PM Khan cannot award NRO - Shahid Khaqan Abbasi
Lahore: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Monday claimed that Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan does not possess the capacity to award NRO [National Reconciliation Ordinance] and that Khan will require the same [in future].

The former premier was addressing a presser here in Lahore along with other PML-N leaders.

Abbasi urged government to immediately convene a session of National Assembly [NA] to discuss hike in petroleum and gas tariffs. Abbasi also urged government to brief lawmakers on extension in military courts.

Abbasi revealed that he held telephonic conversation with Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Syed Khursheed Shah on appointment of members of Election Commission of Pakistan [ECP].

Accusing PM Khan of violating the Constitution, Abbasi alleged that incumbent government has paralyzed the parliament.

He added, “Pakistan cannot afford ongoing situation to continue for another five years”.
