Asif Zardari breaks silence over the NRO deal

*ISLAMABAD - PPP Co Chairman Asif Ali Zardari breaks silence over the National Reconciliation Order.*

*He has denied being a beneficiary of the National Reconciliation Ordinance.*

“Muttahida Qaumi Movement leaders benefitted from it,” he said while addressing a press conference on Sunday. “I don’t know if Nawaz Sharif gained something from the ordinance or not.”

The controversial ordinance, which was issued by Musharraf, had granted amnesty to politicians and bureaucrats accused in corruption and money laundering cases filed between January 1, 1986 and October 12, 1999.

He added, “Islamabad is the city of conspiracies.”

The Pakistan Peoples Party leader criticised the policies of the ruling PTI-government. He remarked that the need of the hour is for all parties to work together. “The government can longer run the country,” he added.
