Opposition In Sindh Rejects PPP’s Anti NAB Bill

The opposition views the measure as an attempt to rescue a spokesman for the ruling party from impending charges, as the Nationalist Party of Pakistan decided to submit a bill to the Sindh General Assembly to withdraw the 1999 application of the National Accountability Ordinance (NAO) . On Friday, the Sindh Cabinet unanimously approved a draft bill to abolish the application of the NAB law in provincial departments and municipalities controlled by the Sindh government. The draft law will be announced at the Sind General Assembly, which begins on Monday (tomorrow).

The government of Pakistan's Tehreek-i-Insaf in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has reduced.

Pakistan's Tehreek-i-Insaf in Khyber role of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the region and the legislature, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, the PTI and the Muslim Federation of Pakistan - Who had doubts about the intentions of having agreed to work on this bill through an informal contact on Saturday to resist teeth and nails.

Opposition parties sit together on Monday to form a joint strategy against the bill ahead of parliament. Opposition officials say opposition officials and government officials have all been accused of corruption or facing NAB investigations, opposition lawmakers said.

They expressed concerns about the Sindh government's plan to hand over the role of the NAB to an anti-corruption agency that is not an independent organization controlled by the local government.

We condemn attempts to abolish the role of the federal agency in Sind ... those who are overwhelmed by corruption now deny the opportunity to take responsibility for the agency," said Nand Kumar, VPA of MPA PML-F at the Sindh Conference.

He insisted that the government should reform existing laws, including accountability, but the government did not believe in reform. "They just want to save corruption." Samar Ali Khan, a PTI member of the Sindh Assembly, was critical of the PPP government's move. "Sind is the most corrupt area of the Federation. By taking this step, the rulers want to save their skin instead of removing corruption."

He said the NAB was attacked against the background of the Supreme Court's decision on the Panama document case and subsequent joint investigations because the NAB thought the PPP (leadership) was in the next stage of accountability after Sharifs. Asked why KP's PTI had done the same thing two years ago and his party is opposed to the government's bill, he acknowledged that KP has some issues and tried to depoliticize it.

MQM's Faisal Subzwari also said his party would oppose the house's bill. "Our team is concerned about the bill," he said. PPP is the largest single party in the Sind General Assembly. It has numerical strengths and can pass all laws without the support of the opposition. But the Kumar party in PML-F said the opposition party could approach the court for "illegal and unconstitutional" conduct.

NAB is currently conducting a survey of 200-250 people in Sindh. About 15 to 20 of them are politicians and dozens are other officials. The majority belong to the ruling party in Sindh.

Lead PPP leaders Asim Hussain and Sharjeel Memon are already facing court corruption charges.

The PPP government said it wanted a transparent system that called the NAB law "dictatorial and ruthless", preventing corruption and not using it against political opponents. The advocacy of Sindh Barrister Zamir Ghumro, who briefed the Cabinet on the merits of the draft bill to abolish the NAO on Friday, told Dawn that certain provisions of the NAB law - 90 days of restitution, bargaining claim of juries for defendants - It was in violation.

He said the bill would require Sindh's consent if it passes the parliament. There are two proposals to strengthen the 1991 Sindh Survey and Anti-Corruption Act or to introduce new actions to prevent corruption. However, he made it clear that the words "accountability" or "Ehtesab" would not be part of the new legislation.
