PTI did not appoint even a sweeper in NAB: Fawad Ch
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) did not recruit even a sweeper in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
Addressing the National Assembly session, Fawad mentioned that the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) appointed all the appointments in the NAB.
Rejecting PML-N President Shehbez Sharif’s allegations – the PTI and NAB have an unholy alliance – the information minister clarified that both the parties appointed all the employees in the NAB and the PTI did not appoint a single person.
“Officials in NAB were appointed by the previous governments and not even a sweeper in the bureau has been hired by us,” the minister said. He asserted that not even a single case against the Sharif brothers was initiated by the current government.
Responding to the Shehbaz’s speech, Fawad further said, “I was very glad that the opposition leader repeatedly said he will be ashamed and leave the Parliament if corruption is proven against him but I want to ask if the same rules apply on his brother.”
He clarified that the cases against Shehbaz will not affect relation with Turkey and China, adding that today, Pakistan’s relations with UAE, China, Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia are the strongest they have ever been and are continuing to gain strength.
He further said that the NAB should not be summoned in the committee but if the opposition wanted to change some laws, they just come up with the proposals.
