ISLAMABAD: Federal Railways Minister Saad Rafique issued a statement on the Paragon City case at the National Accountability Office (NAB) on Wednesday stating that the law is “black.”
In the case of a press conference after the appearance of the case, Sadrafik said that he had submitted a written reply to the NAB questionnaire and the full details of the assets. He also promised to respond to the Secretary’s further questions in a timely manner.
He added that as long as the country pursues responsibility, its purpose is not clear.
The minister said that despite Pakistan’s efforts and achievements, the media trials of him and his family are still ongoing. He disclosed that as the date of the election approached, the investigation of him had been accelerated.
He did not take any land, loan or do any favoritism or nepotism, he clarified.
Zadrafik said that due to the joint efforts of political parties against the dictatorship, wrong accusations, lies, political differences and infighting will lead to Pakistan’s irreparable harm, and continued strong judicial activism.
He also suggested that politicians be qualified through elections.
Speaking about the Senate election, he said that everyone knows that Pakistan People’s Party and Pakistan’s Electronic Democrats (PTI) are dealing with each other’s opinion polls. He asked that both sides should openly admit it.
