Government not to give NRO to plunderers at any cost: Ch Fawad

  • Fawad Hussain said that the chief of plunderers was sitting in London while those left behind were now chanting slogans in the Parliament.

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Thursday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government would not give National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) at any cost to the plunderers who looted the national exchequer.

Replying to questions during question hour in the National Assembly, the minister said that the members who were thumping desks in the House only just wanted to get NRO but Prime Minister Imran Khan would never give them NRO.

Fawad Hussain said that the chief of plunderers was sitting in London while those left behind were now chanting slogans in the Parliament.

The minister said the only purpose of chanting slogans was to withdraw cases against them and their leaders but the government was committed to arrest the plunderers.

He strongly condemned and expressed dismay over the PML-N legislators who used the book of the Constitution for noise during protest in the National Assembly.

Chaudhry Fawad said that Pakistan Standards and Quality Control Authority (PSQCA) ensured checking of quality of thirty-nine food and other consumer items as per international guidelines, practices and national standards.

He said that the organisation was monitoring quality of food products with quarterly inspections and open market sampling continuously as per international practices with transparency.

The minister said pharmaceutical products are not in legal purview of PSQCA and relevant authorities are mandated to control manufacturing of substandard pharmaceutical products.
