PM says NAB recovered Rs484bn during PTI's govt

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday has said that during 2018-2020, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) recovered Rs 484 billion in contrast to only Rs 290 billion recovered during 1999-2017.

In a series of posts on social-networking platform Twitter, the premier wrote that the results can be achieved when government doesn’t protect criminals and allows accountability to work without interference

“In the last 31 months of our govt in Punjab anti corruption recovered Rs 220 bn, in contrast to dismal record of PMLN govt’s 10 yrs,” PM Khan wrote on his official Twitter account.

“State land worth Rs.192 bn recovered as compared to Rs 2.6 bn worth state land recovery under PMLN’s 10 yrs. Cash recovery is Rs 2.35 bn as compared to only Rs 430 mn during PMLN’s 10 yrs. Indirect cash recovery now stands at Rs 26 bn in contrast to zero during PMLN’s last 10 yrs,” he pointed out.

The prime minister said the same contrast is in the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) performance.

“Between 2018-2020 of our govt’s tenure NAB recovered Rs 484 bn in contrast to only Rs 290 bn recovered during 1999 – 2017,” he said, adding, “When govt doesn’t protect criminals & allows accountability to work without interference, results [are] achieved.”
