National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman retired justice Javed Iqbal said on Monday (Dec 9) while addressing a ceremony organised in Islamabad on the International Anti-Corruption Day, said that the BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) and Malam Jabba references are ready to file.
Chairman NAB asserted that the government has never interfered in the internal matters of the accountability bureau. “References of the BRT [Bus Rapid Transit] and Malam Jabba scandal are ready […] the direction of wind is about to shift […] keep an eye on next few weeks,” he said.
“Corruption is present in the society either in beautiful or ugly form […] we can’t claim of total eradication of the menace of corruption,” he said, while terming it “a war against defective system.” “Every Pakistani has a responsibility of eliminating corruption [from the society] […] we are accountable to the Almighty for every word and deed.”
“Self-accountability will produce good results […] there’s also a section [of the society] that has many complaints with the NAB,” he said, adding that nobody carries pocket in his shroud. Mr Javed Iqbal further outlined that it was the responsibility of the parliament to perform legislation while observing the public’s aspirations.
