‘NAB statement about corruption in Punjab under govt pressure’

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Senator Pervaiz Rashid has said that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman has issued a statement declaring Punjab responsible for 65% corruption in the country under the pressure of such a government which itself has been setting historic records of corruption.
He said that the whole world was aware about the tales of corruption associated with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
Pervaiz said that the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) which was a federal institution, had been collecting 80% revenue of the country and the FBR and the federal government were responsible for the theft of taxes amounting to Rs 2,100 billion.
Furthermore he said that the NAB chairman had himself pointed out annual corruption of Rs 5000 billion in the mega projects of the federal government. “Why is everyone afraid of taking legal action in this regard?” he asked.
He questioned the NAB chairman whether Punjab was responsible for the annual corruption of Rs 5,000 billion or for looting billions of rupees from Hajj pilgrims.
