Sanaullah tells PTI to man up to criticism


Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), which criticises others, should have courage to face the response. Talking to journalists at the Punjab Assembly on Wednesday, he said that the use of word “drama” for the PTI protest to stop the NATO supplies was not non-parliamentary. He criticized the PTI for holding protest to summon Punjab Assembly session and then boycotting the proceedings using different tactics. The Punjab law minister said that with the retirement or resignation of any official, dignity of any institution was not lost and the Supreme Court (SC) will have same esteem it had. Sanaullah said that action should be taken against the officials who were held responsible in Rawalpindi carnage by the Facts Finding Committee (FFC) in accordance with the rules. Sanaullah said that National Database Registration Authority (NADRA) Chairman Tariq Malik has close relations with officials of former PPP-led government and his removal was the constitutional right of federal government but still it accepted the court decision and reinstated him. However, government will present its view point regarding sacking of Malik from its position.
