If General Musharraf hadn’t given the Sharif family an NRO in the Hudaibiya case, today there wouldn’t be so much money laundering in Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan told Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry.

During a meeting on Sunday, he said money laundering in Pakistan would have come to an end if it hadn’t been for the NRO. He said that unfortunately, this was being used as a model for other money laundering cases.

The premier said the government must look into the $60 billion taken as loans in the past 10 years by the previous governments. He said in the last 10 years those loans were taken and the leaders lined their pockets.

The money was sent abroad via front men and was then brought back for the culprits to use, he said. This is the same model that has come forward in the Nawaz and Zardari cases, he told Chaudhry.

He told the information minister that the government must find out who has lined their pockets at the cost of the people.

The regulations introduced against by the present government against benami (without name) accounts are helping curb money laundering, said PM Khan.

    What do you call people who live on iffs and butts ? I think we should let IK and Fawad Chaudry live in the past and appoint another PM who can live in present and think of the future of Pakistan.

      People with iffs and butts are called Thinkers. And in this case, we have thinkers thinking about the public rather than themselves. And thinking is important before acting.

    And what do you call the arrangement made for Aleema Khan ?

      You fool, Aleema Khan did not bring loss to the national treasury.

    This nation waited 40 years to break the shackles of corruption by PMLN and PPP but cannot wait 7 months of IK government to start things to right path.

    Ungrateful and ignorance at its height. You deserve PMLN and PPP.

    I was in favour of PTI. My family voted for imran Khan but it does not mean we should not criticise him when his team is not playing up to the mark. We ( Pakistani) should stop defending the party we voted for even if they are not performing well, we would only become puppets like PPP & PML N jiyalas. One thing I learned from past is to not trust any politician so I wont blindly trust Imran Khan’s team. We should think what is good for ourself and Pakistan.

      Then make sure you are capable of making sound judgements and determined to go in-depth on an issue before coming to a conclusion.
