ISLAMABAD: State Minister for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali said that Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) along with a bunch of other politicians was conspiring against Pakistan but people would reject and bury their conspiracies.
Speaking at a news conference here Thursday, he said no government existed in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and timber and mining mafias were ruling the province.
He said all stories of corruption and mismanagement in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would be brought before the people.
The two cousins were getting together to deteriorate conditions in Pakistan, he said, referring to Imran Khand and Dr Tahir ul Qadri.
Speaking on this occasion, PML-n MNA Daniyal Aziz said PTI had planned agitation against the government even before formation of TORs committee for a judicial commission on Panama papers.
He said the PML-N governmetn was known for strengthening economy and during its present tenure Pakistan has record foreign exchange reserves and lowest interest rates and inflation.
The international financial institutions including IMF, World Bank, Moody’s and Bloomberg recognised the economic achievements of Pakistan, he said
Daniyal said Pakistan had received emerging market status, adding Pakistan had achieved economic stability and curtailed energy shortages. He said last time the opposition wasted months by staging sit ins and protests.
Opposition instigated people and asked them not pay their taxes and bills and resort to civil obedience, he noted.
He said facts could not be hidden from the people, adding decision of the judicial commission on general elections, foiled attempts of PTI to create instability.
The opposition continued to tell lies about elections and now again these elements were getting together, he said adding it was evident that Imran Khan would continue his practice of lies.
Daniyal said name of the Prime Minister was not even mentioned in the Panama papers.
PTI leaders Imran Khan, Jehangir Tareen and Aleem Khan had offshore companies while PTI chairman was misleading about his flat in London.
He said PTI leaders were asking people to invest money in Pakistan while they themselves were buying assets abroad. There were financial irregularities in the accounts of Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital, he added.
Calling PTI Chairman a master of U-turns, he asked Imran Khan to give details of financial transactions of his company Niazi Services and other offshore companies.
