Khaqan Abbasi says those asking for and those giving NRO are both cursed

NAROWAL: Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that both the person asking for and the person giving an NRO are cursed.

“Those who are asking him [Imran Khan] for an NRO are cursed and those giving the NRO are cursed,” Abbasi told reporters.

The PML-N leader also spoke on accountability stating that a minister of Prime Minister Imran Khan had stolen money and fled, while another was accused by the prime minister himself of gas theft.

“I am saying Imran Khan should do accountability and we will also conduct his accountability. We want accountability in the country. The biggest tax thief in the country is Imran Khan.”

Abbasi was also critical of decisions to remove the finance minister, FBR chairman and State Bank of Pakistan governor.

He added that all intuitions need to stay within their constitutional limits and work for the betterment of people.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi warned that Imran Khan was on a path of destruction. He added that if things continued this way politics would be left behind and the people of Pakistan would come forward. “Then there will be a danger once again of dictatorship in the country.”
