Sh Rasheed said he had predicted action in December | Instant News

KARACHI: The Minister of Railways, Shaikh Rasheed Ahmad, has said he had indicated that in December, broad action would be taken against ‘those elements’.

The federal minister responded to questions about the indictment of former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur by an accountability court earlier in the day at a press conference on Monday.

Regarding Nawaz, he said that the former prime minister had eliminated the legal options available to him to return to Pakistan. He alleged that Sharif had projected an Indian narrative against the Pakistani Army. “He (Nawaz Sharif) used to say that he was not fighting Imran Khan because of his fight against other people,” he said. “I fail to understand why maybe the people protected by General Ziaul Haq would turn against the army,” he said.

Responding to the PPP chairman’s statement that he would not attend the briefing where Shaykh Rasyid was also present, the railway minister said he did not know why the PPP chairman was so afraid of him, but the chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party must be careful. its status as MNA. “I am of the view that Bilawal Bhutto has the potential to play a positive role in Pakistani politics,” he said. “There is no more damage in my statement,” he stressed

Sheikh Rasheed said he would hold a public meeting at the same venue wherever the opposition holds a public meeting after the All Parties Conference. “Time has passed now when the attendance of just 5,000 people in public gatherings is being exaggerated to project attendance of up to 50,000 people,” he said. He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan was steadfast because he (PM) had decided to prosecute corrupt politicians in a constitutional and legal perspective.

He said that soon all encroachment would be removed from the rail area and added that a map of the railroad fields relating to the British colonial era would be released in the next 15 days to show encroachment on federal land. He said the KCR project would be revived in collaboration with the chief minister of Sindh. “If he (CM) is interested in running the KCR, we will submit it,” he said.

NAB reopened the case against Nisar Khuhro, minister of Taimur Talpur | Instant News

KARACHI: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has reopened two cases of alleged corruption by the leader of the Pakistan People’s Party, Nisar Khuhro, president of the Sindh party chapter, and adviser to the Chief Minister of Sindh, and Nawab Taimur Talpur, minister of Sindh province.

NAB Sukkur has summoned Nisar Khuhro on Wednesday (today) in an investigation into alleged corruption in the Sindh Food Department. Likewise, the revenue authority of the Umerkot district, the home district of the provincial minister of Talpur, has also been summoned on Wednesday in six complaints of counterfeiting of land against Minister Taimur Talpur with the Karachi NAB.

On the other hand, the Sindh Food Department has decided to send a Rs10 billion mega wheat scandal to NAB for further investigation.

According to a food department source, large amounts of Rs10 billion worth of Sindh government wheat, which were stored when it descended from 15 different districts in the province, were lost. After the initial investigation, the food department, under the direction of the competent authority, has officially asked NAB to conduct a comprehensive investigation.

According to the NAB correspondence, a copy available with The News, Provincial Minister Nawab Taimur Talpur has been summoned on alleged forgery in the land record in his favor and other family members with the collaboration of the Umerkot district revenue officer, in addition to the alleged corruption being the work of developing the Sindh Education Work Department, Public Health and others.

Karachi NAB Deputy Director Syeda Rumla Naqvi has written a letter to the Deputy Commissioner of the Umerkot District to provide a note to Minister Nawab Taimur Talpur in the case of asset acquisition outside a known source of income.

The accusation against the minister was based on complaints from Mola Bux and several others who had filed serious allegations of corruption. Minister Nawab Taimur Talpur told The News that all NAB charges were false and his investigation would not find fault with him like a previous investigation similar to that of several years ago by the Karachi NAB, which he also challenged in the Sindh High Court. Talpur said that four months ago, the NAB submitted a written statement at the desk of the Sindh High Court division, led by Sindh High Court Chief Justice Ahmed Ali Sheikh, acquitted him of all charges and declared him innocent in all questions but now they were once again submitting notifications another, which clearly proves NAB’s political victimization and bad intentions. He said he would challenge him in court.
