Govt is exerting pressure on NAB: Bilawal Bhutto
18 October, 2018
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Wednesday said the government is exerting pressure on the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), a private TV channel reported.
“We can clearly see the pressure being exerted by the government on the anti-graft body,” he told media outside Parliament House. “Prime Minister Imran Khan threatens NAB in his press conferences,” he said. “Government should let the watchdog work freely,” he stressed.
“Hunger and poverty are the major challenges towards establishment of peaceful ties with the international community. We took revolutionary steps to eradicate hunger from the country during our tenure,” Bilawal said. “Benazir Income Support Programme was established under Asif Ali Zardari and we took steps under the social protection net to make the people’s life better,” he said. “Sindh government in collaboration with non-government organisations set up programmes to eradicate hunger. Under these programmes, women are being provided interest-free loans and more than 600,000 families have come out of poverty,” he claimed.
