NAB reforms on the cards, says Firdous
ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has said the drafting of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) reforms is under consideration.
Talking to a private news channel, she stressed the need for further improving the accountability process in the country.
Firdous lamented that unfortunately, some corrupt elements had looted the country. She hoped the bilateral relations between Pakistan and China would further strengthen after prime minister’s recent visit to China.
She said the visit would usher in a new phase of true democracy in the country.
Firdous said the prime minister had stressed the need for making parliament more functional during cabinet meetings, adding the prime minister himself will come to the parliament.
She said the government’s top priority was to stabilise the country’s economy.
She said that Imran Khan’s statement about Bilawal Bhutto was a slip of tongue, adding such kind of words should not be used in the politics.
She said in politics the attacks on individuals should be ended.
The premier’s aide said that no government wanted differences with the opposition in the parliament.
She termed oppositions’ non-serious behavior becoming the reason of rift in the parliament. “We had to leave double standards in politics and pay focus on the development of country,” she added.
