Prisons ultimate fate of corrupt elements: Ch Sarwar


LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf core committee member and former Governor Punjab Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar on Thursday said that patronage of corrupt people has now reached “the end”.

Addressing the party workers in his office, the former governor said that prisons are the ultimate fate of the corrupt, and we must set an example out of such people. History and the nation will never forgive those who abuse national institutions.

If rulers are clean and clear, they should present themselves before institutions instead of threatening them. Strict measures should be taken against the people who have caused a loss of more than 5 billion rupees to the national exchequer by buying expensive electricity.

Sarwar said the politics of corrupt people have ended, and they cannot become successful in politics anymore. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf stands for democracy, but accountability is the linchpin of democracy, he added. Sarwar also said that the rulers have weakened the parliament by ignoring the role of parliament in ensuring good governance and critical decision making.
