Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Monday (April 1) while speaking to the media in Lahore, criticized the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Jahangir Tareen’s presence in official meetings and said that he will talk to Tareen.
“I will ask Tareen to think, whenever you sit in official meetings Marriyum Aurangzeb gets a chance to talk,” he remarked. “The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz raises questions that whether this is contempt of court. [The] PTI representative is mentally unable to accept this,” the foreign minister added.
While talking about most controversial issue of changing name of Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP), Qureshi said it “Changing its name will not be politically correct. The issue is not of the programme’s name but work and renaming it will be equivalent to making an issue out of a non-issue,” adding that Pakistan Peoples Party’s future cannot be seen in Punjab and ahead of the elections, no one expected the party to form the government in the province.
