The Punjab govt has decided to cancel the land acquisition of 6500 kanal to Namal College in Mianwali. The chief Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Attaullah Tarar announced the decision on Tuesday.
He stated while addressing a press conference at 96-H Mannequin City that the former Prime Minister Imran Khan had acquired the shamlaat land in Mianwali forcefully and had not paid the charges to the locals, therefor govt has decided to cancel the acquisition of 6500 Kanals land to Namal Knowledge City. He also explained that Imran Khan misused his powers for attaining the land and wanted to use it for personal purposes.
Ataullah Tarar further said that since Imran Khan belongs to Minawali, he acquired this land for his personal use and the revenue that he attained from it has not been mentioned or registered anywhere.

Moreover, he claimed that Imran Khan also applied for personal residence at Lahore Development Authority (LDA). According to Mr. Tarar, he submitted an application in the 80s asking the Director General LDA for a plot because he did not have a private residence in the country.
