The opposition parties have reiterated their resolve to stand firm on Senate Deputy Chairman Saleem Mandviwalla’s privilege motion against National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Javed Iqbal, it is learnt reliably.

Sources said the opposition parties that joined hands against the government will hold a special sitting to mull over the matter of accountability at the Committee Room No 1 of the Upper House of the Parliament on December 30.
