LAHORE: Following National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) notice, the resignation of Punjab Minister for Sports and Education Rana Mashhood is expected as the Punjab government mulls action.
According to reports, opinions of participants in the special meeting of Punjab government remained split on the issue. One group wants Mashhood to step down while the other wants to stand by him. The latter is of the view that resignation will cause further problems.
The government sources said that NAB’s notice cannot be the reason for provincial minister’s resignation. Meanwhile, Rana Mashhood has said that resignation is out of question, adding that he has already been exonerated after inquiries by Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and high court.
