I am not selected, says PM Imran slamming opposition manufactured under military dictatorship

ISLAMABAD:Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday lashed back at the opposition’s use of the ‘selected’ slur for him, saying the parties accusing him today were themselves “manufactured in the nursery of military dictatorship”.

The remark was a reference to the PPP and PML-N founders’ allegedly close relationships with the military strongmen of their era.

Addressing the last sitting of the budget session in the National Assembly — in the absence of the opposition, which had walked out after a failed attempt to point out lack of quorum — the prime minister quoted former US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice as saying in her biography that former military ruler Pervez Musharraf had been asked to drop corruption cases against members of the current opposition.

The Americans collaborated to have the NRO (National Reconciliation Ordinance) signed because it was in their interest, the prime minister said.
