Senior leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) including former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi , former defence minister Khawaja Asif and Ahsan Iqbal while addressing après conference in Islamabad, once again lashed out at PTI government and termed it as threat to the Pakistan’s stability.
Abbasi said, “You said that you will accumulate a revenue of Rs190 billion and that people will shower taxes after looking at you. You claimed that people trust you and you collect funds, but in the first quarter after you assumed power the deficit rose by Rs100 billion.” “This [PTI] government is the least popular in the popularity vote,” he added. “In the Naya Pakistan film they promised people heaven but pushed them into hell.”
“We spent Rs122 billion to buy land for the dam and that too has now become a nightmare. You chanted ‘dam dam’ and made a fool of the nation,” he continued. “This government is a threat to the nation and the economy has suffered a loss of Rs700-Rs1,000 billion. The money that came from China and Saudi Arabia was used up in the deficit they caused.” Abbasi continued, “The arrest of Sindh Assembly speaker without any proof is unwarranted and an attack on democracy. This is not a personal matter of Agha Siraj Durrani but that of a sitting speaker.”
Khawaja Asif said, “The prime minister directed his members to lie so much that people start believing it is the truth.” “The premier is saying that the previous [PML-N] government should be blamed for all issues. PM Imran’s ego is higher than the Himalayas. “We want to save the system and want it to run but the government has no such intention. PM Imran’s government is just standing on lies,” Asif added.
