No relief in accountability process, says Governor Sarwar


LAHORE: Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said on Tuesday that injustice will not be done with anyone and contravention of law and order will not happen either, adding that there is no concept of relief in the accountability process.

“Each and every clause of the JIT report will be implemented in letter and spirit. [The] government is not doing politically motivated victimisation with anyone,” the governor said while addressing while meeting Federal Parliamentary Secretary Farrukh Habib and Provincial Assembly Members Mian Waris Aziz, Khayal Ahmad Kastro and others.
