LAHORE: Punjab should not be a made a ‘no-go area’ for the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar said on Sunday.
He was addressing a party workers’ convention organised by Chaudhry Zulfiqar in Shahdara on Sunday.
“No one is above the law. There is no reason for the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz to create a fuss over the issue of accountability,” he said.
The convention comes in the wake of Sarwar’s campaign ahead of intra-party elections. He is contesting for the post of the PTI Punjab president.
“Political parties that have militant wings cannot be well-wishers of the country,” he said.
He said people were disappointed with the government’s failed policies. “The rulers have failed to fulfill promises made during the 2013 general elections. The country still faces massive load-shedding, price-hike, joblessness and corruption. The PML-N and Pakistan Peoples Party have no political future.
Now the PTI will help people get out of these crises. PTI chief Imran Khan is fighting a battle to save the country,” he said. Sarwar said that the party would perform spectacularly during the next general elections.
He said that elected representatives should respect and value their workers. “There is no room for those who fail to acknowledge party workers,” he said.
