Received NAB notice after announcing Jihad against PTI-IMF deal: Bilawal Bhutto
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that he had received the NAB notice after announcing a ‘Jihad’ against the deal between the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Talking to the media after appearing before the NAB on Thursday, he said that Assefa Bhutto would lead the workers if he was arrested.
Bilawal Bhutto said that they would not tolerate cruelty to the people and economic murder. “We will continue our struggle despite pressure.”
He said that neither the Leader of the House nor the opposition leader attend the NA session. “I hope Shehbaz Sharif will return soon,” he added.
He accused the NAB of harassing him. “The NAB has no authority to investigate private dealings,” he said.
According to sources, Bilawal Bhutto could not satisfy the NAB with regard to Joint Venture Opal. They said that the NAB had given a 35-question questionnaire.
A four-member team led by Rawalpindi DG Irfan Mangi questioned Bilawal Bhutto. Irfan Mangi also put questions to Bilawal Bhutto directly. The asked questions included whether you are director of the Zardari Group of Industries. “When did you ink the agreement with Bahria Town? Whether the agreement has your signatures?”
The NAB team also directed Bilawal Bhutto to submit the reply within two weeks.
A large number of PPP workers were also present during the appearance. However, no one was allowed to enter the NAB Headquarters.
