Action against corrupt elements across board: Khawaja Asif

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Water and Power Khawaja Asif has said the action against corruption and corrupt elements is across the board and arrests were also made in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Talking to a news channel he said, raids of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) are not politically motivated, rather old corruption cases have been reopened.

If Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) is saying that it is being targeted, its not true, he said, adding, there is absolutely no political victimzation.

To a question he said, no department is taking any action at their own rather the action is being taken on the basis of cases which are now mature.

He further said, even if a leader of PML-N is found involved in corruption, he would not be spared and action against him will also be taken in accordance with the law.

The action against corrupt elements should continue without any discrimination, he added.
