The key leaders of Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) has reiterated to hold talks with the opposition over the ongoing political rift, except National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).

Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has said the government is ready to hold dialogue with the opposition on every important issue except NRO.

In his recent statement, Science Minister Fawad Chaudhry said that the parliament is the best forum to discuss the national issues and the opposition should come in the parliament to resolve public problems.

The minister said the government and opposition should sit together to resolve the national issues including terrorism, extremism, and reforms in different sectors.

On the other hand, Adviser to Prime Minister on Accountability, Barrister Shahzad Akbar said that Opposition parties were trying to sell an old narrative for acquiring NRO, from the ruling party.

In an interview with a private television channel, he said the PTI government will never compromise on corruption and money laundering cases; hence Opposition’s efforts to get an NRO will badly fail.

He criticized PPP leaders for benefiting from NRO in past and owning assets in foreign countries.

It should be noted that the Pakistan Democratic Movement is holding a rally in Bannu today. The PML-N will be represented by Ahsan Iqbal and Ameer Muqam.
