Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar on Sunday said that an across the board and indiscriminate accountability process was continuing in the country.
It was evident from the arrest of Punjab’s Senior Minister Aleem Khan by the National Accountability Bureau, who had even resigned from his office to face allegations, he said talking to media-persons after inaugurating a water filtration plant installed by “Sarwar Foundation” here at the district jail.
Whenever he was called, Aleem Khan had presented himself before NAB, the governor added.
He said that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was investigating allegations against three ministers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, which had not so far been proved.
Chaudhry Sarwar said the Foundation was ensuring facility of clean drinking water and free hepatitis medicines to the inmates of all prisons in the country.
He said it had also initiated a unique step to for the release of those prisoners, who had been facing imprisonment due to non-payment of fine amount by paying their outstanding dues.
Skill training such as stitching of clothes was also being imparted to female prisoners by the Foundation so that they could earn their livelihood after their release, he added.
To a question, the governor said Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar, who belonged to a backward area, was a good choice of Prime Minister Imran Khan. He was running the administrative matters effectively with the consensus of his cabinet ministers and assembly members, he added.
He said the economic crisis was the biggest challenge and the incumbent government had overcome it without getting help from the International Monetary Fund. The problems being faced by the country today were because of the wrong economic policies and other decisions taken by the regimes during the last 70 years, he added.
