As Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government has completed its first 100 days after assuming power, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Friday (Nov 30) released a white paper titled “100 Days Promises, 100 Failures A Story of U-turns” on the performance of the PTI government.
PML-N leaders Ahsan Iqbal, Rana Sanaullah, Marriyum Aurengzeb and former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi addressed a press conference and claims that PTI’s government performance was very poor in 100 days as government took many u-turns on promises. They further said, “First we want the prime minister to give details of spending on advertisements .” “The PTI government shattered investors’ confidence by constantly projecting Pakistan as a corrupt country. It shattered investors’ confidence by influencing the FIA and the NAB,” it is stated. “Prime Minister Imran Khan still cannot believe he is in power even after passing of 100 days,” the senior PML-N leader said while criticising the government’s performance.
Mr. Abbasi asked Prime Minister Imran Khan to reveal the names, involved in money laundering. He also advised PM Imran that they should follow the policies of PML-N government to resolve the problems of the country. The former prime minister said he had been receiving calls since morning about the hike in the dollar price. “I want to tell everyone not to worry about the dollar hike. There is an adjustment taking place. We are taking steps which will ensure that there won’t be a shortage of dollars in Pakistan.” “The government is tasked with overcoming the deficit. When there is pressure on the dollar, the exchange rate increases.” “Interestingly, the prime minister has found solutions to staggering economy through buffaloes, chickens and eggs,” he said, questioning as to where the pilot projects had gone, which were to be launched to improve economy.
Ahsan regretted that “Checking growth of poultry and livestock sectors is the job of provinces, not of the prime minister,” he said, adding that the prime minister had promised to root out corruption in 90 days. He advised the PM to start the campaign from his team which consisted of corrupt elements.
While talking about devaluation of rupee Marriyam said “Now the government should apologize to the nation for making false claims that it would not succumb to IMF pressure.”
The white paper says that contrary to its claims of indiscriminate accountability, the PTI government appointed Zulfi Bukhari, Chauhdry Pervez Elahi, Aleem Khan and others to key post, who are established corruption icons and have been convicted too. Zulfi Bukhari is not coopering with the NAB while Imran said nothing about and gave an NRO to his sister Aleema over billions of illegal assets. It says the PTI government took another U-turn and forgot the Seraiki province promise. “Instead of boosting support, the PTI slashed the South Punjab budget,” the white paper said.
Further it is stated that“The PTI did not take any concrete steps to implement FATA merger with KP and made the process controversial by forcing cut in the NFC Award of provinces. The PM did not even visit FATA in 100 days and staged a face-saving visit later.” “The government also picked fights with US President, unsettling the already fragile ties and drove Indo-Pak relations to new lows while foreign direct investment took a hit”.
