Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League have expressed reservations over formation of the Inquiry Committee on Broadsheet matter.
According to the details, the two main opposition parties rejected the formation of the Inquiry Committee on Broadsheet led by Justice (retd) Sheikh Azmat Saeed.
PPP Senator Nayyar Hussain Bukhari said probing the Broadsheet issue amounted to befooling people.
Bukhari said since Broadsheet was not an ordinary case, but a serious one, therefore PPP wanted a transparent inquiry into it.
Senior PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal said the appointment of Justice Azmat Saeed proved that Prime Minister Imran Khan is trying to protect the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and himself.
