In an interesting revelation, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has said that it has so far recovered a record 326 billion rupees from corrupt elements and deposited the amount into national exchequer. NAB is accused by the opposition for being politically motivated against PTI’s rivals, but the analyst maintains that the anti-corruption watchdog is working independently.
According to details, Chairman NAB Justice Javed Iqbal made the claim of record recovery of looted and ill-gotten money, along with that recovered via plea-bargains, while listening to the people’s corruption-related complaints at a Khuli Kachehri (open court). The chairman issued on spot directives for resolving complaints of the complainants during the Khuli Kachehri.
NAB is Working Independently
NAB has been under severe criticism by the opposition for its alleged pro-government stance. The opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif has even gone as far to say in the National Assembly that the PTI and NAB are two sides of the same coin.
PM Imran Khan made it clear several times that NAB is an independent institution and the corrupt politicians and officials will not be spared at any cost. Cases are being investigated and filed by the watchdog which is worrisome for many politicians and bureaucrats in the country. For more latest news Pakistan, visit 9newshd.tv
