Will go to last extent against corruption, declares PM Imran Khan
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he would go to the last extent against corruption and would not succumb to any pressure.
He was talking to senior journalists at PM House on Saturday.
The prime minister said that Shehbaz Sharif was trying to become Nelson Mandela. “Talks are underway to settle terms and conditions with the IMF. It is clear that the government is going to the IMF,” he said, adding that the government had no option except to get the loan.
He said that they had so much proofs against the looters that they cannot go scot-free. “These people are afraid of accountability and want an NRO,” he said.
He said that problems are being created for the government at the administrative level as bureaucrats belonging to the previous government are sitting elsewhere. “Political bureaucracy and the police are marring our work,” he said.
Imran Khan said that the circular debts would have swelled if the power rate was not increased. “The next few months will certainly be tough and later Pakistan will be in a better position,” he maintained.
He said that the opposition is not a real opposition. “They all have united to protect their properties,” he added.
The prime minister said that his meeting with the NAB chief was a routine matter. “The opposition did politics over the issue. We are ready to introduce reforms in the NAB laws. The government is not satisfied with the performance of the NAB,” he said.
