He said the attitude of the government was quite disappointing.“The opposition prepared the ToRs after hectic efforts and it has many other options available if the government does not agree to these ToRs.

He said the committee would be able to finalise the ToRs only if the government shows seriousness.Sahibzada Tariq Ullah said this was the first time that Pakistan had got a chance to enact a law against corruption, but the government was moving at snail’s pace and using all delaying tactics. He said the government was trying to save the prime minister and his family.
