LATEST PAKISTAN

Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said National Accountability Bureau has been directed to continue an indiscriminate accountability process in the country.

During a meeting with anchorpersons in Islamabad today (Friday), the Prime Minister said accountability will be held across the board and without any prejudice or discrimination.

Imran Khan said if any member of the government is suspected of any indiscretion, they should also be held accountable.

The Prime Minister welcomed criticism of his government by saying it rather helps resolving issues.

He said media has every right to criticise the government, but it should give the PTI government at least three months before criticising its performance.

He promised that three months down the road, there will be a marked difference in the way the country is run.

Prime Minister said none of his cabinet members was appointed permanently and could be shuffled on the basis of performance.

Speaking with regard to Pakistan-US ties, he said his government would not accept any unjust demand by the United States.

Imran Khan said Pakistan also seeks peaceful relations with India, Afghanistan and Iran.

Prime Minister further vowed to cancel all agreements made against national interest.

Replying to a question, the Prime Minister said the purpose of using helicopter for travel to and from Banigala aims at saving citizens from the trouble of traffic holdups.
