NAB can’t be abolished: Sarwar

164

Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar has said that NAB cannot be abolished. If the opposition has any suggestions for NAB’s improvement, bring them forward.
He was speaking at the Governor House on Thursday after receiving donation of 100,000 masks from Tariq Rana, Head of Chain for Association Pakistan, Vice President Asif Butt, Executive Council member Omar Zaman, Asad Shafi and SM Nabil.
The governor said, ‘No threat from APC of the opposition to the government. The government will complete its constitutional term’. The governor said that opposition parties are threatening to protest every day, the people of Pakistan are not with the opposition but with the government so we are not in any danger from any protest of the opposition.
Accordingly, the government will complete its term in any case. Replying to a question, he said that due to the corona crisis, major countries of the world including Pakistan are also facing economic challenges. The economies of countries like USA and UK have also succumbed to corona.
Despite the fact that the government led by Prime Minister Imran Khan is taking steps to strengthen the country economically, in these circumstances the opposition should support the government instead of threatening to take to the streets.
Replying to a question on NAB, Governor Sarwar said that the present government believes in transparent and impartial accountability. In order to make the country economically strong and prosperous, it is necessary to rid the country of the scourge of tax evasion. Therefore, the government will not compromise on the elimination of tax evasion and accountability and the opposition’s claim that the NAB should be abolished is not correct in any case, but if the opposition has any proposals for NAB reform, then they must put these to table.
