Imran accuses Gen Bajwa of giving ‘NRO-2 to thieves’

Former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday accused former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa of giving “NRO-2” — a reference to amnesty granted by former military ruler Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf – to incumbent rulers.

“The first NRO was granted by General Musharraf and the second one was given by the one who was in power,” he said while addressing a press conference in Lahore.

Speaking about the detained PTI leader, Senator Azam Swati, Imran condemned the treatment being meted out to him over his controversial tweets against the state institutions and military officials.

“He [Azam Swati] was arrested just for saying General Bajwa gave NRO to thieves… the entire Pakistan knows that he [Gen Bajwa] gave NRO-2,” he remarked.

Imran said in civilised societies a sitting senator cannot be “tortured or stripped naked” just for sharing his opinion. “You can deny his [Swati’s] claim,” he added.
