Shehbaz Sharif deplores arrest of Rana Sanaullah
ISLAMABAD: PML-N has strongly condemned the arrest of party’s Punjab president Rana Sanaullah, terming it an example of lawlessness and political vendetta.
Shortly after Rana Sanaullah’s arrest on charges of recovery of drugs, PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif accused Prime Minister Imran Khan of setting another example of using national institutions against his political opponents.
He said that using the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and now the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) to arrest and pressurize the political opponents is deplorable.

Shehbaz called for the authorities to immediately present Rana Sanaullah before the concerned court and informed the court on what charges he was arrested.
He accused that PM Imran Khan’s personal grudge was exposed with the arrest of the PML-N Punjab president.
Separately, PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz said that party loyalist Rana Sanaullah was arrested for holding a bold and courageous stand.
In her tweet, she asked what has Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) got to do with Rana Sanaullah, adding that it could not get more absurd.
Lashing out at Prime Minister Imran Khan, Maryam said that the “Jaali-e-Azam (fake prime minister) being the small and petty man is directly behind his arrest.”
