Opponents failed to produce evidence of money laundering: Abid Sher Ali


ISLAMABAD, July 02 (TNS): Minister of State for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali has said that conspiracies against PML-N leadership have failed earlier and would still be unsuccessful.

Talking to media here on Sunday, Abid Sher Ali said that they would not run away anywhere, adding there is no evidence of corruption against them and serving of nation is the top priority of the government.

The Minister said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will continue his efforts for a developed Pakistan despite hurdles by his opponents.

He asked Supreme Court of Pakistan to take notice of statements of opposition regarding investigation of Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing Panama case. “The PML-N has reservation on such statements like a spokesperson of JIT,” he added.

Abid Sher Ali said, “The PML-N respects national institutions and expects fair, transparent and merit based investigation by the six-man panel, adding that the opponents have completely failed to produce sufficient evidence and documentary proof against corruption and money laundering.”

He said that the negative politics of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman is a threat for country’s politics, adding that Imran Khan has been declared as absconder by the courts.

The Minister advised PTI chairman Imran Khan to follow footsteps of the prime minister and appear before the courts for accountability of allegations leveled against him.
