Staff Reporter


The opposition Rahbar Committee’s convener Akram Durrani on Saturday said the NAB Amendment Ordinance 2019 has been introduced to save Prime Minister Imran Khan and his friends. “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-F Akram Durrani.
He bashed the federal government and said it has failed to provide electricity and gas to the people. “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.
Akram Durrani alleged that those who speak up openly, cases are lodged against them. He stressed that the opposition does not want conflict between the institutions.
Earlier, Akram Durrani chaired a session of the Rahbar Committee which was attended by Pakistan Muslim League-N leader Ayaz Sadiq, Pakistan People’s Party leaders Faisal Kareem Kundi and Humayun Khan. Mian Iftikhar Hussain, Usman Kakar, Shafiq Pasrori and Hashim Babar were also present.
The leaders from the opposition deliberated on NAB detainments, army chief’s tenure extension, Pervez Musharraf case and other important matters.
Meanwhile, Sindh Information Minister Saeed Ghani on Saturday said the National Accountability Bureau Amendment Ordinance 2019 has been introduced to save Prime Minister Imran Khan and his allies.
The minister held a press conference here and remarked that the premier had once said that some of his friends are under scrutiny by the anti-corruption watchdog and he will now be happy as the amendment ordinance has saved them from accountability.
Saeed Ghani maintained that Pakistan People’s Party has always opposed the NAB law.
The PPP leader said Sindh produces 70 percent of gas yet it faces outages. Additional burden of 14.5 billion rupees was put on consumers from Sindh through electricity bills, he told.
