Lahore: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader, Rana Sanaullah has lashed out at anti-corruption watchdog.
While talking to media in Lahore on Thursday, Sanaullah accused government of using National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against opposition.
“Opposition leaders are arrested during inquiry which is highly unjust. Why no one is arrested in billion tree inquiry? NAB is not running as an independent institution and government is using it to take revenge from the opposition,” he said.
Terming the anti-corruption watchdog as helpless institution, PML-N leader said that all these people are prisoners of conscience.
“NAB is not an accountability bureau but a political engineering institution. It cannot be run as an independent institution now,” he added.
Sanaullah further stated that opposition will bring forward its strategy on September 20. “These negative tactics cannot stop us from fighting against this incompetent government,” he said.
Speaking over the issue of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s return to Pakistan, he said that it is party’s decision that Nawaz Sharif should complete his treatment first and then return home.
Talking about the changes in Punjab police, Rana Sanaullah said that six Inspectors General of Police (IGPs) have been changed in two years.
“I know Inam Ghani personally and he is a good man who works on merit. Even he mentioned this yesterday that they are the victims of a notice only,” he added.
It is pertinent to mention that on January 02, 2020, NAB Lahore had summoned former law minister Rana Sanaullah in assets beyond income charges.
On July 02 last year, the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) arrested Rana Sanaullah from Sukheke Interchange on his way to Lahore from Faisalabad. Later, the Lahore High Court (LHC) granted bail to Rana Sanaullah in exchange for an indemnity bond worth Rs 1 million.
