ISLAMABAD: The PPP has condemned the reference filed by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah, terming it as an attack on Sindh, The News reported on Wednesday.

“Whenever NAB finds Imran Khan in trouble, it starts victimising opposition. The Broadsheet scandal has exposed the NAB completely,” said Secretary Information PPP Parliamentarians, Shazia Atta Marri MNA while reacting to the NAB reference.

Saying that the nexus between the NAB and Niazi is a threat to the country's stability, Shazia asked: “Why NAB does not act on sugar, BRT, flour, LNG, and other corruption scandals?"

She said that this act reminds the people of Sindh of the bitter memories of Rawalpindi. “The government should stop targeting and attacking Sindh through NAB,” she added.
