Amendments in NAB ordinance was a difficult decision for govt: PM Khan
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Thursday that NAB amendments were a tough decision for the government as the media and opposition parties also criticized amendments.
Addressing a Thursday ceremony in Islamabad, he said the fear of the anti-graft watchdog curtailed the role of bureaucracy in development projects, adding that NAB’s main purpose was to isolate bureaucracy from NAB’s fear.
Therefore, the prime minister said that political decisions are made with joint consultation; the Parliament will be presented with the amendment in NAB’s laws.
Imran Khan also stressed improving economic stability governance in the country, adding that only with industrial growth can the country’s economy be improved.
PM Imran said the government has stabilized the economy of the country, and efforts are now being made to accelerate economic growth.
He said that 2020 is going to be the year of growth and development, and without wealth creation development is not possible. More than 40 sectors are connected to the housing sector, he said, and supporting this sector would help to create job opportunities.
