OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE - The PPP wants formation of a judicial commission to probe the alleged corruption by Sharifs, and has also sent a letter to Interior Minister Rehman Malik to do the needful. The demand came from Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Raja Riaz, who, at a news conference on Wednesday, told the reporters that corruption was prevalent in Punjab government right from the office of patwari to the Chief Ministers Secretariat, and chief executive of the province had failed to control it. He was accompanied by Deputy Opposition Leader Mr Shaukat Mehmood Basra. The opposition leader alleged that financial irregularities and corruption had been committed in seven major projects including Sasti Roti Scheme, Aashiyana Housing Scheme, Yellow Cab Scheme, Food Stamp Scheme, and purchase of insecticide for dengue etc. He added that award of contracts to favourites in these projects was another scam. The PPP leader said he had written a letter to Interior Minister Rehman Malik to form a judicial commission to probe corruption by Punjab government. He further said that he would approach the court if judicial commission is not formed for the purpose. Raja was of the view that he had no objection against the Aashiyana Housing Scheme, but it should be made corruption-free by ensuring transparency at every level. He said that Mian brothers through their so-called mass movement campaign were in fact trying to dislodge the democratic government by providing an opportunity to undemocratic forces to grab power. He said Shahbaz Sharif had ignored the casualties taking place in DG Khan and Faisalabad because of malaria and hepatitis while announcing Rs 0.5 million financial assistance for the bereaved families of those dying of dengue in Lahore. He said this was an ample proof that the chief ministers thinking was confined only to Lahore. We previously thought that PML-N is a party confined to GT Road, but now have come to the conclusion that it is limited only to Lahore, he said. Alluding to the PML-N, he said those demanding of general elections should hold local elections first. The opposition leader appealed to the Supreme Court to start hearing the dual membership case against chief minister Punjab and corruption cases of Sharifs pending with the court since long.
