CM Punjab says ACE recovered Rs. 206bn in his tenure

Chief Minister Usman Buzdar says empowerment of the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) bore fruit as it recovered the state land from land grabbers and made recoveries worth Rs. 206 billion during the tenure of the PTI government.

The chief minister told during a video link news conference on Thursday the present government had laid its hands on the politicians and influential mafia that deprived the masses of their basic human rights during the past three decades.

Giving details of recoveries by the ACE, Mr. Buzdar said the department had received 51,050 complaints, launched 11,488 inquiries, registered 3,185 cases, and arrested 3,904 accused.

CM added, “The anti-corruption department, during the past 27 months, recovered the state land worth Rs. 181 bn from the influential land grabbers compared to the state land worth Rs2.65bn during the past 10 years.”

Buzdar said the PTI government was following a zero tolerance policy against corruption and all the influential people involved in land grabbing or corruption were being caught. He said the anti-corruption campaign would help recover resources that would be utilised for the welfare of people in the province.
