ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Naeemul Haque on Thursday claimed that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government is planning to appoint Intelligence Bureau (IB) Director General Aftab Sultan as the new chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), vowing that the PTI will oppose any such move.
Talking to reporters, the PTI leader dispelled the impression that the party is divided over the nomination for the key parliamentary slot of the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly.
“The party has unanimously reached a decision that Imran Khan will be the opposition leader,” he claimed.
Coming down hard on former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Haque alleged that Sharif has personal ties with Indian officials and his men are still in the government.
“The ruling party is impeding justice in the country. The government’s top candidate for chairman NAB had sent an ambulance equipped with surveillance apparatus to the Federal Judicial Complex during the Panama Papers investigation,” Haque alleged.
He said that state institutions cannot function impartially under incumbent Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
“The Model Town incident report has still not made public despite the court orders, besides ‘Dawn Leaks’,” he remarked.
Justifying Imran Khan’s snap polls demand, he said that the government has failed to cope with prevailing challenges across the country.
“Imran Khan’s demand for early election was to address the public grievances,” he added.
