Shahzad Akbar said opposition criticized the government over inflation or price hike but they did nothing for the welfare of the people, adding that opposition only wanted to make an amendment in the NAB corruption law.

He said the NAB had recovered 390 billion rupees in just two years which was made possible just by implementing a policy that no NRO would be given to anybody in any circumstances.
