ISLAMABAD - PTI government has decided to amend the NAB laws to make it more effective and potent anti corruption watchdog.

The federal cabinet on Tuesday approved a taskforce to oversee reforms in civil law and National Accountability Bureau laws, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said.

Addressing a press conference after a cabinet meeting, Fawad said Law Minister Farogh Naseem will head the taskforce to bring about “effective” NAB laws.

The session was chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan at PM House to discuss a nine-point agenda.

In addition, committees have also been formed to oversee formation of a new Southern Punjab province, FATA, as well related to creation of jobs and housing. The South Punjab committee comprises Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and PTI leader Khusro Bakhtiar, and will also contact Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz in the regard.

In addition, the committee on FATA will be responsible for overseeing matters related to the former agency’s merger with Khyber Pakhtunkwa.

A taskforce has also been created to ensure implementation of a woman’s share in inheritance, Chaudhry said.
