Sharif brothers won’t get NRO: Sheikh Rasheed

Awami Muslim League (AML) President Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad has on Monday said that Sharif brothers will not get a National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) this time even if they visit all Arab countries.
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif are present in Saudi Arabia these days amid speculations of another NRO. Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique, Senator Asif Kirmani and Federal Minister for Commerce and Textile, Muhammad Pervaiz Malik are also in Riyadh.
PML-N leaders’ dash to Saudi Arabia has fuelled many speculations back in Pakistan. Sheikh Rasheed said that the nation will soon come to know about the future, and advised to wait.
Member National Assembly (MNA) Jamshed Dasti said that accountability of dishonest people is going on in the country, and the offenders must not get parliament’s support. Corrupt politicians should be hanged, he demanded.
Dasti talked to media outside the Supreme Court (SC) and said his lawyer will appear before the court in case pertaining to Election Act 2017. He said he wants the supremacy of rule of law and strong institutions in Pakistan.
