KARACHI: Former prime minister and Senior Vice President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, on Thursday said Broadsheet found nothing against party supremo Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif. He said that Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is present and it is working and it will give relief to Pakistani masses. He said that the PDM is a movement on this basic thing that until and unless Pakistan will be run according to the constitution it could not make progress. He said that the election was stolen and hybrid governments were formed but all these have failed, adding that the only government which will come according to the constitution and will run according to constitution will be able to give relief to masses of Pakistan.

While talking to media persons after appearing before an accountability court in Karachi, the PML-N said those who looted the national exchequer were given NRO and those, against whom no evidences have been found are being dragged in courts by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

The NAB is a source to pressurize politicians, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said while adding that the anti-graft body holds others accountable but is answerable itself today. Who gave authority to the NAB to handover public money of Rs 7 billion to a company, he asked.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said, “Why is the verdict of the British court not being made public? The top judiciary should take suo motu notice over the matter. The Supreme Court of Pakistan has already declared in its decisions that the NAB is source of political engineering and pressurizing the politicians.”

He said that it is bitter reality that what NAB had been doing in country and is doing today in country. He said that Broadsheet could not found anything against Nawaz Sharif even after passing 20 years. He said that if there is anyone who could ask question from NAB. He said that the government and NAB should make public the verdict delivered by the UK court, adding that it will tell reality that what NAB had been doing.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that today not we but NAB Chairman should have been standing in the court, adding that today the facts are coming in front of masses and these facts are present in the report of UK court and action should have to be taken on this matter. He said that the government itself is involved in this corruption and allegation has been leveled on the government ministers today. He said that the higher judiciary should take suo motu notice of the matter.

He said that the order of the British High Court is with NAB and government and not with me but it will be published one day. He said that the Moody’s credit rating report is prepared every week and if the government will start beating the drum on the basis of Moody’s report then the country could not make progress, adding that the country will make progress when it will be run according to the constitution and this thing has been proved in last two and half years and this should be acknowledged.

He said that Pakistan Steel Mills (PSM) is present on the privatization list since 1990, adding that the protection of the employees of PSM is necessary. He said that there are many questions on the viability of the steel mills, adding that we have protected the PSM employees for five years. He said that the protection of the PSM employees should be the top priority of the government.
