It appears that Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Sardar Usman Buzdar, who is uncertain about his political future and is also facing corruption charges, has panicked as an official record from the CM House as well as the CM office has been shifted to an unknown location, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday while quoting its reliable sources.

Several Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) members of the National Assembly (MNAs), who have defected to the opposition parties in recent days, have alleged misappropriation of development funds and transfers and postings of blue-eyed boys of the Punjab chief minister in violation of the rules and merit.    

Sources have confirmed to 24News that not only laptops have been removed from the CM office but the government officials posted there have also got the data deleted from the cellphones. 

Furthermore, they have added, two trucks were hired to shift the official documents from 7 Club Road and 5 Club Road, respectively.  

Sources have disclosed that this does not stop here as footages of the interior of the CM House have also been deleted from the CCTV cameras installed in the house.  

An official posted at the CM House has told 24News on the condition of anonymity that most of his colleagues have stopped working.  

When contacted, Hassan Khawar, Spokesman for Punjab chief minister, has avoided to give comments on the allegations.
