- Imported govt just wants to protect corrupt ruling elites: Musaddiq
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) senior central leader and former prime minister’s adviser on accountability Brigadier (retd) Musaddiq Abbasi fired salvo at the imported government and said that their one-point agenda was to seize the power so as to abolish NAB and to wrap up the accountability system in the country in order to avoid the possible punishment.
Reacting to Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s statement here on Tuesday, he said that a country can never be prosperous and develop where the elite and privileged class enjoyed immunity and cannot be punished from wrongdoings and corrupt practices.
He said that the leaders of different parties of the imported government were facing serious corruption charges against them, which have yet to be answered in the courts.
The PTI leader stated that their emphasis to abolish the institution of accountability was an attempt to escape the accountability and protect their loots and plunders.
He expressed his shock that in a system based on justice, the accused cannot become a judge but ironically we are being ruled by corrupt leaders facing billions of corruption cases.
Musaddiq Abbasi revealed that even when the PTI sought their cooperation to make necessary legislation on FATF, these self-centered political parties came up with a package to abolish the NAB.
The PTI leader asked that the ruling parties should respond to the allegation against their leaders and get their named cleared of corruption rather than targeting the NAB and the accountability system.
