Chairman Senate prohibited members to meet Chairman NAB

News by:

With all the accountability rage going on in the country, Chairman NAB Justice (rtd) Javed Iqbal is a powerful and well known and rather feared personality in the political scenario of our country.

Recently, the opposition parties have written a letter to Chairman NAB asking for a meeting. All the major opposition parties including PML-N, PPP, MQM, BNP-Mengal and JUI-F are on board with this step. The opposition wants to discuss on the issues of harassment of opposition members by NAB. The opposition has demanded a meeting time with the Chairman NAB immediately.

The opposition says that all the opposition parties support the accountability process in the country but the way it has been handled is completely biased. The opposition members of the parliament are harassed by NAB and are treated unfairly as compared to others. The opposition has also said that the kind of accountability going in the in the country right now gives the feeling of political victimisation and does not projects a good image of Pakistan.

However, in recent developments, Chairman Senate has barred the members to meet Chairman NAB. This move has been condemned by many senators of the opposition who said that the opposition members of the parliament are harassed by NAB and are treated unfairly as compared to others. Which gives the feeling of political victimisation and does not projects a good image of Pakistan.

Opposition also said that Prime Minister Imran Khan and his sister Aleema Khan should also pass through the accountability process as is everyone else.
