PDM is finished: PM

 Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday that the opposition Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is over and does not pose a threat to his government.

Speaking while presiding over a meeting of his spokesmen, the prime minister declared that the entire opposition movement was going to win a National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) that he would never deliver.

According to Geo News, the prime minister observed that the entire opposition came together under one umbrella as soon as they were held accountable. He said the accountability process will continue without any pressure.

He said the government had put the country's economy on the right track and that this year the government will focus on improving its performance and execution.

During the meeting, Imran Khan ordered his spokesmen to highlight the government's economic achievements and respond to the opposition with the same coin.

The prime minister stressed that no society can progress without accountability. He said that previous governments continued to plunder the national treasure, while the current government was making progress in developing the country, the prime minister added.

Speaking of the opposition holding demonstrations amid the coronavirus pandemic, the prime minister said that the PDM was gambling with people's lives.

Meanwhile, Imran Khan said that when institutions function independently without political interference, the nation benefits as he shared the recoveries made by the National Accountability Office (NAB) and the fight against corruption.

The prime minister tweeted: "Total NAB recoveries in 2019 and 2020 amount to 389 billion rupees compared to the previous 10-year (2008-2018) recoveries of 104 billion rupees."

“These were 10 years of the Middle Ages under corrupt rulers. Once again, Anti-Corruption in Punjab recovered Rs206 billion in 27 months compared to just Rs3 billion in the last 10 years under corrupt rulers. These are clear indications that accountability works when institutions are independent, ”he said.

Meanwhile, Defense Minister Pervaiz Khattak met with Imran Khan.

The meeting discussed in detail the public order situation in the region. They also discussed the violations of the ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) and its negative impact on the region.
