PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Wednesday lashed out at Prime Minister Imran Khan for suggesting in a national address that opposition leaders wanted a National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO)-like deal from him, saying the premier would be asking for an NRO in a few days himself.
Addressing a public gathering in Zafarwal area of Punjab’s Narowal district, where she also visited a teenaged boy suffering from cancer, Maryam said if her father, incarcerated former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, had asked for an NRO, “a 100 NROs would have fallen into his lap.”
“You keep talking about NRO [but] you have no authority to give an NRO,” she said, addressing Prime Minister Imran. “You will be going around asking for an NRO in a few days yourself.”
She said the talk of an NRO did not suit coming from a person “who is dependent on someone else for everything”, without naming anyone.
Maryam said the country was rapidly progressing and witnessing development in all areas until the PTI government took over from the PML-N government.
Criticising the budget unveiled by the PTI government on Tuesday, Maryam while referring to Prime Minister Imran said “a person who never earned through his hard work” could never know how a common man survives while making Rs15,000 a month.
