Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday reiterated his vow that he will never NRO to corrupt people.

“They are wrong if they think they can pressurise me (Imran Khan), I will leave this post but will never betray the country by giving [the Opposition] an NRO”, said the premier while talking to a private TV channel.

The PM said no hurdles will be created in the way of the opposition to hold the gathering in Lahore but those taking the law into hand will be taken to task.

PM Khan said given the increase in the cases of Coronavirus in the country, he cancelled his public meetings.  He said our focus is now on ensuring compliance of Covid related SOPs. Educational institutions have been closed as well as the indoor restaurants.

Responding to a question, Prime Minister Imran Khan said the education system is being mainstreamed by introducing a uniform syllabus from next year.

The premier said students of class eight and matric will be taught Seerat un Nabi (SAW) subject. He said Al-Qadir University which will be completed next year will promote research on the life and teachings of holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wa Sallam Khatim un Nabiyeen as well as Sufism.

The Prime Minister said the religious seminaries have also agreed to teach contemporary subjects to their students.
