Federal Information Minister, Firdos Ashiq Awan Saturday said that the political personalities which have been unveiled in Asghar Ali Khan case should present themselves before the apex court.
She said that the forces that had played role in making governments in the country as per their personal interests had been exposed in the Supreme Court during Asghar Ali Khan case.
“Younus Habib has been making important revelation in the court, and those who had been kingmakers in the past are exposed,” Awan said while speaking to media representatives here at Lahore’s Expo Center.
Criticized PML-N leader Mian Shahbaz Sharif she said that the Asghar Ali Khan case has proven that these leaders were acted as puppets of establishment and People party’s mandate had been overruled in the past with national treasure by these elements.
“Those who looted national exchequer will be exposed,” Awan asserted.
“Every state institution should follow constitution and work within its domain,” Awan said, expressing hope that the present PPP-led government would complete its 5-year term. “PPP wants to live in the history not in headlines”.
Referring to cases against President Asif Ali Zardari, Awan claimed that the cases “were fabricated” in the past.
The SC on Friday heard a 15-year old case in which former banker, Younus Habib, revealed that he doled out Rs. 1.5 million in bank funds to politicians and ISI officers on the orders of then army chief Gen. Aslam Beg and President Ghulam Ishaq Khan, who was considered close to the army, to influence 1990 elections, preventing PPP success.
