Judges of the Supreme Court were purchased in past, whereas, NAB [National Accountability Bureau] was established by the two political parties [Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP)].”
PM Khan said, “Democracy is not running properly since our government is formed. Democracy runs when two different theories are present in the Parliament.”

PM Khan clarified again that he will not given them another National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) under pressure and the blackmailing tactics adopted by the opposition parties. I have not generated cases against opposition.
“Our country was burdened under hefty loans due to two NROs. N-League grabbed rulership of the country for two times and it sent Asif Ali Zardari behind the bars. Nawaz Sharif was awarded NRO during Pervez Musharraf’s tenure.”
“Musharraf had awarded first NRO in 2002. In 2008, leaders of both parties had arrived back and signed Charter of Democracy. Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif had appointed NAB chairman.”
The premier said that Zardari and Sharif had decided to rule the country for five year after getting turns.
He added, “Rs24,000 billion loans were taken by the previous governments as it was not the Charter of Democracy but the Charter of Corruption.”
