Urges opposition to stay united on national issues like Kashmir crisis and Pakistan’s exclusion from FATF’s grey list
ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Thursday that said no government has been blackmailed to this extent in the past as it has happened with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

He said the only interest of opposition is to go against the national interest just to save its vested interest. Imran Khan said that government will call joint session of the parliament next week for legislation on FATF's rulings.
Commenting upon NAB's fair and transparent role, he said 95 percent cases of opposition were registered during their own tenures. He added that even the Chairman of the Bureau was appoined by the mutual consultations of PML-N and PPP, Radio Pakistan reported.
The Prime Minister termed grant of NRO to the opposition tantamount to compromising PTI's manifesto.
Counting on his party's 2-year achievements, the Prime Minister said when we assumed the power, the major challenge for us was to save the country from bankruptcy. He said despite of coronavirus pandemic, we earned more revenues than our expectations during last month.
The Prime Minister said our stock market is showing positive indicators by means of the historic incentives announced for construction sector which gained the trust of investors.
