Rana Sanaullah demands guarantees of ‘peaceful’ PTI march on Islamabad – Pakistan


Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Saturday warned former prime minister Imran Khan to ensure that the long-running PTI trip to Islamabad is “peaceful” and “political”, saying the government would not allow such a state of unrest to continue in the country.

“They will have to give [the government] guarantees that the march will be peaceful, political and democratic, “Sanaullah told a media briefing outside the Lahore district court and the sessions, where he attended a drug trial filed against him by the anti-drug (ANF) party.

In his interview with reporters, he accused Imran and his predecessor Sheikh Rashid of “reviving” and “misleading” society against the government.

“Even yesterday, Imran told his followers not to leave anyone. I warn you one last time – not as a minister – but as the president of the PML-N Punjab. If you do not give up these tactics. .

Sanaullah was referring to the PTI chairman’s speech in a speech he addressed at the Myanwali party rally. The former prime minister told his staff that no containers had been placed on the road to prevent them from traveling to Islamabad or to the interior minister.

He also accused Sanaullah of killing 18 people.

In his speech today, the PML-N leader warned Imran that if he did not correct his ways, the PML-N would also order its employees to “catch and beat them”.

“This is your misconception that you will be able to create chaos or chaos in the country. Nothing will happen,” Sanaullah told Imran. “See [the supporters] you will be human after a few beatings. “

He also praised Awami Muslim League (AML) leader Sheikh Rashid for his “ignorance” and “misleading” comments about the government. “You have told people that this protest is going to be bloody.

He said the minister would have to give the government assurances that the march would be peaceful, political and democratic.

He also demanded that the PTI “stay away” from it, condemn and apologize for the Masjid-i-Nabwi incident, in which Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and a member of his cabinet were harassed and harassed by Pakistani religious extremists last month.

We know they were your people. They have been identified. Take action against them, “Sanaullah added.

Shortly after his speech, PTI leader Farrukh Habib took to Twitter to say that Imadi Khan’s popularity with Azadi of March began to form the “legs” of the government.

“This is a Fascist government that threatens to destroy the peace and order of the country, it wants civil war in the streets,” Habib added.

‘March looks to save Pharaoh’

Rana Sanaullah also said that Imran Khan’s march in Islamabad was aimed at protecting Farah Khan – a close PTI aide to the wife of chairman Bushra Bibi who is accused of corruption by opponents, and a NAB investigation has been launched.

“There are a number of allegations [one of which is] that Usman Buzdar was appointed chief minister of the Punjab to take orders from Pharaoh, “he collected billions of dollars from the posts and there was a transaction that indicated the money had been sent out.”

The minister went on to say that Imran’s pardon process was “brought to Pharaoh because he benefited greatly from it”.

“These are just allegations. But unlike them (PTI) we will not present the allegations as evidence. We inquire about these allegations and an indictment or trial will only be instituted once we have received concrete evidence,” he added.

The drug case

The court immediately reopened the drug case against the UN interior minister.

At the beginning of the trial, the prosecutor stated that the use of drugs was illegal and that the challan case had been settled. “We have a chemical test report, 15 witnesses and court evidence about the accused, let them be charged now,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sanaullah’s lawyer, Syed Farhad Ali Shah, has filed a petition for his client to be permanently released from court appearances as he had many debates after taking office as union minister.

Subsequently, the court issued a notice to the ANF and sought further hearings from the three lawyers for the three accused. The trial is adjourned until May 21.

On July 1, 2019, Sanaullah was arrested by the ANF Lahore group while traveling from Faisalabad to Lahore near the Ravi Toll Plaza highway, claiming to have carried 15kg of heroin in his vehicle. A special military unit also arrested five others, including the driver and bodyguard of the PML-N leader.

The FIR is subject to Section 9 (C) of the Narcotic Substances Act, 1997, which carries a death sentence or life imprisonment for up to 14 years in prison, with a fine of up to R1 million.
