DUBAI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman, Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday said the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has opened another chapter of ‘one-party accountability’ today.
“For NAB everything is hunky-dory all across the country with the exception of People’s Party,” Zardari said in a reactionary statement that came on the heels of NAB’s decision to undertake inquiry into the alleged corruption by the PPP’s provincial ministers and MPAs.
Asif Zardari said never forget that the history will keep the account of what is going on today and warned of dangerous consequences as its result.
In a derogatory remark, the PPP Co-chairman said the NAB had better shut down all its offices in the country and move to the People’s Party Secretariat.
“NAB through its decisions against Arbab Alamgir, Asma Arbab and Pir Mazharul Haq has given credence to their claims that accountability is only to be faced by People’s Party while all others fall outside the jurisdiction of NAB,” he regretted.
NAB okays investigation against more PPP leaders
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday decided to launch investigations against several PPP leaders including its former ministers Pir Mazharul Haq, Arbab Alamgir, his wife Asma Arbab, senior advisor Dost Muhammad Rahmo, MPA Abdul Sattar Rajpar and members of Sindh Public Service Commission.
According to NAB, Pir Mazharul Haq faces charges of 13000 illegal inductions besides causing a loss of Rs6 billion to the national kitty.
Other PPP members, identified by the NAB for investigation, face similar charges of financial irregularities and making assets through misuse of authority.
