Pertinent to mention that earlier in August, a first information report (FIR) was filed against Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah under the Anti-Terrorism Act in Gujrat’s Industrial Area Police Station.
The FIR was registered on the complaint of common citizen Shahkaz Aslam. According to the FIR’s content, the minister blatantly targeted honorable judiciary and government officials in 2021. The FIR’s copy further read that Rana Sanaullah’s statement has instilled anxiety, terror, and unrest among the public.
Reacting to the development, PTI leader Shahbaz Gill warned Rana Sanaullah that he will be the losing party in this game and that early elections are the only solution.

“Arrest warrant issued for Rana Sana. This is what I am saying now, Rana sir, in this game that is being played, our beak and your tail will be lost. The people will starve to death. Therefore, the only solution is immediate elections so that the people can choose their representative government that will come and serve the people and the looting will stop,” Shahbaz Gill tweeted.
