Tough decisions will have to be taken to prop up economy: Shahid Khaqan Abbasi


PML-N central leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said if NAB stays then country can not run.

“ government officers have said they can not work in the presence of NAB. It has to be decided by the government either it has to retain NAB or scrap it. Therefore, the solution to it lies in disbandment of NAB. But opposition cases should not be abolished. Watch what NAB is doing by installing cameras in the courts. Keep the cases against the politicians intact so that this impression should not be created that we scrapped NAB for the sake of our cases. Imran Khan government will be major beneficiary if NAB is abolished, he said this while talking to media men here Wednesday after his appearance in Accountability Court (AC).

He held “we have not leveled allegation against any one and insulted any one. We have stated the facts. Whosoever has looted the country will have to render account”.

The petrol is not available below its purchasing rate anywhere in the world, he said adding tough decisions will have to be made to prop up economy.

The devastation caused in four years cannot be improved within days, he remarked. Imran Khan put the country at stake to save his chair and wreaked havoc in all sectors. He added.

The value of dollar will become stable with the functioning of government, he hoped.
The constitutional slots should discharge their constitutional obligation, he urged. The president who changed the governor overnight has disappeared since the last 5 days.

He underlined the care taker set up cannot be installed for a long period.

He remarked it is his own choice when Ishaq Dar wants to return to home. He will return to Pakistan whenever he wills.
