Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Farrukh Habib Tuesday said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz was seeking a national reconciliation ordinance (NRO) since day one to enjoy a luxurious life abroad.
Both Maryam and her father Nawaz Sharif were indulged in the politics of blame game and they were criticizing the country’s institutions to meet their ulterior motives and political gains, he said while talking to a private news channel.
The minister said former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, being an absconder, had deceived whole the nation by fleeing abroad in the wake of health facilities.

He said Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was no more as it was rejected by the people.
The opposition parties were perturbed by the economic turnaround as Pakistan’s export, agriculture and industry had improved to a great extent under the prudent policies of the incumbent government.
Farrukh accused both the previous governments of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) of leaving the economy in fragile condition besides bringing the national institutions to the brink of destruction through corrupt practices. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was revamping and restructuring them since day one it entered the corridors of power.
This statement itself defies the narrative of Maryam Nawaz. Rana Sana clearly hinting towards an NRO(despite the fact its nowhere on the horizon) and accepting that PMLN is looking for deal.
Means Maryam & Co. has finally adopted that "asan rasta jis ma boot saaf krny party hain" https://t.co/4SoFH70h9q

Replying to a question, he congratulated the entire nation on the passage of fiscal budget 2021-22 from the Parliament. The performance of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was much better as compared to the previous governments, he added.
