"Dar moreover pledged that the PML-N government would eliminate corruption from the country". Good very good lets start by putting NS in the dock. charges being Bank default cases pending for 20+ years. Judges who helped also will be prosecuted. The 2nd charge will be of money laundering for which Mr Dar will be the witness.
