No chance of NRO, won’t let corrupt off the hook: PM Imran

Ruling out any possibility of striking a deal similar to NRO, Prime Minister Imran Khan has vowed not to let those involved in corruption off the hook.

Addressing the first news conference after coming into power, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief said that his government was being criticised for political victimisation of the opponents, but the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is an independent institution.

“If NAB was a subordinate department of my government, I would have sent at least 50 people to jail by now … more arrests will soon be made,” he added.

Khan said people who are protesting against PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif’s arrest by NAB in Ashiana Housing scam are in fact shouting to evade their own arrests. “No matter how much they shout in parliament, stage sit-ins and demonstrations, we will not spare corrupt people … we’ll catch them one by one and there will be no NRO,” he remarked.

Earlier, Prime Minister Imran, while chairing a meeting of Punjab cabinet, said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government will remove flaws in the existing local government system to serve the people in the best possible way.
