Pakistan PM Imran Khan gives a strong blow to the JUI F Chief Fazalur Rahman
GILGIT: Prime Minister Imran Khan Friday lashed out at the opposition parties for staging the so-called ‘Azadi March' in the federal capital in a bid to topple the democratic government and categorically said neither he would resign nor any corrupt person would be given a National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).
Speaking at a public meeting here, he said the country could not progress until and unless the menace of corruption was rooted out and those, who had looted the country, were taken to task.
He said the nation knew all those people and also the reality of ‘Azadi March.
The corruption cases of all the ‘unemployed, political orphans, rightists and leftists', who had gathered in the federal capital, had surfaced and none of them would be spared, he added.
The prime minister said the opposition parties were too much confused and they had no clear agenda.
Bilawal Bhutto was participating in the march as a liberal while Mahmood Khan Achakzai, a strong opponent of Maulana Fazlur Rehman, was also attending it.
He came hard on Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and the opposition parties, saying gone were the days when the name of religion Islam was used for making money and to reach the corridors of power.
He was critical of Maulana's role as the Kashmir Committee chairman, who, he said, was a favourite of the Indian media, which was portraying him as an Indian national.
He said two opposition parties in their 10-year tenure had increased Pakistan's debt fourfold.
The total debt in first 60 years was $6 billion which reached $30 billion in last 10 tears.
