Opposition’s NA walkout as pressure tactic to seek NRO: PM Imran
ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan Tuesday termed the Opposition’s yesterday's walkout from the session of National Assembly as a pressure tactic to seek (another) NRO (National Reconciliation Ordinance).

On his twitter account, the premier said the Opposition wanted ‘to evade accountability for corruption’ in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) cases, which were not initiated by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

He further posted “In a Parliament that costs taxpayers billions yearly, yet another walkout in NA by the Opposition shows that this is the only function they intend to perform. These are pressure tactics to seek an NRO & evade accountability for corruption in NAB cases not initiated by PTI”.

“Does democracy mean immunity from corruption of democratically elected political leaders? It seems for them being elected is a license to plunder the country,” he added.
