In recent tweets, the minister said that the party agreed that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s success was imperative for the democratic system to be successful in Pakistan.

The federal minister’s tweets came to post his indication of an ongoing ‘cold war’ between elected and non-elected members in the government. “I still believe that our [government’s] political decision-making is weak. Important decisions are taken and we are not even aware. There is a need to improve how decisions are made,” said Fawad in a private TV channel interview.

Asserting in a tweet, the minister said that if we take a look at where other countries, who were granted independence along with Pakistan, were standing today, we can realise what the country has lost and what it has gained in the time.

In a subsequent tweet, Fawad said that civil institutions in Pakistan had been “completely destroyed”, adding that nepotism could be found in any institution which was reviewed.

He added, “the principles of recommendations and merit were set aside and these institutions were made a joke.”

Fawad further added that he does not have any “hope” of these institutions getting better in the coming one or two years. The premier had inherited a shattered system, which he was trying to rebuild, he said.

His comments come in wake of PM Imran taking notice of the appointment of state minister and PTI leader Zartaj Gul’s sister to the National Counter Terrorism Authority (Nacta). “This was against the ethics of PTI, which has always opposed nepotism,” said Special Assistant to the prime minister, Naeemul Haq, on Sunday.
