Fazal and MNA Daniyal Aziz.
“We had asked opposition in National Assembly to move motion
for suspension of Question Hour but they did not. They shied away as
liars do and could not show any morality to discuss matter in the
House,” said Minister of State for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali.

the time, was cleared by the court.”
“Now we question whether Imran Khan and Jehangir Tareen had
not sought relief in whitening their black money and submitting
fines for concealment of assets,” he said.
“Imran and Jehangir Tareen cannot deny that they got whitened
their black money and confessed before state institutions about
concealment of assets and setting up firms in the name of their

they all clean, why they are not being investigated.”
