PDM March plan: PM harps on no-to-NRO mantra

Prime Minister Imran Khan Monday presided over a meeting of government representatives to mull over the ongoing campaign launched by an alliance of opposition parties.
For a couple of months, the 11 opposition has been on a concerted campaign titled Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) to topple the government that got into power by ‘unfair means’ while the PM says they wanted relief from the ongoing accountability.
Addressing the participants of the meeting, Imran said again that NRO offer is out of the question. “Make it clear, no NRO will be given,” the premier stressed, adding that all the public meetings under the PDM failed to deliver.
He continued: “Dictatorship rules the roost in the opposition parties. Their demands are undemocratic. One inherited headship while the other was made by dad. The people of Lahore are well-aware of politics. They won’t accept their narrative. The Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf succeeded in taking them to the streets after 14 years,” he said recalling his anti-corruption campaign.
The PDM held its sixth power show at Minar-i-Pakistan in Lahore and announced long march toward capital Islamabad. PM Imran Khan termed the Pakistan Democratic Movement's (PDM) Lahore public meeting pathetic.
He tweeted: "All this just to blackmail me into giving them an NRO to save their looted wealth.” Let me once again reiterate: I will never give an NRO (National Reconciliation Ordinance). There will never be an NRO from my government no matter what tactics the looters devise."
