LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Vice Chairperson Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Wednesday called on Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) to clarify its stance on statements made by party member Shehla Raza regarding a silent clause in the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).

Raza had reportedly claimed that under the NRO, it was guaranteed that there will be no military intervention in Pakistan until three general elections were held in the country. She had further said that United States, Britain, UAE as well as then ISI chief Ashfaq Pervez Kayani were guarantors of this agreement.

Qureshi, while speaking to the media in Lahore, said Raza’s latest revelations were very serious and have caused a political storm. “I fail to understand this; she should explain herself further,” the PTI leader demanded.

Commenting on the specifics of the agreement, Qureshi mockingly questioned if the leaders who were part of the deal found it acceptable to have martial law imposed after the said third election was held.

Army is badly exposed!

Dr. Asad Sadick, Germany | 7 years ago | Reply I think and its my humble opinion that there is no substance in SRs statement. It may not be present in the NRO and this is the reason S.M.Qureshi has no clue about it nor anyone else. He is not dumb, as a matter of fact was a stalwart of the then PPP.
