PML-N parliamentary leader in the National Assembly Khawaja Asif on Monday urged Speaker Asad Qaiser to constitute a parliamentary committee to probe the controversy that was caused by some leaked audio and video clips involving National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman retired Justice Javed Iqbal.
Speaking in the parliament, Asif questioned the government’s role in “trapping” the NAB chairman to “save its own people”.
Asif said that most of the people facing NAB cases in are in the opposition an pointed out that references against members of treasury benches are also pending.
“Government has become alert so a trap was set against NAB chairman. Jahangir Tareen has shares in the channel that broke the news [of the leaked tapes],” he insisted
“Someone has said this rightly, time changes. Power has a shelf life. Trust me when I say this, I have been on both sides of the house.”
