No NRO to corrupt politicians: PM

TORKHAM, Sep 18 (APP):Prime Minister Imran Khan Wednesday reaffirmed that his government would not give any NRO (National Reconciliation Ordinance) and safe passage to any corrupt politician and the accountability process would continue till the recovery of looted public money from them.

Addressing a press conference here after inaugurating round-the-clock functional Torkham Border Terminal, he said elimination of corruption was imperative for sustained progress and development in the country.

“The country cannot make progress unless we eliminate the menace of corruption,” he said.
He said Pakistan was burdened with Rs 24,000 billion loans during the last 10 years due to two NROs given by former president Pervez Musharraf to the corrupt politicians.
