Adviser to CM Punjab on Home and Information Omer Sarfraz Cheema has stated that instead of strengthening the institutions, the 13-party group of PDM sitting at Islamabad paved the way for NRO-2 by amending the NAB rules to hide their corruption.

He said that Islam first laid the foundation of accountability for all people in general and rulers in particular.

He said that people have the right to question their elected representatives without fear. Based on this principle, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf introduced the Right to Information Act in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for the first time in the country’s history.

He expressed these views while participating as a special guest in an event organized by Punjab Information Commission on the occasion of World Anti-Corruption Day. Chief Information Commissioner Punjab Mehboob Qadir was also present on the occasion.

Cheema said that PTI during its tenure ensured effective implementation of existing laws along with capacity building of institutions and comprehensive legislation.

This was also the main reason for the establishment of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf 26 years ago. Omer Sarfraz Cheema further said that unlike other political parties, the leadership of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf is a practical example of compliance with the country’s laws. On the other hand, instead of strengthening the institutions, the 13-party group sitting at Islamabad paved the way for NRO-2 by amending the NAB rules to hide their corruption. He said that easy access of people to information is the most important need of today’s era.

PTI has set an example for other political parties to follow by making the details of all their funds public.
