LAHORE, July 22: Follwing the foot prints of PML-N the Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has also called for the shutting down of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
Addressing a press conference Bilawal Bhutto demanded the clouser of NAB and terming it as a scar on the face of the legal system of Pakistan. He said that after the Supreme Court verdict in Khawaja Saad Rafique case there was no reason for “NAB to stay”. “NAB chairman, who was a judge at one point, should resign if he had any respect or had read the judgment”, he added.
He also hit out at the “selectors” saying that if a government is formed through NAB and power is given to “selected pygmies” then Pakistan’s economy will be like this.
Bilawal also stated that the NAB should “clarify” itself as the Supreme Court order said that it was not taking actions against the government’s mega corruption cases. “NAB should at once launch an investigation into the foreign funding case, BRT, billion tree cases, special assistants’ assets declaration and dual nationality,” asked Bilawal.
If his party, Bilawal said, had made such a declaration then they would have been “facing an asset beyond mean cases and the media would have declared them as traitors”.
“If our system is two-faced then how can NAB Chairman come and say accountability will be done from head to toe?” asked Bilawal and called for an end to the “joke” that was being done with Pakistan.
