Deal and clemency not in powers of selected PM: Marriyum

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: Former information minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Marriyum Aurangzeb has criticized that striking a deal and providing clemency is not on the powers of selected prime minister.

She claimed that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s sister Aleema Khanum has already received a National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).

“Listen with open ears Khan! Opposition will no take any dictation. We are not afraid of threats,” she asserted.

Marriyum termed the speech of PM Khan at Balloki Headworks in Nankana Sahib ‘language of D-Chowk’.

While demanding a resignation from the premier, she told that a consultation meeting of united opposition will be summoned.

“The parliament is not a slave to Imran Khan’s will and orders. His government and team have failed completely. To hide this, they are raising slogans of corruption, deal and NRO,” the former information minister maintained.

“Imran Khan is answerable to parliament and not the parliamentarians to him. His authoritarian and fascist thinking will not run for longer,” she warned.

Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Saturday asserted that ‘two historic Non-Reconciliation Ordinances (NROs)’ offered to Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari’ were responsible for the current economic crisis in the country.

Reportedly, he addressed the general public at the “Plant for Pakistan” campaign at Balloki Headworks in Nankana Sahib.

He rubbished rumors that the federal government would make any deal with the opposition under the NRO by stating “NRO implies forgiving criminals.”

He stated that Musharraf’s NRO to former premier Nawaz Sharif and Zardari’s NRO in the Swiss bank accounts case are the reasons for the country’s rising debts.

“It will be treason, if the government gives an NRO to anyone,” he said.
