The ordinance has benefited PM Imran and his aides, says the opposition
Senior opposition leaders on Saturday slammed the government over the newly introduced National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Ordinance, 2019, saying it benefited Prime Minister Imran Khan and his aides.
“The prime minister has given good news to his friends thorough the ordinance that they won’t be troubled anymore by NAB,” said senior leader of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazal (JUI-F) Akram Durrani.
The opposition leader said PM Imran has saved his aides and himself using the ordinance. “We don’t want friction between the country’s institutions.”
“NAB chairman should also inform us whether there is a stay order on Malam Jabba and the Billion Tree Tsunami?” he questioned.
Durrani demanded action be taken against any malpractices in the above mentioned projects.
“There is neither gas nor electricity in this government’s tenure,” he said.
Minister for Information and Labour Sindh Saeed Ghani agreed with Durrani that the ordinance has benefited PM Imran's aides.
“Laws that affect the common man should have been amended, unfortunately, that did not happen,” he said.
