NRO beneficiaries should follow Saeed Mehdi's footsteps: Sharif

Staff Report

ISLAMABAD: All NRO beneficiaries should follow the footsteps of Saeed Mehdi said the PML-N Chairman Nawaz Sharif while talking to the media Friday.

Punjab chief minister's advisor and former bureaucrat Saeed Mehdi resigned after his name was published among NRO beneficiaries.

Mehdi was alleged to be involved in corruption as a chairman of the Capital Development Authority (CDA). He rejected all the allegations against him as baseless. Mehdi said that he will not get any government position until his name is cleared out of such allegations.

Sharif also said that the media should give the NRO argument a better angle. He said, “Debating and arguing suppress the real issues.”

“The country faces issues other than politics,” he said. “If the constitution is followed, then the democracy will not face any threat.”

He further said,”The real problems are different and they are not given any attention. The establishment of peace and economic success should be our priority. Alongwith the NRO beneficiaries, the names of those persons should also be exposed, who got their debts written off.” He said that he told the Prime Minister the same thing in Nawabshah, and asked him to get the money recovered. Those who usurped land should also be held accountable.

He also said that things are no better than how they were in the Musharraf era. There needs to be more work done to get agreement on the Balochistan package.

“Although the government and the Prime Minister want progress, until Akbar Bugti's case is not solved, the Balochis will not be pacified,” he said.

He also said that the problem of the missing persons is also very crucial. SAMAA
