Sindh Minister for local government Saeed Ghani on Thursday (Feb 21) lashed out at National Accountability Bureau over the arrest of Sindh Speaker Assembl and said Prime Minister Imran Khan should be arrested as well if action is being taken against those under inquiry.
Speaking to the media he said “NAB is working on an agenda.” “Does the NAB chairman’s conscience not awaken at illegal arrests? It seems like the accountability bureau was made for PPP,” he added.
“There should be a uniform attitude with everyone,” Ghani said. “There is one law and Constitution in the country. Somebody tell me which Punjab case’s trial is being conducted in Sindh? If we say anything then we are told that we are playing the Sindh card.” “We are being punished for being patriots. If an investigation into people’s family is being done, then families of Pervaiz Khattak and Aleem Khan should also be investigated,” he asserted.
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday (Feb 20) arrested Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani from a private hotel in three cases pertaining to illegal appointments, assets beyond means and embezzlement of funds. Sources said, “The decision to arrest Durrani was taken during a meeting in which NAB officials were informed that the PPP leader is currently in Islamabad.”
