PM Imran ‘hiding behind NAB’, claims Hamza Shehbaz


LAHORE: Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz on Monday criticised Prime Minister Imran Khan, claiming that he is “hiding behind the National Accountability Bureau (NAB)” even though he should be investigated.

“Imran Khan issues threats during every press conference he holds. Who is he threatening?” Hamza said while addressing media outside an accountability court in Lahore.

“You [PM Imran] were voted in as a fake prime minister on fake votes.”

“This is called a democratic government? I call it a fake government which the public is watching,” he added.

“There is no difference between NAB and Mansha Bomb. Mansha Bomb illegally grabbed land and NAB grabs freedom.”

“Shehbaz Sharif was called in the Saaf Pani case and was arrested in the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case. Now, the NAB prosecutors have nothing to say,” he commented on the case.

“Pervez Khattak, Aleem Khan and Pervaiz Elahi have all suffered because of NAB while Imran Khan is trying to stay clean.”

“Imran is not clean. He enjoyed traveling in helicopters which belonged to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government,” he added.

“In 2018, Imran stole the public’s vote and they will hold him accountable,” the Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N) leader said.

Moreover, PML-N Spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb has said that Shehbaz Sharif has been arrested in a ‘baseless’ case.

Talking to media men on the occasion of appearance of former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif before NAB court in Lahore on Monday, Marriyum said that the surroundings of Accountability Court were sealed by placing containers.

What was something that is being hidden from general public, she questioned.

Fear of government is on rise with the passage of every single day, she said, adding that the deployment of Police and Rangers for PML-N workers was an undemocratic act.

PTI mounted on a container, they attacked PTV but we didn’t do such act, she said.
