KARACHI: Federal Water Resources Minister Faisal Vawda lambasted former State Minister for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali for accusing him of laundering money to buy properties in central London.
"Abdi Sher Ali’s mental state is not right. He takes drugs and stands in front of any building,” Vawda said while speaking to media on Saturday after visiting a private school in Karachi.
Vawda added, “He [Abid Sher Ali] would stand in front of the Buckingham Palace and claim it is mine. He should not make claims and instead, show us the proof.”
“I not only know how to handle people like him but I also know how to deal with them,” Vawda added.
Last week, Ali had alleged that Vawda had laundered more than £11 million from Pakistan to buy properties in Central London.
“Faisal Vawda laundered more than £11 million from Pakistan to buy properties in Central London. Imran Khan has given him NRO and told NAB chairman not to start probe against his Halal money-laundering,” he had tweeted.
He added, “Vawda must explain money-trail and source of income, I challenge him for a debate.”
The federal minister in reply to Ali's tweet had challenged him to go to the court if he had proof.
“Neither I'm fond of seeing your face nor interested to listen to your useless talk. If you have the proof/evidence just tell me where to come. Don’t run away like your coward leader Nawaz Sharif who lies in NA, SC and on TV too. Also go to the court if you have proof,” he had tweeted.
