Lahore : Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Aswan has said that PML-N’s decision to change Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly and the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chairman had vindicated the stance of Prime Minister Imran Khan. Democracy and corruption could not run simultaneously, she said while talking to a private news channel.
Dr Firdous said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz had accepted
the reality and time had now proved that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s stance of not handing over the PAC chairmanship to tainted leadership was fully justified.
She said had opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif any plan to return to
the country he would not have appointed anyone else in his place.
The PML-N leaders, she said, were trying to get an NRO (National
Reconciliation Ordinance), but they had so far failed in that regard.
To a question, Dr Firdous said the opposition parties, which were
claiming to start an agitation, were themselves plunging in a state of
disarray. For saving their ill-gotten money one of the Sharif brothers
had escaped from the country while the other was trying his best to go
abroad on the pretext of medical treatment.
Shahbaz Sharif, she said, got his name removed from the Exit Control
List through court on the plea of medical treatment, but his pictures
circulating on the social media showed that he was enjoying on the
streets of London. When the National Accountability Bureau asked questions about corruption and money laundering done by the opposition leaders, they gave lame excuses, she added.
She said Shehbaz Sharif’s self-created drama of illness had been
exposed as after reaching London instead of sharing details of his
disease, he was seen shopping in malls and playing video games as per
his visuals and pictures gone viral on social media.
She said finally the real faces of Sharif brothers were exposed by
contradiction in their statements and actions. They were now trying
to go on self-exile on medical grounds . She said the PTI had information that Shehbaz would not return home.
