RE - PML-N leadership needs no clearance certificate as State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) list regarding bank loan written-off list contains the name of Pervaiz Elahi and not Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif, says Pervaiz Rasheed, senior leader of PML-N.
He expressed these views while talking to The Nation on Sunday regarding the statement of PML-Q leader Pervaiz Elahi who had urged Sharifs to clear their position before the masses regarding bank loans and if the PML-N top leadership failed to do so in a week, PML-Q would reveal the details of Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif about their loans got written-off.
Rasheed said Pervaiz Elahi name was in SBP list and he should get his own name cleared from that list before confronting the media and masses and PML-N would continue asking them to return 3 billion rupees that belonged to the people of Pakistan.
He said Ch Pervaiz has no right to give PML-N leadership deadlines as it was Pervaiz Elahi whose name was in SBP list and not Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif.
He said that Pervaiz Elahi under the umbrella of Pervez Musharraf ruled the country for ten years and tried his best to level charges of all kinds on Nawaz Sharif but they framed him in a fake hijacking case.
Pervaiz Rasheed said on the advice of party leadership, Nawaz Sharif left all his business concerns after being elected as Prime Minister in 1992 and he heads no business concern since that time.
Commenting on the burning of the record of loan beneficiaries list of 1985 to 1999, he said that fire incident took place in the regime of Ch Pervaiz Elahi and he might have used that incident to cover up some corrupt practices.
About Pervaiz Elahis Robert Farm claim, he said that PML-N has presented a registry in this regard that has been duly registered with the Punjab Revenue Department and Elahi should go to the court instead of making frivolous claims.
Sardar Zulfikar Ali Khosa, another senior leader of PML-N commenting on the statement of Pervaiz Elahi said that the PML-Q leader who was the key man of Pervez Musharraf in Punjab tried his level best to involve Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif in cases of financial irregularities but he could not do anything even with all powerful NAB on his side as both the Sharifs never indulged themselves in any such practices. He said that all cases against Pervaiz Elahis financial corruption were framed in Musharrafs regime and when he joined hands with the dictator the NAB stopped probing against him.
