Not afraid of NAB, economic conditions frightening me: Hamza
Earlier on April 6, PML-N leader Hamza Shehbaz has said that he is not afraid of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), but economic conditions are making him afraid.
Talking to workers from the roof of his residence at Model Town on Saturday, he said that PM Imran Khan had destroyed the economy in eight months.
Hamza Shahbaz said that the government had snatched bread from the people. “Treatment in government hospitals has gone expensive,” he said.
The PML-N leader said that the NAB raid on his house was unjustified. “The NAB has violated the sanctity of the house,” he said.
He said that the rule of law had won after the court verdict.
