The Pak Banker - - 2national -

LA­HORE: Pak­istan Peo­ples Party (PPP) Pun­jab Pres­i­dent Im­tiaz Saf­dar War­raich has said the Pun­jab govern­ment is guilty of worst cor­rup­tion by sell­ing govern­ment land to party work­ers at low prices.

He said this while ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence here at the La­hore Press Club on Tues­day.

Sami­ul­lah Khan, Ma­lik Hafeez, Dr Fakhrud­din Chaudhry, Au­rangzeb Barki and other PPP lead­ers were also present on the oc­ca­sion.

Im­tiaz Saf­dar War­raich said the pro­vin­cial govern­ment was not even re­luc­tant to sell col­leges and an advertisement cam­paign was also be­ing run on the me­dia which was the worst ex­am­ple of cor­rup­tion.

"Work­ers of the Pak­istan Mus­lim League-Nawaz (PMLN) are be­ing ap­pointed as ad­min­is­tra­tors of mar­ket com­mit­tees and lo­cal bod­ies. The Pun­jab govern­ment has opened new ways of cor­rup­tion," he said. He said all di­vi­sional in­for­ma­tion sec­re­taries of the PPP Pun­jab had expressed their con­cern over the steps of the Pun­jab govern­ment and the PPP de­cided to raise the is­sues at par­lia­ment.

The PPP Pun­jab pres­i­dent an­nounced a mass con­tact cam­paign and said PPP Pun­jab worker con­ven­tions would be held at all eight di­vi­sional head­quar­ters of the party with the first in DG Khan. He said all in­for­ma­tion sec­re­taries of the PPP had also been given a task to re­or­gan­ise the party. He said that the PPP would con­tinue its rec­on­cil­i­a­tion pol­icy but not ac­cept any anti-demo­cratic step by any party. -App
