Govt to file case against Rana Sanaullah under Anti-Terrorism Act

RAWALPINDI: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Saturday announced registering a case under the Anti-Terrorism Act against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah for threatening Punjab chief secretary and other bureaucrats.

Addressing a press conference, Chaudhry said the language Sanaullah used was the same Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder would use during his heyday.

Fawad also made it clear that the government had no plan to demolish the Sharif family’s Jati Umra residence. He alleged that the Sharif family had built their palace at Jati Umra on state-owned land.

Talking about the law and order situation developed following protests and rioting by the activists of a religious party a few days back, Fawad claimed the government had managed to control the situation in a commendable manner. “Now the situation is under control,” he added.

Chaudhry accused India of fomenting sectarian hatred in Pakistan. He said categorically that Pakistan was not a weak state. “Pakistan is amongst the world’s seven nuclear powers,” he said.

Last day, Rana Sanaullah while addressing a press conference said “You (bureaucrats) will stay here and so will your children.”

Punjab former law minister asked provincial bureaucrats “Don’t obey the government orders just for the sake of promotions,” adding that “By complying with the instructions of your bosses, you are crossing the red line.”
