Murad Saeed claims seven PML-N leaders asked him for NRO
ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Communications Murad Saeed claimed that seven opposition members, belonging to the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N), approached him for relief in accountability cases.
Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly on Wednesday, MNA Murad Saeed said, “Seven of their [PML-N] members asked me for an NRO (a euphemism for relief in accountability cases) but their cases will proceed. No one will be given NRO.”
He further said that the first person who had asked him for NRO was “present in the Parliament at this time.”
Those who looted the nation’s money should be hanged at D Chowk,” while their assets “should be auctioned” at the very place, Murad Saeed said
Lashing out at the Opposition, the minister said, “Those who looted the nation’s money should be hanged at D Chowk,” while their assets “should be auctioned” at the very place.
The state minister complained that one session of the National Assembly costed millions of rupees but the Opposition members always attended it to repeatedly ask the same questions: “what are the charges against the PML-N?” and “why are PML-N leaders being arrested?”
“Rather than public issues, personal issues are discussed in the session,” the state minister pointed out, saying that the public sent us to the Parliament for resolving their problems.
Whoever plundered the country will be held accountable, Saeed asserted adding “it is my responsibility to not spare the corrupts in any condition.”
It is pertinent to note here that back in October, another PTI leader and minister, Faisal Vawda, had claimed that PML-N supreme leader and former PM Nawaz Sharif “made several requests for NRO”.
“Nawaz Sharif made several requests including one through another country and reportedly he (Nawaz Sharif) proposed an indirect payment to get an NRO,” Faisal Vawda had said.
