Imran Khan is on the right track


Faryal Talpur and Asif Ali Zardari

It is a new Pakistan where rule of law will be equal for rich and poor people (“Zardari’s sister Faryal Talpur arrested in money laundering case,” July 15, Gulf Today).  In Pakistan there should be zero tolerance for the people who do corruption and make poor people’s lives miserable.  Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan, who won the last general election in 2018 with the slogan of cast-iron accountability across the board, is going on the right track to get rid of corrupt people in the country.

After nine months of Imran Khan’s government now good news are surfacing as the corrupt people are being arrested.

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s sister Faryal Talpur was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on the charge of money laundering through fake bank accounts and confined to her house in Islamabad on Friday. Earlier this week, Zardari was also apprehended by the NAB in the same case.

A five-member NAB team including female investigators visited the Zardari House in Islamabad, which was notified as a sub-jail by the NAB chairman “for the purposes of detention of accused,” according to a notification issued by the accountability watchdog.

Zardari was arrested on Monday after cancellation of his pre-arrest bail by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) in the fake bank accounts case, prompting a strong reaction from the opposition and sporadic protests by PPP workers in various parts of the country, mostly in Sindh.

People of Pakistan trust  Imran Khan that he will see there is total accountability across the board.  We saw a clear sign of this as Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf provisional minister from Punjab province was arrested on Thursday on the charges of corruption.
