ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday once again ruled out reconciliation with the ‘corrupt’, saying that he cannot allow someone to hide his corruption while taking advantage of crisis in the country.

Talking to media persons here after the National Coordination Committee (NCC) meeting, the prime minister said that within next three or four days, the process of transferring cash to the needy families would start and the government might need more funds.

He clarified that the process would have nothing to do with political affiliation and the Corona Relief Tigers would also supplement the efforts on this count.

Referring to the enthusiasm and resolve of the nation, he witnessed, following the earthquake and floods, he said that the nation knew how to rise up to the crisis. About political reconciliation, he said that “this could not be applied to those, who wanted to exploit the crisis-like situation to their political leverage”.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan lashed out at Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) over its hate towards Muslims living in India and compared it with what Nazis did to Jews. “The RSS inspired BJP leadership in the 21st century openly speaking about the 200 million Muslims just as the Nazis spoke about the Jews,” tweeted PM Imran along with an interview of BJP MP Subramanian Swamy.

In the interview, Swamy claimed that most of the Indian citizens supported the ruling party for its hard-line approach on many issues. When the lawmaker was asked about the exclusion of Muslims in the recent laws passed by the country, the lawmaker said that the act cannot be faulted for that.
