Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday termed Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah’s arrest earlier today a “desperate attempt at political victimization”.
In a tweet, Bilawal said: “Arrest of President Punjab PMLN by Anti-Narcotics force is obviously desperate attempt at political victimization
Sanaullah has been a vociferous critic of PPP in the past & is currently one of the most vocal critics of the regime. Arrests expose govts weakness & desperation.”
Earlier in the day, Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) officials confirmed to Geo News that the anti-drug body had arrested Sanaullah, a member of the National Assembly (MNA) and president of the PML-N’s Punjab wing.
Sanaullah is said to have been arrested in a drug-related case. ANF officials told Geo News the arrest took place near Sukheke while the senior PML-N politician was reportedly travelling from Lahore to Faisalabad.
