Shehbaz Sharif said there was no truth in the transfer of 17 million dollars funds to China in the Multan Metro Bus (MMB) project, adding that a private television channel had hatched propaganda against him.
Shehbaz said the alleged company Capital Engineering did not exist at all and it was a poor attempt into defamation and undermine his achievements as a ‘Khadim’ of the people of Punjab.
He said there was no company like the Capital Engineering and Construction. The Chief Minister presented himself for ruthless accountability if isappropriation of a single penny was proven against him, adding that the allegations were leveled by those who were involved in getting loans worth billions of rupees written off in the past.
