Demo against PML-N MNA

A violent protest demonstration was held by Joint Christian Action Committee (JCAC) on Thursday outside the Rescue-15 office at Benazir Bhutto Road (BBR) against PML-N MNA Malik Abrar Ahmed for allegedly occupying with the connivance of high-ups of City District Government Rawalpindi (CDGR) and officers of Land Revenue Department, on the land reserved for the construction of Church and Saint Joseph Free Hospital at IJ Principal Road. Holding banners and placards against the MNA the angry protestors, including women and old aged men, blocked BBR for more than three hours for traffic posing hardships for commuters in sizzling heat. The protestors also raised slogans against PML-N President Nawaz Sharif, Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif, District Coordination Officer (DCO) Saqib Zafar, MNA Malik Abrar Ahmed, Tehsildar Rawalpindi and other big wigs of Punjab government. Some protestors stripped off their shirts and laid in the middle of the road to vent their anger against the ruling party in the province. Addressing the protestors, JCAC Rawalpindi/Islamabad Akram Waqar Gill said that the land mafia has made their lives a hell as they were illegally occupying their worship places and hospitals with out any fear. He alleged that PML-N MNA Malik Abrar Ahmed grabbed a piece of land at the IJP Road, which was allocated for the construction of a Church and free hospital. He also alleged that in this crime, MNA enjoying the support of DCO, City Police Officer (CPO), Tehsildar Rawalpindi and some influential of the Land Revenue Department. When contacted Malik Abrar Ahmed by this scribe, he denied all the allegations levelled against him saying, “All the office bearers of JCAC are fraudsters and falsely implicating him in the land grabbing case”. He said that a person Zaman Cheema and JCAC President Akram Gill had purchased land documents of 5-kanal land from some party in Misrial and later approached him for helping them to occupy on the land. He said that the aforementioned persons had only papers while the land existed nowhere. “I have not favoured them, that is why they are on roads and leveling baseless allegations against me. I have nothing to do with the land grabbing case” MNA said categorically,” he asserted. Abrar claimed that Zaman Chema is notorious land grabber as he had also grabbed over the land of Church in Government Gordon College and later used his (MNA) name. “Now again Gill and Cheema are on the road for damaging my credibility. By doing so, JCAC wanted to grab the land, which neither exist anywhere nor in their name. I will file a defamation suit against JCAC soon,” Malik Abrar added.
