Sheikh Rasheed rules out amendments to NAB law

RAWALPINDI: Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed has ruled any amendments to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) laws, stressing that Prime Minister Imran Khan would be the last person to bring any changes to the accountability laws.

Talking to reporters after offering Eid prayers at Liaquat Bagh, Rasheed said that “thieves” wanted amendments to the NAB laws. “Imran Khan will be the last person to amend the NAB laws,” the minister added.

He further said that the opposition would definitely make noise in August and September but added that it was their democratic right. However, he warned them against breaking the law. “Protests can be held within the [limits of] law,” he said.

“The situation is not the same as before,” the railways minister said. “I want to tell Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman that if the law is broken during the protest, action will be taken.”

Rasheed said that Prime Minister Imran was giving subsidy on flour and sugar to reduce their prices. He also said: “Sugar, flour and petrol, three scandals have come, the fourth scandal is the about the utility stores. Imran Khan will not spare those involved in the scandals.”
