Buzdar yet to return official vehicles


Former Punjab chief minister Usman Buzdar was still in possession of two government vehicles, though he was asked to return them through an official letter, according to the Chief Minister Office on Friday.
Surprisingly, a copy of the letter, circulating on the media, showed that the letter was written even before the new chief minister took oath of his office. The two vehicles are a 2016 model Toyota Land-Cruiser and a 2020 model Toyota Corolla car.
As per the letter, the Special Branch, Punjab, had written the letter to chief minister Office on 16 April 2022, asking for the return of the vehicles due to shortage of the vehicles in their office. It would mean that the additional inspector general Special Branch had requested the former chief minister to return the vehicles that were under his use.
Buzdar had resigned from the office on March28 and the governor accepted his resignation on April 1.
His successor, Hamza Shehbaz, was sworn in on April 30, though he was elected by the Punjab Assembly as the chief minister on April 16.
An officer of the Special Branch claimed that the vehicles were in no one’s use in Chief Minister Office, and given that they were facing shortage of vehicles, they sought their vehicles back.
Interestingly, an official of the Chief Minister Office revealed that vehicles were still in the use of the former chief minister.
