LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah stated that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) apprehended Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Dr Asim Hussain in corruption cases. While talking to journalists outside the Punjab Assembly, Rana Sanaullah said that Asif Ali Zardari has always talked about politics of reconciliation but sometimes he gets emotional. He said that earlier, Zardari gave statements against the armed forces and now he is mourning over Dr. Asim’s detention.

The Law Minister added that NAB is responsible for the investigation against the PPP leader and that it is unfortunate if the arrest was made to take revenge. Responding to a question, the provincial leader lauded the Pakistan Army and requested the parties to stand united for the success of the ongoing anti-terrorism operations. Reacting over Zardari’s statement, Rana Sanaullah stated that Rana Mashood was declared innocent in Rehman Malik’s investigation.
