He said the PML-N trying its best to get a National Reconciliation Ordinance for the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, but Prime Minister Imran Khan has clearly stated several times, that he will not give any NRO to corrupts.

Without taking the name of any country, the minister said, a King of a country asked PM Khan to allow Nawaz Sharif to leave, but he [PM Khan] said, ‘Sorry’.

Terming the upcoming 90 days, important in the country’s politics, he said the stories of the thieves will reach to their logical end.
