Lahore : Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan Tuesday asked the opposition parties to refrain from undue criticism on PM Imran Khan’s government.
Talking to a private news channel, she said the PTI government would be willing to hear the valid demands of the opposition if they preferred national interests over personal agendas.
She said the opposition had displayed an immature attitude
during Parliament’s session’s proceedings and they even did not bother
to listen to Budget 2019-20 patiently, adding the criticism of opposition was always about non issues.
She said opposition was not supporting government in improving current economic situation . Opposition should avoid leveling baseless allegations against Imran Khan’s government, she adds.
She said the government was committed to strengthen national economy and introduce new economic reforms. She said that those who had been in power in the previous governments were criminals as they brought about the present financial crisis.
The minister said all the legislators, including those from the opposition,must be respected, she added.
Replying to a question, she said, “We always welcome budget related suggestions of the opposition.” “Personal insults are hurled by the opposition, whereas opposition needs to respect Prime Minister Imran Khan,” she remarked.
