Federal Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb has lambasted PTI Chairman Imran Khan saying that the latter wants an NRO in his foreign funding conspiracy case, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the minister took a jibe at the former premier saying that on the one hand he held clandestine meetings with Americans and on the other, he spew venom against the US.

Ms Aurangzeb was of the view that Imran actually wanted an NRO in his foreign funding conspiracy. 

“It’s not the aim of Imran that the government should announce elections in the country. Rather he wants to quash cases against him,” she held.  

She lamented that Imran was blind to the miseries of people affected by floods. He is blindfolded by his lust for power, she added.

She observed that the real problem with Imran was his egoism, arrogance, narcissism, corruption and lust for power. 

“You (Imran) should decide what your problem is? Is it foreign conspiracy, Haqeeqi Azadi (real freedom), election commissioner, corruption, or NRO,” she inquired from the PTI chief. 

She accused the former premier of seeking NRO by hurling threats, bullying and swearing. “Imran wants NRO for Farah Gogi and Bushra Bibi,” Ms Aurangzeb maintained.

She wondered why Imran was so angry with the chief election commissioner. She demanded of Imran to disclose who provided guarantee about the CEC and why did he provide the guarantee. 

Saad alleges law shows leniency towards Imran 

Meanwhile, Federal Minister for Railways Saad Rafiq has said that Imran Khan regarded himself above the courts as first he abused the institutions then threw himself to their feet seeking forgiveness.

The minister rued that there was separate laws in the country: one for Imran Khan and the other for PML-N, PPP and nationalists. 

Rafiq expressed these views while talking to media in Sukkur. 

He said that it’s not the time to do politics, rather it’s time to extend help to the flood affectees. 

He said that the true nature of damage wreaked by the recent floods could be revealed when floodwater started receding.
