Imran Khan Lauds Sugar Inquiry Commission Chief Wajid Zia For Good Report

ISLAMABAD: (Web Desk) – Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan lauded Sugar Inquiry Commission chief Wajid Zia for preparing a good report.

According to the inside story of the federal cabinet’s special meeting, the prime minister also appreciated the cabinet members for uniting in the war against corruption.

Lauding Wajid Zia for preparing an unambiguous report, the prime minister reiterated his stance that he would not spare any mafia. “I have been struggling against such mafias for the last two decades. I will not bow before these mafias at all costs. After assuming the power, I came to know how much mafias are active in the country,” he said.

Prime Minister Imran Khan declared that he would not pardon a culprit no matter how much he is near to him. “I will make the decision as per law. I know the mafia is very strong. The country was looted mercilessly. I will expose other mafias as well,” he resolved.

He said: “I am glad that the entire cabinet is with me in the war against corruption. I am doing the work which is better for the people.”

To the harsh questions put by Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan, Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry, Minister for Communication Murad Saeed and Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari as why the subsidy and export were approved, the prime minister said that the country’s economic affairs were in difficulty. “It was our compulsion to export sugar,” he said.

About a question regarding Minister for Economic Affairs Khusru Bakhtiar, Imran Khan said that Khusru and his brother have no role in the scandal.

Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari asked why the sugar mills owned by Mian Munir and Haroon Akhtar are being mentioned in the scandal.

Minister for Communication Murad Saeed said that they would definitely be questioned about the subsidy issue.

Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry also questioned the decisions taken by the Economic Coordination Committee.

However, Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak did not express his views on the Sugar Inquiry Commission report.

Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood, Adviser to Prime Minister on Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan and others congratulated the prime minister on the report. However, Minister for Planning, Development and Reform Asad Umar, Minister for Housing and Works Tariq Bashir Cheema, Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda and other ministers remained absent from the meeting.
