They do money laundering to stash their ill-gotten gains abroad, safe from domestic prosecution. Then they use their political clout to get NROs. That is how they kept their plundered wealth safe.”

He blamed them for stealing the country’s wealth, violating rights and hard earned money. He suggested that this is not even the whole picture and demanded Broadsheet to disclose the complete picture of the elites involved in the picture.
