Inflation due to ‘thieves’ sitting in cabinet and NAB, says Khaqan Abbasi
Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday declared that the rampant inflation was due to the “thieves” sitting in the federal cabinet and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Talking to media persons in Islamabad on Tueday, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) claimed that it handed over Rs539 billion to the government while Finance Ministry said that only Rs6.5 billion have been received. “Looks like Chairman and Prosecutor NAB are weak in math”, he added.
The former prime minister said that the entire country is being supplied with gas through terminals installed by the PML-N government but the NAB prosecutor said that those terminals caused damaged to the national exchequer.
While lashing out at the government, Khaqan Abbasi said that PTI’s incompetence is behind inflation in the country. He also claimed that the country can head to next general elections anytime in a parliamentary democracy and now a people’s government will be formed.
