“The government is expected to take a big decision against those responsible of sugar crisis in the country,” sources said.
The decisions to be taken by the meeting would be announced by Adviser to Prime Minister on Accountability Shahzad Akbar.
On May 30, Shahzad Akbar held a press conference on the ongoing sugar corruption inquiries against the PMLN leadership.
Akbar said that the sugar inquiry commission report was released as promised by the premier and it makes some shocking revelations.
He added that the PMLN is struggling to read and understand the inquiry report or does not want to understand it due to apparent reasons.
Akbar claimed that Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) wanted to misguide the nation on the sugar inquiry commission report.
Singling out vice president of the party and former prime minister of Pakistan, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Shahzad Akbar said that he has been lying consistently and continuously on the matter.
He further entailed that the inquiry commission affixed the responsibility of the corruption on betting agents who have been working in collusion with sugar mills across the country.
Shahzad Akbar stated that the commission summoned Chief Minister Sindh, Syed Murad Ali Shah for inquiry but he refrained from appearance.
