaz Sharf was not involved in corruption. We just need to compare earnings rate of their businesses vs. that of competitors and industry growth rates to ascertain that the funds they funneled outside the country in no way came through legitimate means. Some foreign authors have done a great job in providing money trail of these funds. I just want to know that either Sharif brothers are running an empire or they have “Qaroon ka Khazana”. The annual increase in their incomes mounts to billions and trillions, from where they have got so much. Their father had started only a single steel mill now they have tens of such factories. Can you quote a single example of such a business man that made such leaps and bounds progress like Mian brothers. Infact they have looted and plundered national wealth and they must be hold accountable for this..
