There are some motives behind NAB’s promptness: Hamza Shehbaz
LAHORE (92 News) – PML-N leader Hamza Shehbaz Sharif has accused the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) of forcing him to contact the government.
Addressing the press conference on Saturday, he said that Fawad Chaudhry was seeking the bail for Aleem Khan. “Imran Khan used to object to the chairing of the PML-N meeting by Nawaz Sharif, but he takes tea with Jahangir Tareen in Bani Gala. Tareen is presented as Einstein in the cabinet meeting,” he maintained.
Criticizing the government, Hamza Shehbaz said that there are some motives behind promptness of the NAB. “NAB DG Saleem Shahzad had asked me to withdraw the resolution against his fake degree in the Punjab Assembly,” he said.
The PML-N leader said that the NAB DG had promised not to summon him for a month. “Saleem Shahzad had asked me to reach settlement with the government. The NAB itself will resolve the matter,” he disclosed.
Hamza Shehbaz appealed to the apex court to summon him and the NAB DG. “Aleema Khan should also be held accountable like my ailing mother,” he demanded.
On the other hand, the NAB has rejected the allegations leveled by PML-N leader Hamza Shehbaz against the NAB DG.
The statement said that the NAB DG had never talked to Hamza Shehbaz about his degree. “Hamza Shehbaz trying to influence the NAB investigations through his false and baseless allegations,” it added.
It said that the NAB had received concrete proofs against Hamza Shehbaz and his family regarding money laundering and assets beyond known sources of income.
