ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz on Tuesday said a drama was staged during NAB appearance of Maryam Nawaz to detract the nation from corruption issue.

Responding to allegations by PML-N leaders after a clash between the party’s workers and police near the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) office in Lahore today, the minister said that instead of regretting the incident, the party’s vice-president Maryam Nawaz held a press conference.

“Today, Maryam Nawaz was called to answer NAB’s questions regarding receiving 200 acres of what was supposed to be government land in Raiwind and she brought a whole entourage with her,” he said, noting that Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar was also summoned by the anti-graft watchdog in the past but he never arrived with a crowd.

“Congratulations to the media wing of PML-N for a great drama,” he said, adding that today the “Maryam Nawaz group” held a press conference, and tomorrow the “Shehbaz Sharif group” will hold a briefing.

Censuring the PML-N leaders for trying to divert attention from the real issues of the country, Faraz said that all the people involved in looting the country would be held accountable.
