‘NABgardi’: Bilawal says he knows who’s behind accountability drive

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that he was well aware of ‘forces’ behind the rejuvenated accountability drive, targeting political leadership of the country.

“We have been battling against them [those pulling strings] for the last three generations and now we we’ve become unstoppable,” he said in a tweet on Tuesday.

The statement comes hours after Bilawal’s spokesperson Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar launched an attack on the government, saying the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was targeting the PPP by becoming a tool of political victimisation of the incumbent government.

Refuting reports of noncompliance, he confirmed that the party chairman would appear before the anti-graft watchdog in Islamabad on May 17.

Bilawal and his father former president Asif Ali Zardari have been summoned in an ongoing investigation being conducted by the anti-graft watchdog. The Supreme Court forwarded a joint investigation team (JIT) report in the fake accounts scandal to NAB and directed it to probe money laundering of billions of rupees through fictitious bank accounts.
