Provincial law minister Rana Sanaullah Monday said that Imran Khan had lost his senses due to the unsuccessful public meeting in Rawalpindi and the leveling of accusations against the Punjab government was a result of this mental condition.
In a statement issued here, Rana Sana said that there was authentic information that the leadership of PPP had had prepared these baseless allegations against the Punjab government in the Federal Information Department and handed them (allegations) over to Imran Khan for reading at a press conference. He said Imran Khan had made the PTI a defence line of the PPP otherwise he would not have made futile efforts of mudslinging against the excellent record of the Punjab government regarding transparency, good governance and public welfare projects as compared with other provinces of the country. Sana asked Khan to see the reality on the basis of facts and figures being presented by him. He said that Khan had criticized the project of public transport in Punjab but those travelling in the chartered planes had no interest in the transport problems of the people. He said that metro bus system comprised of nine packages, out of which eight packages were awarded through open tenders while one package had been given to NLC – keeping in view the demands of complete transparency.
He said that they would not allow Imran Khan to flee and he would have to give proof of allegations leveled against these contracts, otherwise he would have to quit politics. Contrary to the allegations of Imran Khan, designing and feasibility of metro bus project had been prepared at most professional level and the assistance of the designers of internationally recognized brotherly country Turkey was also sought, he said. Her termed Imran’s claim a lie that 73 billion rupees had been spent on this project. In fact, he added, a total cost of the project was Rs.26 billion.
The Sindh government was constructing circular transport in Karachi at a cost of Rs.225 billion but Imran Khan criticizes only public welfare projects of the Punjab government, he said and added not a single penny of health or education sector was spent on the project.
As far as the law and order situation was concerned, Rana Sana said, one wondered why Imran Khan remained silent over the target killing and massacre of innocent Pakistanis in Sindh, Balochistan and other parts of the country. He targeted Punjab (government) only which clearly showed whose language he was using, he said. According to the facts and figures, he claimed, the number of crimes – including theft, kidnapping for ransom and dacoity – had reduced considerably when compared with the crime rate last year.
