LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan today (Saturday) lashed out at the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN), stating that the incumbent government has failed and its members are corrupt, Dunya News reported.

Speaking to media in Lahore, Aitzaz said that current rulers are finding different excuses to evade accountability in corruption cases.

The PMLN-led government has totally failed, he said adding that an anti-government movement will be launched at any cost.

To a question regarding Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar’s remarks in yesterday’s press conference, Aitzaz Ahsan said that he doesn’t take Nisar’s statement too serious.

One must be very fool to make a request to Ch Nisar in favour of Dr Asim and Ayyan Ali, he stated.

The PPP leader further alleged that the rulers are acting as ‘commission agents’ as they deduct their commission from amount spent on every project.

These remarks by Aitzaz Ahsan came a day after Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar took a dig at PPP and questioned what was the relation of PPP and model Ayyan Ali who was facing money laundering charges.

He recalled, “One responsible person came to me and offered reconciliation with PPP if Ayyan Ali is released and Dr Asim Hussain is bailed out, which is not possible for me as a honest person.”

Nisar said some leaders of PPP had made a nexus against him and they leveled false allegations against him which was not appropriate.

He said the practice of leveling false allegations against him should be stopped and proposed to have a debate  in presence of renowned journalists, or they can set up a Commission with representations of credible retired judges and or they can approach Supreme Court.
