ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Tuesday said that NRO1 and NRO2 given to two crooked families – Sharif and Zardari families – and their associates are the main reasons behind four times increase in the country’s debt in a short span of 10 years.

The former prime minister, who has been a staunch critic of the NROs to corrupt politicians and baboos – first by the then military dictator Gen Pervez Musharraf, and now another relief by the coalition government of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) for its leadership in billions of rupees’ graft cases through amendments in laws – said, the NROs “cost the nation dearly”.

“The loot & plunder of these two crooked families & their associates increased our debt four times in ten years. NRO2 is even more shameful. Rs1100 billion corruption cases are being given immunity. Daylight robbery,” he tweeted.

In another tweet, the former prime minister also condemned the government’s move to seal Centaurus Mall owned by the Azad Jammu and Kashmir premier, who censured Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif for not highlighting the sacrifices of Kashmiris in a speech.

He said that the “mafia Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) actions suggested that there was a law of the jungle in Pakistan since the last eight months after the PTI’s removal through a no-confidence motion”. He further said that the action sent “negative signals to Kashmiris too”. Posing a question for the country’s judges, he asked if they were indeed the “upholders of the law”. PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry also took to his Twitter handle to comment on the event.

He claimed that Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir Sardar Tanveer Ilyas stood on his seat during PM Shehbaz’s speech and recorded a protest against Pakistan’s weak stance on Kashmir.

“After this event, first his [the AJK premier’s] car was stopped in Mangla, and today his business Centaurs Mall in Islamabad has been sealed,” he stated.
