LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah Tuesday said that Sindh Higher Education Commission Chairman Dr. Asim Hussain is facing charge of providing financial assistance to terrorists.
Talking to media here, Sanaullah said there is a need to eliminate corruption in order to root out terrorism in the country.
He said that Dr. Asim is a trustful aide of Pakistan People’s Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari.
“Zardari is grieved over arrest of Dr. Asim Hussain,” the minister added.
It is pertinent to mention here that the PPP co-chairman launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for what he described as “repeating the politics of 1990’s.”
He said that first Qasim Zia and son of Senator Bangash were arrested and now Dr Asim has been arrested. Immediately after that warrants for arrest for the former Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani and Makhdoom Amin Fahim who is ill has also been issued.
Bureaucrats in Sindh are being harassed by the FIA and NAB. The Chief Secretary of Sindh is on bail. All this unmistakably presents a clear pattern of political harassment and revenge, he said By doing so Sindh has been immobilized, under the direct orders from the Prime Minister House.
