The arrest of the contractor of Orange Train project by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has reportedly angered Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who on Tuesday lashed out at the accountability watchdog, a local news agency Online has claimed.

The news agency citing NAB sources said that NAB Lahore had arrested Amir Latif, the contractor whose construction company Kalson Private Limited is currently working on Orange Line Metro Train project as a Joint Venture Project (JVP).

The NAB officials arrested Amir Latif on charges of fake payments in another project, the NAB sources said.

The sources revealed that severe pressure was being mounted for the immediate release of Amir Latif but investigation was being conducted into his crimes in the interest of the nation. They said that had sought physical remand of the accused. Additionally, NAB has also started to investigate the construction of Raiwind road.

The provincial chapter of NAB has expedited operations against elements allegedly involved in corruption across the province. NAB has made it compulsory to submit the details of all the contracts and projects worth over Rs 500 million to NAB office.

NAB has uploaded a form on its website in this regard and it has been made compulsory for all government institutions to submit it in NAB’s office before awarding any development project.

On the other hand, NAB has also arrested five people allegedly involved in the embezzlement of Rs 850 million.

Meanwhile, NAB’s officials had to complete the inquiry of cases pending against PM Sharif by December 31, 2015. The new deadline for the completion of the inquiry, the sources claimed, has been set for March 31.

Sources said that the Punjab government had expressed dissatisfaction over NAB’s demand of submitting details of all the development projects worth over Rs 500 million, while PM Sharif had categorically warned that stern action would be taken if NAB did not reform itself.

After the statement of the PM against NAB, a high-level meeting is likely to be convened soon with NAB Chief Chaudhry Qamar Zaman in the chair to review the situation in Punjab.

ISLAMABAD –The arrest of the contractor of Orange Train project by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has reportedly angered Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who on Tuesday lashed out at the accountability watchdog. 
 
 
Dunya News citing NAB sources said that NAB Lahore arrested Aamir Latif, the contractor whose construction company Kalson Private Limited is currently working on Orange Line Metro Train project as a Joint Venture Project (JVP). The NAB officials arrested Aamir Latif on charges of fake payments in another project, the NAB sources verified. The sources revealed relentless pressure was being mounted for the immediate release of Aamir Latif but investigation was being conducted into his crimes n the interest of the nation. They said they have sought physical remand of the accused. 
Moreover, NAB has also begun to investigate the construction of Raiwind road. The provincial chapter of NAB has expedited operations against elements allegedly involved in corruption across the province. NAB has made it compulsory to submit the details of all the contracts and projects worth over Rs 500 million to NAB office. NAB has uploaded a form on its website in this regard and it has been made a necessity for all government institutions to submit it in NAB’s office before awarding any development project. On the other hand, NAB has also arrested five people allegedly involved in the embezzlement of Rs 850 million. According to sources, the arrested individuals include Mian Maqsood Akhtar, Rana Salim Akhtar, Pervaiz Iqbal, Chaudhry Ahsan Akhtar and Ijaz Hussain. The accused were involved in producing inappropriate profits for the Shah Abdul Latif and Company. 
 
 
Meanwhile, NAB’s official’s had to complete the inquiry of cases pending against PM Sharif by December 31, 2015. The new deadline for the completion of the inquiry, the sources claimed, has been set for March 31. Sources said that the Punjab government had expressed dissatisfaction over NAB’s demand of submitting details of all the developmental projects worth over Rs 500 million, while PM Sharif had categorically warned that stern action would be taken if NAB did not “reform” itself. 
 
 
After the statement of the PM against NAB Chief Chaudhry Qamar Zaman, a high level meeting was convened with NAB Chief in the chair to review the situation in Punjab. 
 
The sources reported NAB has also prepared a foolproof documentation for Metro Bus scandal, and has started to probe in to the matter. As per documents, the Punjab Government claimed the estimated cost of production of Metro Bus project to be 30 Billion but playing devil’s advocate NAB gave out its estimations i.e. 50 Billion spent on the project, thus coming down hard on the govt as well as putting the responsibility of being accountable. 
 
 
While on his visit to Multan Regional Bureau NAB Chief reviewed its performance on basis of annual inspection performed by Inspection & Monitoring Team. NAB) Chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry expressed his firm resolve to eradicate corruption by adopting zero tolerance policy against the menace throughout the country. 
 
 
Highlighting strengths and weaknesses of NAB the Chief appreciated the current performance and directed all officers/officials to work more vigilantly, honestly and diligently to eradicate corruption and corrupt practices.
 
 
It is highly expected, said the sources, that the latest Pak-Qatar LNG deal will also be speculated by NAB since the government has placed all eggs in one basket while binding Pakistan and its citizens into such a frightening contract of 15 years in which Pakistan will have to pay some five million dollars daily for fifteen years while politicians will get some Rs 400 billion in kickbacks if the deal to import LNG from Qatar on hefty rates is finalized.
 
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is likely to initiate probe into the bank accounts of Petroleum Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Secretary Arshad Mirza in connection with alleged scandal worth Rs 48 billion.
 
Sources in NAB told Online that the noose would further be tightened around the MD PSO Imran Sheikh and officers of Sui Southern Company. The petroleum ministry by violating the OGRA rules accorded LNG worth Rs 48 billion to the blue-eyed persons of PM Sharif which brings a severe loss to the national kitty. The sources further revealed that Irfan Siddiqui, Adviser to PM, said that the NAB was just trying to sabotage the LNG project as the secretary petroleum had already recorded his statement regarding this scam in NAB.
 
 
The Pakistan Economy Watch (PEW) on Friday had said politicians should not try to make fortune overnight by exploiting energy demand-supply imbalance in Pakistan. Abdullah Tariq, SVP of PEW revealed in a press statement, the government has bent all the rules and regulations for the import of 500 million cubic feet of LNG per day under a long-term contract. 
 
 
Secretary Petroleum Muhammad Ejaz Chaudhry got fired for resisting the Pak-Qatar covenant while efforts are on the move to “discipline” Oil Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) which has also opposed the deal, he further claimed. Tariq said that the ministers who are uneasy over letters from Ogra against LNG import plan to dissolve the department or bring under the direct control of the petroleum ministry. 
NAB has given a free hand to its Punjab Bureau and its officials to probe corruption cases and Orange Line Metro Train (OMT) is the top-notch scandal for the looming and inevitable enquiry, informed the sources. Since its inauguration till construction, OMT project has been under constant criticism and different political parties have expressed their disapproval of the project. The former CM Punjab, Chaudhry Pervez Elahi termed Orange Metro Line Project bigger than Nandipur Power Project, another mega scandal of PML-N, for making dollars and labeled it as an anti-employment and anti-environment project. 
 
 
 
Late in January, the locals of Samanabad, Lahore staged a protest against the construction of Orange Line Train project. The residents received 24-hour deadline from the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) to vacate their houses causing agitation amongst the protesters who burnt tyres, blocked the roads and removed the barriers put in place for the OMT project. The protesters claimed that they were being thrashed out of their homes without any compensation or alternate arrangements. 
 
 
 
The protesting residents said that the mismanagement in construction of the multi- billion project has turned their lives into hell. Whilst the contactors have not undertaken any plan to control the pollution and disorderly traffic prior to the start of construction, the protesters have also demonstrated against noise and dust pollution and traffic problems they face on daily basis due to the construction project of OMT.
 
 
 
However, a sum of Rs 1 billion has been paid by the LDA as compensation during one day and payment of more than Rs 2 billion has been made so far to the local residents in order to locate them in different residential areas. 
 
 
 
UN Special Rapporteur in the field of cultural rights Karima Bennoune, in a press release issued by the United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner, said government’s forced eviction of residents from their houses is completely unjustified as it does not have a resettlement plan. 
 
 
 
“The project will not only destroy physical sites but the ways of life that have been developed there, that people cherish and through which they express their dignity and identity,” she said

KILLER NAWAZ SHARIF’S HAVOC IN PAKISTAN: SAMAA TV: Exposes Rana Sanaulla Lies

Once Again Samaa News Expo Rana Sanaullah Lie… by zemtv

 

 

 

FAISALABAD: An opposition party worker was shot dead in Pakistan on Monday as hundreds of protesters clashed with riot police armed with water cannon and batons in the central city of Faisalabad.

The Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf (Pakistan Movement for Justice or PTI) party led by Imran Khan had vowed to paralyse the city as part of its efforts to topple the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, whom it accuses of poll-rigging.

The death has the potential to spark further violence and reinvigorate Khan’s movement, which had lost steam since his workers and followers of a populist cleric stormed the state broadcasting station in the capital in September.

TV footage showed PTI workers clashing with supporters of Sharif as well as with riot police, who baton-charged them as parts of Faisalabad came to a standstill.

Nabeela Ghazanfar, a spokeswoman for police in Punjab province, told AFP: “One protester has been killed and five others injured including two policemen.

“The Punjab police chief has issued strict orders not to let anybody take the law into their hands.”

A doctor in a Faisalabad hospital confirmed the death from bullet wounds and said five wounded were being treated.

A government spokesperson said authorities were searching for the shooter, though Khan blamed supporters of Sharif’s party for the attacks and lashed out at police.

“Peaceful protest is our right and it’s the duty of the state to provide security but the government tried to provoke our protesters,” the cricketer turned politician told reporters outside his home in Islamabad.

“Our workers were being shot at in the presence of the police,” he continued, adding he would travel personally to Faisalabad to lodge murder charges.

Political violence is relatively uncommon in Pakistan’s peaceful and prosperous Punjab province, though it has been on the rise this year.

In June police clashed with followers of populist Tahir-ul Qadri in the eastern city of Lahore, leaving 14 dead.

Followers of Khan and Qadri also clashed with police in late August after they joined hands to protest in the capital in an attempt to force Sharif’s ousting.

Three demonstrators were killed and hundreds injured on both sides when the protesters tried to storm the prime minister’s residence.

Both groups allege that Sharif rigged the 2013 general election that saw him sweep to power.

On Sept.1 the opposition groups briefly occupied the state broadcaster.

Since then the movement has lost some momentum but Khan has warned that he and his supporters will paralyse the country on December 18 if their demands are not met.
