PML-N not doing any NRO: PM’s aide



ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Media Affairs Dr Musadik Malik on Friday said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) was not doing any National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).

Commenting on the PML-N leaders’ visit to Saudi Arabia during a programme on a private news channel, the aide said there were two holy mosques and that the leaders including former prime minister Nawaz Sharif made the tours in their personal capacity to perform Umra.

Expressing concerns over the changing behaviour of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Musadik said the party had a strong belief in democracy.

The people had observed the delaying tactics and changing attitude of the PPP during the process of delimitation bill in the Senate, he said.

To a question regarding the collaboration of the PPP, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Tahirul Qadri, Musadik said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had been facing such tactics in the past. “The policy of sit-in or protest demonstration adopted by political parties, including the PTI, could not affect the PML-N,” he said.

To another question about Qadri, he said that everyone knew about the activity and special visits of the PAT chief here.
