Will ‘honest’ Prime Minister Imran Khan take action against Punjab Minister Aleem Khan after Islamabad High Court (IHC) Chief Justice Athar Minallah observed as how he (Aleem) used state land to connect his housing society to a main road in Islamabad.
Justice Minallah heard a petition seeking the registration of an FIR against PTI food minister Aleem Khan for land encroachment.
The Capital Development Authority (CDA) disclosed that Aleem Khan encroached on state land to connect his Park View Housing Society to Kuri Road.
The land was not meant for a road and pointed the finger at two bureaucrats who have recently served as CDA chairman, the CDA said. Justice Minallah observed if Aleem Khan was so powerful that he used state land for his private housing society, to which the CDA’s counsel replied that the housing society was established on private land, but the road was constructed on land that belonged to the CDA.
After the IHC observation, is PM Khan needs to have more proof. Aleem who was a big financer of PTI before it came to power, now seems to making the lost bucks.
In Punjab where corruption is rampant and no action is possible under remote-controlled Usman Buzdar, only Imran Khan can take action against Aleem and two bureaucrats for this open corruption. — PAK DESTINY
