Shah sees ill-intent behind sugar inquiry report

–Sindh information minister says CM Murad’s name had been ‘deliberately added’ to the report

KARACHI: Sindh Information Minister Syed Nasir Hussain Shah on Friday said that the name of Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah had been included in the investigation report of sugar scam on the basis of hostility.

He said that the period in which the inquiry into the sugar scam was ordered was related to Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, adding that, the report did not say much about the Punjab CM.

Shah said that the investigation into the sugar scam related to the tenure of Sindh CM Murad had already been carried out.

The minister said that the emission of Punjab CM’s name exposed the real objectives of the report.

He said that many people sitting in the federal cabinet had been clearly saved in this investigation report.

Shah said that he had no sympathy with Jahangir Tareen nor did he belong to his party, but it seemed that there were differences in the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Tareen had been made the victim of it.

Shah further said that Omni Group was a very old business entity, and had been engaged in business activities for a long time, adding that, it was inappropriate to associate it with the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).

He further said that the PPP was a political party and it was inappropriate to associate it with any business entity.

He said that the attempt to involve the Sindh CM in the investigation into the sugar scam, and the attempt to save Punjab CM showed that all these reports and investigations were based on malice.

Shah expressed deep grief and sorrow over the loss of precious lives as a result of the crash of a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane in Karachi.

He said he was deeply saddened by the tragic incident and offered condolences to the families of the victims on behalf of the Sindh government. He prayed to God to grant all the deceased a place in His mercy.
