Islamabad: Federal Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Senator Shibli Faraz (Shibli Faraz) said that because these people are hypocrites, the opposition party failed to apply different strategies to pressure the government.
He said that the opposition has no moral logic, there is public support for the overthrow of the government, and the people have shown full confidence in the honest leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The minister said that there were serious corruption allegations against the three political parties of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), and the opposition parties united to oppose the government just to protect its leadership from corruption.
He said that during the current state of the country’s coronavirus, the opposition parties intend to mingle with the people’s lives by holding public gatherings, adding that the opposition parties will not resign from parliament and if they do, then the government will hold elections on their seats.
Shibli Faraz said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf led government would complete its constitutional tenure and it would win the next general elections of 2023 with thumping majority on basis of its five years performance.
In response to a question, he said that if the deadly virus does not spread in the country, the government will not prevent political gatherings of the opposition.
He said that PTI has honest leadership under Prime Minister Imran Khan, adding that the Prime Minister has effectively emphasized Islamophobia at the international level.
He said during the first wave of the COVID-19, the present government tackled the pandemic effectively and making its all out efforts to protect lives of the people and in second wave of the deadly virus, the government had adopted same strategy but on the other hand, the opposition leaders were giving statements like illiterate persons in that regard.
The opposition was fighting for personal agenda and the PDM did not have any interest to address the problems of poor people, he added.
To another query, the minister said it was very astonished that the opposition parties had played with the constitution of the country during their governments but now they were talking for the supremacy of law.
The present government had strongly believed in rule of law and it had always work for the purpose, he added.
Shibli said that PDM’s had not such a capacity to topple the government, adding the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was not worried from public gatherings organized by the alliance.
