Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) President Maulana Fazl-Ur-Rehman has said that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is a controversial institution and it should be abolished, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday.

He said that he always pointed out that NAB is being used for retaliatory action against politicians and to defame them.

While talking exclusively to 24NewsHD TV channel in Dera Ismail Khan, the PDM chief said that NAB’s 22-year progress is in front of our eyes, adding that the bureau failed to create a legacy of unbiased and effective accountability. He said that NAB always acts as a tool for the victimization and character assassination of politicians.

He said that NAB has badly damaged the administrative structure and national economy of the country by harassing traders, industrialists, civil servants and police officials. “We have crushed the teeth of NAB up to some extent by amending NAB laws but we need two-third majority in the parliament to abolish it completely. He vowed to not use NAB against his political rivals.
