SUKKUR: Khursheed Shah said on Sunday that the country’s top anti-graft body should be allowed to work in Punjab, claiming that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had been suppressed in the province.
Talking to journalists at his residence in Sukkur, the National Assembly opposition leader said if NAB fails to act in Punjab but takes action in other provinces, the body would become controversial.
Commenting on former Karachi mayor Mustafa Kamal’s recent news conference in which he directed blistering criticism at the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and party chief Altaf Hussain, Shah said Kamal’s statements would ‘certainly affect the party’.
Shah said the ex-mayor’s stance was ‘powerful’ and many others would choose to support him. As for the MQM, he said the party was “an old and beloved baby of the establishment, but it has now become a little naughty”.
