In a rejoinder to Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif’s stinging speech in the assembly session after his arrest by NAB, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry said the incumbent PTI government has neither instituted a single case against the younger Sharif nor the arrests were made on its directives.

The session of the lower house of Parliament was convened on the demand of the opposition to discuss the arrest of Shehbaz Sharif.

The minister said the session convened on the opposition’s demand will cost the national exchequer Rs100 million.

Opposition Leader in the National Assembly, Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday alleged that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman had planned his arrest ahead of the General Elections.

Speaking on the assembly’s floor, the younger Sharif expressed that his arrest was planned between July 6 and 13th, however, the plan was not executed at that time.

‘There is an unholy alliance between Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and National Accountability Bureau,’ the former Punjab chief minister stressed in his address to the lower house of the Parliament.
