Futhermore, he stated that the opposition is endangering the lives of people by holding these jalsa’s in order to get an NRO. He further made it very clear that the opposition’s efforts will go into vain and they will not be granted any NRO. He wrote that, he does not want to risk the nation’s economy, which is doing very well at the moment, just so the opposition can satisfy their desperation of an NRO.

“I do not want to take measures like a lockdown that will start hurting our economy which at the moment is showing signs of a robust recovery. Unfortunately, the Opposition’s only goal is NRO at whatever cost to the lives of people & the country’s economy.”

These comments come in light of the opposition PDM movement which has said it will go ahead and hold its jalsa in Peshawar, today on Sunday, despite not getting permission by the provincial government.
