NAB doing same as FIA, Zardari tells PM Sharif

KARACHI: Former president Asif Ali Zardari Tuesday responded to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s criticism of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) saying that the anti-graft body is doing the same what the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) is busy with in the country, ARY News reported.

In a statement issued today, Zardari lamented continuous steps in contrast with the 18th Amendment that guarantees provincial autonomy.

He reminded Mian sahib of one of his cabinet members’ statement in which he stated that former federal minister Dr. Asim Hussain has not been involved in any wrongdoing or corruption.

The former president bemoaned that despite all this Dr. Hussain is being abashed for months.

Earlier addressing workers in Bahawalpur, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif talked of some hurdles in the way of government to deliver.

He alleged NAB of ‘laying hands on innocent masses and embarrassing them’.

The premier asked chairman NAB of taking notice of it, warning of due action otherwise.
