LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah criticised the government for resorting to politics of vendetta and said the courts are being stopped from providing justice to opposition leaders.
Rana Sanaullah appeared before a court but could not be indicted in the drugs smuggling case as the presiding judge was on leave.
Speaking to media, the PML-stalwart claimed the families of judges who hear cases against opposition parties are monitored. “Courts are being stopped from dispensing justice in this victimisation of opposition leaders,” he said.
He strongly criticised the accountability process in the country and alleged the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was being held hostage by the government.
He said this is creating this environment of fear and pushing the country towards anarchy and chaos. The PML-N leader said that the law and order situation in the country was a “total failure”.
Sanaullah accused the prime minister of following double standards on dual nationals when it was revealed that his advisers and assistants possessed foreign nationality. He said the entire nation was witnessing how the government was focused on the politics of vendetta.
Rana Sanaullah was arrested by Anti-Narcotics Force officials on 1st July last year in Lahore. ANF had claimed to have recovered 15 kilogramme of heroin from his vehicle. He was granted bail on 24th December by the Lahore High Court.
