KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan said on Tuesday that a "new NRO" is being prepared to save Pervez Musharraf from his high treason trial.

Talking to media, Imran Khan claimed that in the past Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari were allowed to go abroad through the NRO (National Reconciliation Ordinance).

The PTI chief said that he has no information about the health of the former military ruler, however, the court should decide the fate of Musharraf as per law.

Imran said that gone are the days when the country was divided for sake of protection of personal interests. "Delay in elections is better than holding rigged elections," he added. Imran Khan slammed Altaf Hussain's demand of Sindh's division. "'Sindh 1' and 'Sindh 2' sound like Indian movies 'Dhoom 1' and 'Dhoom 2'," he said.

Addressing party meeting in Karachi, he discussed preparation for local body elections, distribution of party tickets and Sindh's political development among other issues. While briefing the media after the meeting, Imran said that the PTI has decided to reach out to public.

"The politics of elite is being practiced in Pakistan," he added.

The PTI chief further said that moneymakers have ruined the country's economy after coming to power. "Opportunists go to the extent of changing parties just for the sake of power," he remarked. He said that by joining hands the citizens of Karachi have smashed the "idol of fear". He said the Karachiites must not consider themselves alone, and assured them of his regular visits to the provincial metropolis in future.
