ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Monday said those who have plundered the wealth of the nation would be held accountable despite all protests.
Addressing the media in Islamabad, he said that state institutions should not be ridiculed and must be given respect.
The federal minister said the government has no role in the arrest of PML-N president Shehbaz.
“All institutions are working within their constitutional limits,” he added.
The information minister said that the hue and cry of the opposition could not put an end to the accountability process, adding that “they [opposition] are finding excuses to stage walkouts.”
The statement comes in the wake of PML-N leadership laying out the gauntlet to the government by announcing to launch a countrywide protest against the arrest of the party president at the hands of National Accountability Bureau (NAB).—INP
