Rana Sanaullah, the president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in Punjab and a member of parliament, expressed confidence on Saturday that the opposition’s planned no-trust motion against the Imran Khan government will be successful.
Following his appearance before a court in connection with the drug case, he spoke to the media and stated that the government had a razor-thin majority both at the national level and in Punjab.
“There is only a difference of five to seven numbers between the numbers in the center and the numbers in Punjab. It is likely that the no-trust campaign would be successful,” Sanaullah predicted. He also condemned the killing of journalist Athar Mateen by thieves in Karachi on Friday, which he described as “heinous.”
Meanwhile, the drug recovery case against him and his co-accused has been postponed until March 12 by a special court for the Control of Narcotic Substances. Rana Sana and his co-accused appeared in front of the court and had their attendance recorded.
Due to the absence of Judge Mohammad Naeem Shaikh, the case was postponed to a later date.
ANF agents apprehended Rana Sanaullah in July 2020 on the Islamabad-Lahore motorway, near the Sukheki area, as part of an investigation into narcotics trafficking. It was alleged by the ANF that 15 kilograms of drugs had been found from the PML-N leader’s vehicle. In December of the same year, he was granted bail and freed from custody.
Despite the fact that the ANF has already filed a charge sheet against the suspects, the court has not yet framed charges against them despite the fact that the case has been open for more than two years since it was first registered.
