Bahawalpur, Feb.17 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has hit out at the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for recent raids on government offices and residences of government officials, asking the top corruption watchdog to act ‘responsibly’.
NAB, which operates under the National Accountability Ordinance 1999, is tasked to eliminate corruption from Pakistan through a holistic approach involving awareness, prevention and enforcement.
Sharif said that said he would also take up the matter with the NAB chairman and if any person is persecuted, then the Government will take action, reports Dawn.
Nawaz said his administration has always strived to serve the people and recalled his previous two tenures in which number of megaprojects had been initiated.
NAB needs to take up cases only after thorough initial investigation. No one should be harassed without verification and solid proof added Sharif while addressing a gathering of PML-N’s local government representatives in Bahawalpur.(ANI)
