PM Imran Khan threatens to quit government

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday made it abundantly clear that he would prefer to step down than to giving NRO to corrupt politicians.

Chairing a federal cabinet meeting here, which reviewed key national issues and made decisions on certain matters, including discussion and presentation on the Anti-Rape Investigation and Prosecution Bill, Imran said he allowed the airing of PML-N leader Muhammad Nawaz Sharif’s speech to know the severity of his illness.

The cabinet approved rationalization of pricing of 94 life-saving and other important drugs to ensure their availability and quality control. Advisers Babar Awan and Shahzad Akbar briefed the cabinet on how to control the menace of rape and ensure protection of women and children.

The prime minister directed that the bill be immediately brought before the Cabinet Committee on Legislation.
