‘Zardari’s offer is unacceptable’, says Fawad Chaudhry
ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Friday said that former president Asif Ali Zardari’s offer to ‘stop process of accountability and move forward’ was unacceptable, ARY News reported.
In his tweet, Fawad Chaudhry maintained that these types of conditions could not be accepted and added that leaders of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had sought NRO in their speeches in the National Assembly.
میثاق جمہوریت کی پہلی شرط ہے کہ لوٹا ہوا مال واپس ہو گا، زرداری صاجب کی یہ آفر کہ پچھلا حساب کتاب چھوڑیں اور آگے چلیں ناقابل قبول ہے۔ نون لیگ اور پیپلز پارٹی دونوں کے رہنماء اپنی تقریروں میں NRO مانگتے رہے اس طرح کی شرایط قبول نہیں کی جا سکتیں۔ #PTI
