ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information Pervaiz Rashid on Saturday stated that if Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan took the offshore companies’ issue to the Supreme Court (SC) then his application will be rejected as Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif’s name is not in the Panama Papers.
While addressing the media, Pervaiz Rashid stated that Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) leader Dr Tahirul Qadri were still wandering on the streets, adding that the government has been listening to Qadri’s statements since a long time.
“Certain individuals intend that September be remembered as a cruel month but it (September) will bring more success for PML-N,” the Information minister said. Pervaiz Rashid said that the government shall complete its tenure because the PM was putting the country on the path towards prosperity.
Pervaiz Rashid lambasted Baloch liberation leader Harbiyar Marri by stating that the Baloch youth reesponded to Marri’s statements regarding Balochistan’s separation by celebrating Pakistan’s Independence Day in the best possible manner and by raising slogans of Pakistan Zindabad.
