Prime Minister PM Imran Khan on Tuesday directed Speaker National Assemble Asad Qaiser to immediately accept the resignations of the opposition members as soon as received.
According to the details, the directions were given by the Prime Minister during the meeting with Speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser in Islamabad. The meeting decided not to come in the blackmailing of the opposition parties over the issue of the resignations.
“The resignations should be accepted within 30 minutes after verification,” the premier directed and added to initiate the with the two PML-N lawmakers who have submitted their resignations from the National Assembly.
PM Imran Khan has said that the opposition is playing its cards to get National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) and now it is the confusing matter. He asked that PDM vowed to resign from the assemblies, where are their resignations?
Back on December 6, during an interview, Imran Khan categorically stated that he will give up his office but will not give any NRO to the opposition.
Commenting on the opposition, PM Imran said that the parties have been blackmailing the government since day one to grant them amnesty.
He maintained that the NRO given to the opposition by former military ruler retired Gen Pervez Musharraf had had disastrous effects on the country, leading to an increase in debt liabilities.
“Our biggest problem is that we have debt and there is a deficit between what we earn and what we spend.” He added that the opposition wanted to be “forgiven”, but said that even the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) had said he would not forgive his daughter when it came to corruption.
