ISLAMABAD: Minister for Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mehmood has said that negotiations should be held between the government and opposition on economic challenges faced by the country.
Talking to a private news channel, he said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was ready to sit with opposition for the sake of national interest.
To a query, he said that the present government had no link with the cases registered against Opposition Leader in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif, adding that investigation into Shehbaz’s cases started during the time of the previous government.
He said that the decision of arresting the accused in different corruption cases was of National Accountability Bureau (NAB), not the government.
Shafqat Mehmood said that those who looted the public money should be punished and they would not be given any National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).
