ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that the difference in the Punjab Anti-Corruption Department’s performance during the PTI government and PML-N’s last ten-year rule in the province is clearly visible in the results the department has achieved so far.
In a series of tweets, PM Imran said “The difference in anti-corruption dept Punjab’s performance during PTI govt & PMLN’s 10 yrs is clearly visible in the results achieved so far. In the last 31 mths of our govt in Punjab anti-corruption recovered Rs 220 bn, in contrast to the dismal record of PMLN govt’s 10 yrs.”
“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 stated.
The premier further added that “The same contrast is there in NAB’s 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. When govt doesn’t protect criminals & allows accountability to work without interference, results achieved.”
