SUKKUR  - Federal Minister for Religious Affairs Khursheed Shah on Sunday criticised Chairman NAB's statements, stating that if any politician is involved in corruption then the Chairman should call his name.

Talking to media persons after addressing the ceremony of the distribution of CNG rickshaws under Benazir Employment Scheme here, he said that the politicians should have been named by the NAB Chairman instead of giving a general statement.

He said decision to block services of mobile phones and ban motorcycle riding in Karachi and Quetta was taken by Rehman Malik in his personal capacity and had nothing to do with the government.

He said that action should be taken against any group or party involved in Karachi violence.

He said the government welcomed the Election Commission's decision to hold upcoming general elections under the supervision of judiciary. He advised that police, Rangers and military should also be deployed for external supervision during the elections.
