Amir Muqam welcomes NAB proceedings against him



PESHAWAR: Adviser to Prime Minister Amir Muqam Thursday welcomed the opening of NAB cases against him and assured of providing full cooperation in due course of time to the anti-corruption watchdog.

In a statement issued here, Muqam said that this was not something new for him and recalled that in 1999, when he stepped into politics, he faced the same investigations when NAB was just a new entity.

He went on to say that he was also grilled by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Ehtesab Commission headed by the then DG Gen (r) Hamid Khan in 2014-15, but nothing proved against him in the cases they investigated.

The adviser further said that he was proud to have given something to the people instead of seeking anything from them.

Muqam also said that he believed that his sole purpose of being in politics was to serve the masses, and due to that reason, he remained a federal minister once and a state minister twice, and was now serving as an adviser to the prime minister.

The adviser to PM clarified that he remained associated with the construction business and completed all projects according to due standards. He added that his construction firm was being run by his sons from 1989, and still the firm was having projects worth Rs10 billion.
