KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders said on Sunday the media campaign targeted against Haleem Adil Sheikh is aimed at hush up the mega corruption of the PPP leaders.
Addressing a press conference at the Insaf House here, the leader of opposition in Sindh assembly Firdous Shamim Naqvi said some person sent a complain to the NAB and the NAB issued a letter to concerned officers to get information. He said the media is sensitizing the issue with glaring headlines like Haleem Adil on the radar of the NAB, noose tightened, etc.
He said the people belong to the PPP are sending complaints against Haleem Adil Sheikh to suppress his voice. He said Zardari is the symbol of corruption in Pakistan, but the media has forgotten him. He said the JIT on Zardari is forgotten. He said Murad Ali Shah had illegally given Rs100 Crore to Thatta sugar mills, and it is also forgotten. He said in the light of audit reports, cases of billions of rupees corruption could have be filed against the PPP leaders but this matter is also forgotten. He said; however, if one complaint is filed against Haleem Adil, the media creates a lot of hype.
However, PTI vice president and parliamentary party leader in Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh said when he started to expose the corruption of Sindh government, these people became his enemy. He said SSP Dr Rizwan had leveled allegations to PPP leaders and the media should have probed into the matter. He said the media forgets these things. He said Sindh government has gone to the anti-corruption department against Haleem Adil but no case was made. He said that Sindh government has got information available about all lands in Sindh and it has yet failed to prove any case against Haleem Adil.
He said the PTI has the members who are free from corruption. He is the PTI is not the party whose members will say 'why I am expelled?' He said there is no place for the corrupt elements in the PTI. He said action was taken against a KpK minister when an audio recording was discovered. He said in Sindh there are people who are from Mr 10 percents to Mr 90 percents. He said the media should give focus on corruption in Sindh. He said he is going to the NAB against the government of Sindh for its corruption along with solid proofs and we will have to see what action the NAB takes against the Sindh government. He hoped that the media would give the same coverage to other complaints also.
However, Firdous Shamim Naqvi said the media should probe into who gave lands worth billions of rupees to Malik Riaz for peanuts.
