Responding to a question about registration of FIR against the PPP leaders and the workers, Rana Sanaullah categorically overruled any political motive behind that, and said the FIR was registered not for burning the effigies of PML (N) Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif but for setting on fire copies of the Supreme Courts stay orders on the judges appointments. He said effigies were also burnt in other districts but from nowhere other than Lahore, the matter was reported to the police on February 14 last in respect of torching the copies of the SC orders. He said he was not in favour of action against the politicians, however the investigations on the FIR in question were going on and the authority of law would be maintained therein.

He said those activists of these organizations who raised arms were being chased and dealt with according to the law. He said a person who belongs to any of the said organizations but not involved in any nefarious activity had every right to exercise his right to franchise in the election. He posed query to the political rivals that why they themselves approached the SSP for support if they had any other view about these organizations. The Minister also asked outlaws of the said organizations to lay down their arms and play a role in the mainstream. To a question on the alleged warrants of arrest of two PML (N) MPAs, he explained that the Court did not issue their arrest warrants except directing the police to probe the matter according to the law.
