Opposition’s 15 questions only target PM: Saad Rafique


LAHORE: Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique on Saturday said that opposition parties have only targeted Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif in their 15 questions.


While addressing a ceremony at a school in Lahore, Saad Rafique lashed out at the opposition leaders and clearly said that the TORs made by only one person would not be accepted.

He said only PM Nawaz was hit in the TORs formed by opposition.

During the speech, Saad Rafique termed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan as ‘unbalanced personality’ and ‘ignorant’ of the politics.

He also advised Khan to focus on the development of his own province Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and stop pulling the legs of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders.

The federal minister also called Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari as ‘fledgling politician’ and suggested him to first invetsigate the corruption in Sindh.

He also claimed that the ruling party would be strong enough to face any conspiracy and allegation.

Earlier, the committee formed to finalise TORs demanded the government to establish a commission using a presidential ordinance. Participants of the meeting agreed that international forensic audit experts should be tasked with Panama leaks probe.

Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed said that the committee has agreed on a total of 15 points. He said that six parties are in favour of demanding the Prime Minister to resign while two are against it.

Opposition agreed on giving judicial commission three-month time period to probe Panama leaks against Sharif family.
