ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Monday said those who were raising hue and cry over corruption were also involved in purchasing properties abroad.
Speaking to journalists after inaugurating NADRA Mega Centre in Islamabad, Nisar said Asif Ali Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto are only leaders who have not yet declared their assets, adding “Zardari remained in power for five years but did not declare his assets.”
The Minister said Bilawal should also explain from where money came to buy three palaces in Dubai and other properties indifferent countries. PPP Chairman should also ask his father from where he got money to buy properties abroad, Nisar said.
Instead of hurling allegations against the prime minister, Bilawal should ask his father Asif Ali Zardari about Surrey palace and from where did he arrange money to purchase such a lavish property.
He said Zardari should inform that where did he get $60 million and where the amount was now.”
The minister said launching a campaign against corruption by PPP was like Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) making an announcement that it wanted to initiate a movement for rights of Muslims in India, he said.

Ch. Nisar Ali Khan said there has been much progress in one of the two recent incidents of killing of Amjad Sabri and kidnapping of son of the Chief Justice of Sindh High Court.
Interior Minister said that Army will be deployed for security during forthcoming elections in Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
