Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid has dismissed rumours of Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar getting the boot, saying he wasn’t going anywhere.
Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Rashid said Buzdar, who is at the center of a storm after allegations surfaced of the Punjab chief minister using his influence to award a liquor license to a private hotel in Lahore, still has the PM's support.
“For now, details have been summoned from Usman Buzdar, there is no allegation against him,” Rashid said.
Earlier this week Buzdar was summoned by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) regarding the issuance of a liquor license. The Punjab chief minister has been directed by the Bureau to submit his response by August 18 in the case.
Talking about PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz, he said that the "group of stone-pelters was called from all across Pakistan".
While slamming JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Rashid said that he was in pursuit of an NRO.
"The opposition is not running any movement, thus Imran Khan will complete his five years," he said.
