Lahore (Staff Report): Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and president of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) on Wednesday said that the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) announcement of a money laundering probe against Nawaz Sharif should be probed to determine who is behind the move.
Talking to the media after meeting Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal who is undergoing treatment after a failed assassination bid, Shehbaz said that the NAB inquiry announcement has cast a bad light on the accountability bureau.
According to details, the report on which the probe’s announcement was based has been denied by the State Bank of Pakistan and World Bank.
With regards to a recent statement by the NAB chief that its sun is shining on the entire country and not just Punjab, as stated by the Punjab chief minister earlier, Shehbaz said it seems in the other provinces the sun has been blocked by clouds.
Shehbaz said they have to go to the root cause of the issue behind rising extremism and intolerance in society.
In response to a question, Shehbaz said disgruntled party leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan is his friend. He asked Nisar not to let emotions take him over as he enjoys a position in the party.
While talking about his political opponents Shehbaz said that Imran Khan and Asif Ali Zardari are one of the same.
Shahbaz said lying and blame game is part of Imran’s politics and its results he will get in elections.
