Aleem seeking no relief in prison like convicted PML-N leadership

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vowda said Aleem Khan was not seeking any privilege or relief as compared to PML-N leadership who was having a lavish life style in the prison too.

Talking to a private news channel, he said Nawaz Sharif was demanding extraordinary medical treatment on the pretext of being a former prime minister of the country.

The minister pointed out that Nawaz had been convicted by the court of law, even then, he was being provided all kind of medical and other basic facilities in the jail.

He said the government swallowed a bitter pill in the shape of Public Accounts Committee's chairmanship for smooth functioning of the Parliament.

He said the government wanted to make legislation on public issues but opposition did not seem serious in this regard.

The minister held responsible PML-N previous government for creating financial crisis in the country and distorting state institutions functioning for their vested interests.

He said opposition was using all possible tactics to pressurize government and law enforcing institutions to stop ongoing accountability process against its leadership.

To a query about NAB law, he said there was a dire need to bring some amendments in it to make it more effective and vibrant. For this purpose, the Parliament would play its role soon.
