Islamabad: A controversial Pakistani opposition leader has said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family has employed around 300 Indians in their sugar mill, a claim that has been rejected by the company.
Tahirul Qadri, Chairman of Pakistan Awami Tehreek, who once worked as prayer leader in a mosque operated by Sharif’s family in Lahore is critical of Sharif and his brother Shehbaz, Chief Minister of Punjab.
He accused that 300 Indians were working in Ramazan sugar mill which is owned by Sharif’s family.
He went on to say that rules were relaxed to give visa to these Indians who are also exempted from police reporting.
However, Managing Director of Ramazan sugar mills Yousaf Abbas Sharif, who is a nephew of the prime minister, rejected the charges.
“We have more than 1,100 workers and they do not include even a single foreigner,” he said.
