Opposition parties resorting to blackmailing, pressure tactics: PM


GB, Nov 02 (TNS): Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the opposition parties are holding the protest march only to protect the amount they looted and plundered over the years.

Addressing a public gathering in Gilgit, he said our enemies are very happy over the protest march of JUI (F) and the Indian media is so happy that it is giving a wide coverage to JUI-F march.

He said the opposition is resorting to blackmailing and pressure tactics. He, however, made it categorically clear that they will not be given any NRO.

Imran Khan said those who plundered the national exchequer, which severely damaged the country’s economy, will have to face accountability.

He said half of the total tax collected last year was paid in payment of the interest on loans taken by previous governments.

The Prime Minister regretted that the name of religion is used in politics to make money by some elements. He, however, said that people now fully understand the motives of such elements.
