ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders on Friday tore into the Sugar Inquiry Commission report and criticised the incumbent government for saving real culprits of the scandal while terming the investigation ‘misleading’.
The opposition parties expressed their extreme reservations after PM’s aide on accountability Shahzad Akbar declared the findings of the sugar crisis inquiry public and said that the report “confirms the premier’s long held view that businessmen in politics will put business first”.
Addressing the press conference, PML-N lawmaker Malik Mohammad Ahmad lashed out at the inquiry commission for diverting attention from the scandal since 2018.
“We reject the inquiry report outright,” he maintained, adding that no one dares to ask on who is creating the scarcity of sugar by allowing exports despite low production in the country.
“Can Usman Bazdar get to decide the subsidization of sugar without Imran Khan’s permission?” he then asked.
