Government will file a case against Usman Buzdar in Anti-Corruption Department: Ataullah Tarari

Last month, PML-N leader Ataullah Tarar had said that the government has decided to move the anti-corruption establishment against former Punjab chief minister Usman Buzdar.

At a press conference, the PML-N leader said that the former chief minister deprived the poor masses of their rights and “ruthlessly looted the country’s resources”.

The PML-N’s deputy general secretary claimed that former prime minister Imran Khan played the role of a facilitator in Buzdar’s “corruption”, while those facing the former chief minister were also involved in “plundering the country’s resources”.

Tarar had said, ‘Usman Buzdar will have to answer for his corruption.’

After PTI won the elections in Punjab, the biggest question after the July 2018 polling was who would be the next Chief Minister of Punjab? As the days passed, new and old names were added to the cocktail shaker. There were high-profile contenders such as former provincial minister Abdul Aleem Khan and TV host-turned-politician Fawad Ahmed Chowdhury. And then there were those that required a little more digging to profile.

But no one was as reprehensible as Sardar Osman Ahmed Khan Buzdar. That is why his nomination by PTI chairman Imran Khan came as a political victory and a setback for Buzdar himself.

The former chief ministerial candidate is a lawyer and landowner by profession.

Born in May 1969 in the tribal area of ​​Dera Ghazi Khan in Punjab, Buzdar is the eldest of five siblings. Where he received his early education from his family village Barathi, he later did his post graduation in Political Science at the Bahauddin Zakaria University in Multan and then completed his LLB.
