NAB chief should explain reasons for Nawaz’s deteriorating health, Bilawal says


KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said on Thursday that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal should tell the nation the reason behind the sudden deterioration in former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s health.

The PPP chairman said that Nawaz Sharif had been under the custody of the NAB since past 13 days and now he stood at the brink of death.

“The NAB chairman should tell how did this happen that the former prime minister came to this point under his watch,” said Bilawal.

The PPP supremo said that the NAB chairman ‘is playing with the lives of people’.

He further said that the chairman should also be accountable for those who have died under the custody of the NAB.

Bilawal claimed that former president Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif are being subjected to “political revenge in the name of accountability”.

The PPP chairman declared that Prime Minister Imran Khan “possesses no humanity” and that the incumbent government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will be responsible if anything happens to Nawaz and Zardari.

Earlier, while addressing a rally in Tharparkar, Bilawal alleged that the federal government wants to end the rights of provinces and take over Karachi which he will not let happen.

“Democratic and economic rights are under attack”, he claimed, adding: “We all will get rid of this puppet government together and form a public government.”

He went on to say that the “puppet government” and “political orphans” make fun of poverty. “They have destroyed the economy while a deal on Kashmir has also been made”, he claimed.

Bilawal further announced that the next protest will take place on Oct 26 at the border of Sindh and Punjab.

PPP chief said that they will save Pakistan by sending off the selected rulers and help the public by snatching their rights back from the federal government.
