Making NAB toothless dishonesty with nation: Altaf Shakoor

Karachi, October 08, 2019 (PPI-OT): Pasban Democratic Party (PDP) chairman Altaf Shakoor has said that making National Accountability Bureau (NAB) toothless by limiting its power is dishonesty with Pakistani nation and it would set very bad precedents. In a statement here Tuesday, he said the NAB should be given right to investigate into a mega scandal in which Customs recorded $12billion imports from China as $6million. He said this mega scandal shows the unholy nexus of corrupt traders and dishonest bureaucrats in Pakistan. He asked if FBR and State Bank of Pakistan were sleeping when this mega fraud was being made.


Altaf Shakoor demanded stern action against corruption mafia including crooked bureaucracy who had deprived the national kitty of huge revenue in tune of trillion of rupees with their corruption and malpractices. He asked why the PTI government has kept a mum over this mega scandal. He said it is being heard that the powers of NAB are being curtailed to probe into this scandal, which is really sad.


He said Pakistani people are being looted by different mafias. He said the builder and housing society mafias have already robbed hundreds of thousands of Pakistani citizens, depriving them of their life-long savings. He said a builder has deposited just paltry Rs480 billion in the national kitty for a fraud of trillions of rupees.


He demanded full recovery from the corrupt elements including builders and developers to restore the confidence of Pakistani masses on justice system of the country. He asked the government to shun protecting their own cronies involved in mega corruption cases. He also requested the NAB and other corruption watchdog institutions to probe impartially and not to punish innocent citizens but target the real big fish of corruption mafia.
