JUI-F MPA accuses CM’s adviser of involvement in illegal recruitment


Peshawar: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) leader and Member Provincial Assembly Maulana Asmatullah Sunday asked the government to take action against Abdul Haq, the advisor to chief minister, after accusing him of corruption and illegal recruitments in government departments.
“The provincial government terminated services of 20 secretaries of local government who were appointed by Abdul Haq after receiving Rs 300,000 each,” Asmatullah told reporters at a press conference here on Sunday.
Flanked by Jamaat-i-Islami leader Maulana Hadeem and former district naib nazim Mufti Ubaidur Rehman, Asmatullah said that an inquiry conducted by governments had proved that Abdul Haq had received money from the candidates.
He said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government had been making tall claims about elimination of corruption from the province but the government advisor’s involvement in corruption in Kohistan belied the claims. He alleged that contracts in Kohistan district were awarded after taking bribes. The JUI-F leader asked the government to take action against Abdul Haq and other persons involved in corrupt practices.
