Talking to the media after NAB hearing, the CM said that on Tuesday investigation session was held in friendly environment. He said he had invited the NAB investigation team to visit Thar. He said that the chief justice in a hearing on Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report had ordered the removal of his and Bilawal Bhutto’s names from the Exit Control List (ECL). He said that JIT had included his name without any solid reason.

Replying to a question, he said NAB’s most questions related to Nooribad power plant and Thatha and Dadoo Sugar Mills and he satisfied the NAB team on it.
