LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Chaudhry Manzoor has claimed that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has been given an NRO [National Reconciliation Ordinance] by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government and he will leave Pakistan by February.
Talking to reporters, Manzoor said that he had received this information from an official privy to the development.
“Nawaz Sharif will fly out of the country by February,” he claimed, adding that the Sharif family would remain silent on the issue.
While responding to the claim, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Ali Muhammad Khan said no one could ‘hijack’ the judiciary in the name of NRO. The Supreme Court and the Sindh High Court will not let NRO take place, he added.
“How could Imran Khan backtrack on his vision by giving any NRO. It won’t happen,” he added.
Opposition leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz had a few days ago said that the government was giving a wrong impression that the opposition leadership was looking for an ‘NRO’.
