ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Economy Watch (PEW) on Tuesday demanded accountability of the business leaders, saying that economy cannot progress if people in important positions are not held responsible for their actions. The power struggle among national business leaders to rule FPCCI is unfortunate which has resulted in uncertainty, it said. The business leaders who were behind tens of millions of corruption in the construction of FPCCI capital office should come under inquiry, their assets must be scrutinised and they should be blacklisted, demanded PEW President Dr Murtaza Mughal. He said that promotion of the economy can be ensured after free and equal representation of businesspersons in trade bodies most of whom have been held hostage by families, lobbies and groups of businessmen. Different mafias have been plundering resources and betraying government as well as members of these bodies, he said.
