Member provincial assembly of Punjab, Hina Pervez Butt, has accused Prime Minister Imran Khan of favouring ‘corruption-tainted’ ministers of his team.
In a tweet, MPA Butt said: “I’ve been informed through sources that Imran Khan Niazi is facilitating ‘clean-chit’ to his ministers via NAB. Measures are also underway to get Usman Buzdar cleared.”
In August, Prime Minister Imran Khan reiterated his resolve that no NRO-like deal (National Reconciliation Ordinance) deal will be made with the corrupt opposition leaders. He maintained that there can be no compromise on accountability at any cost.
In an interview on a local news channel, PM Imran Khan said that he will betray the country if he grants NRO to corrupt opposition leaders. He said that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had appointed the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman by mutual consent in the name of a charter of democracy to escape accountability.
He maintained that the parties had brought the country on the brink of economic disaster. He also accused the opposition of blackmailing the federal government over the FATF issue only to get relief over the ongoing process of accountability in the country.
The premier said that the opposition wanted to abolish NAB. Accepting proposed points of opposition tantamount to pack up NAB, the premier added.
