MULTAN - Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Hussain Qureshi said Sunday that the process of accountability would continue as the government would not give any NRO (National Reconciliation Ordinance) to the plunderers of national wealth.

Prime Minister Imran Khan would not offer NROs to the corrupt elements facing the accountability, he said while talking to reporters after laying the foundation stone of Albadar Park here in the Shah Rukn-e-Alam Colony. 

Commenting on PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto’s reaction on the arrest of Khursheed Shah’s son Furrakh Shah, Qureshi said everybody had a right to fair trial. However, nobody would be allowed to create obstacles in the accountability process.

To a question about Kulbhushan Jadhav, the minister said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) regime had mishandled the Indian spy’s case, while the present government was taking measures on the recommendations of International Court of Justice (ICJ). The opposition should act sensibly and understand nefarious designs of India, he added.

To a question about Ahsan Iqbal’s criticism regarding low defence budget, Qureshi suggested the PLM-N leader to better go through the budget document to know about the facts.

About the District Coordination Committee’s working, he stated that the DCCs were established at all the districts following the direction of Prime Minister Imran Khan with the mandate to monitor development projects regularly. The DCCs would meet after 15 days to review development projects, he added.
