ISLAMABAD – PML-Nawaz leader Chaudhry Nisar said on Monday the government had sold an island worth billions of rupees near Karachi and he would bring a lawsuit against it.
Interacting with the media outside Parliament, Nisar said he knew it very well that to whom the island had been sold and soon he would knock the court’s door to raise the issue.
The top PML-N leader said business tycoon “Malik Riaz was posing as if he was going to change the fate of this country by advertising his plan to develop a new big city near Karachi and construction of world’s largest building”. “There is a question mark on the funding,” he argued, and said $45 billion was a big amount and a worthy one to be worried that where it was coming from.
“At present the project is in proposal stage but Malik Riaz is advertising as it is in commencement phase,” Nisar said as he mentioned the name of Abu Dhabi Group chairman Shaikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan.
He also pointed to his leader’s silence on President Zardari’s palace in Lahore, and complained that he being the opposition leader in the National Assembly was continuously speaking on the issue. He said that institutions must not keep quite on this gifted palace to the president from a business magnet.
About Saturday’s Quetta bombing, the PML-N leader said the whole nation was asking the leaders that how come such a sad incident took place. He blamed the agencies and state institutions for the incident, stating it was a failure on their part to check recurrence of terrorist attacks. He also questioned what made the government impose Governor’s Rule in Balochistan. It happened second time and all law-enforcement agencies had failed to stem the menace of terrorism.
