Meanwhile, Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar said the former chief minister Shehbaz Sharif used to say that even if a penny of corruption was proved against him, he would quit politics.

“Now that Rs4 billion came out of the bank account of his peon Maqsood whose salary was Rs25,000, what is his intention now?” he asked.

“By the way, how many pennies were there in Rs4 billion? Innocent question,” he tweeted.
