ISLAMABAD, Prime Minister Imran Khan has made it clear that his government will not allow any NRO in any case, the Leader of the Opposition said. By not allowing the Senate to pass two important bills related to FATF, the opposition has proved that they are trying to sabotage Pakistan’s efforts to remove FATF from the gray list. In his tweet on social networking site Twitter on Tuesday, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the opposition parties in the Senate today did not allow the passage of the anti-money laundering and ICT Waqf Bill related to FATF. I have been saying this since day one.
Opposition leaders’ own personal interests and those of the country are at odds. As the accountability process tightens, the opposition seeks to shield democracy to protect its looting. The Prime Minister said that by blackmailing the NRO by amending the NAB rules, the opposition could put Pakistan on the FATF blacklist, which could destroy the country’s economy and increase poverty. The Prime Minister said that the opposition was threatening to overthrow the government if the NRO was not granted.
The Leader of the Opposition said that the government’s effective strategy to control the quaid-19, which was recognized internationally, was aimed at undermining it. They are so frustrated with securing money from corruption that they have tried to stop Parliament from doing its job and are now trying to sabotage Pakistan’s efforts to get out of the FATF’s gray list. “Let me make it clear that no matter what happens, my government will not allow anyone to do NRO. It will be tantamount to hurting the confidence of the nation. Those who have looted the national treasury will be held accountable,” he said. He said that Musharraf gave NRO to 2 political leaders which increased our debts and destroyed our economy, now there will be no NRO.
