As the National Accountability Bureau conducted its operations, various politicians and political parties have issued statements against the institution. The latest to condemn the actions of NAB was none other than Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif himself. According to details, the PM chided NAB and directed it to work with responsibility and said disgracing people as well as stopping them from working was not appropriate.
Before this, various politicians including former Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari and PTI chief Imran Khan had also criticised NAB. Analysts are surprised as to how an institution, whose basis was formed by consensus among the top two political parties of Pakistan, is now being subjected to such harsh criticism. Furthermore, NAB hasn’t even conducted any effective activity against any important institution or politician hence it being the subject of harsh statements is surprising.
Political pundits are of the view that after its recent operations in Sindh, NAB has now turned its guns towards Punjab.
