THE newly-appointed National Accountability Bureau chairman has directed all director-generals of their respective regional bureaus to listen to complaints of corruption and corrupt practices at respective regional bureaus on the last Thursday of every month between 2pm and 4pm.
The NAB chairman's decision about the redressal of the public issue is not logical and rationale. Being a government functionary of the country's anti-corruption agency, he is not authorised to pass order to resolve the problems of the common people. His duty is to investigate white collar crimes and this takes more than a year to complete.
An order would not be enough to resolve the grievance of white-collar crime. Such practice is a wastage of time and resources.
To address public grievances is the responsibility of the elected members more particularly, the prime minister, federal ministers and chief ministers and provincial ministers.
