Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Monday said that he was ready to appear before the Supreme Court and produce documentary evidences with regard to Mehran Bank scandal.
He said that the opposition continued to entangle PPP ministers in different cases; our ministers were to render a lot of responsibilities but opposition tried their best to trap them in baseless cases. Now time has come for the opposition parties to face the challenge, he said.
He said that he has collected the main documents from the bank record which would be submitted to the court in due course of time.
"We have all the documentary record of transactions which Yunus Habib gave to political figures" Malik disclosed.
"I will present the evidences in Mehran Back scam if the court summoned me." Malik added.
He said that action must be taken against those violating the law of the land. He said the PPP government has not show any animosity towards PML-N as the case was not opened on the request of the government.
Rehman Malik invited militant groups including the Taliban for peace talks and said banned organisations would be delisted if they "closed down their militant wings".
"If the proscribed organisations assure us that they have closed down their militant wings and abandoned extremism, then we would like to meet them in next few days," Interior Minister said while answering questions.
"We have been contacted by several banned organisations that want to sit and talk. If they want to give up militancy we will talk to them as we are revising the list of proscribed organisations," Malik said. He did not identify any group but said that the government had "even offered the Taliban to give up militancy and join the federation".
