Giving NRO will amount to treachery: Imran Khan
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan once again reiterated his opposition to giving a safe exit to opposition leaders.
“Unless they are held accountable, the country could not be put on track of progress. They just want to hear three words ‘NRO’ from me, which I will not utter as it will amount to treachery with the country,” PM Khan said, according to his Facebook page.
Addressing a gathering in Banu earlier this week, Khan said that he would not give NRO to anyone as long as he was alive.
The PM said that the current protest sit-in being staged by opposition parties was an attempt to force his government to issue NRO.
In a statement, PML-N spokesperson Maryum Aurangzeb took a dig at PM Khan over his remarks about NRO.
He said that Imran Khan had no authority to issue any NRO, saying he can only exercise his power to step down as Prime Minister.
