Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister’s Adviser on Accountability Shahzad Akbar has said that the PTI-led government has recovered 210 billion rupees and retrieved 8,085 acres of illegally occupied state land from 36 politicians belonging to the opposition parties.

Talking to the media on Sunday, Akbar said these recoveries have been made in just two and half years in Punjab only and the retrieved land is now being utilized for public welfare.

Giving detail of the retrieved properties, Shahzad Akbar said 1,150 kanals of land worth over 4.57 million rupees was recovered from PML-N leader Muhammad Afzal Khokhar and brothers. He said millions of rupees in terms of penal rent have also been recovered from the land grabbers.
