SIALKOT: Former defence minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Asif on Sunday said the current premier looks worried by his tone, adding political leaders are always ready for elections.
Talking to media at his residence in Sialkot, the former minister said the PTI led government is enemy of herself and trying to impose their rule over bureaucracy. “Government had done nothing in the past six months they only put boards on its old plans,” he said.
The PML-N leader further said that the entire system is in danger and we have reservations.” Despite our reservations, we want to let system work. The government is busy in printing currency notes and till now they have printed Rs1.4 trillion.” he added.
Imran Khan has yet to act upon what he has promised with the nation in past 22 years. Renowned economic advisers are leaving him now and for the first time, a prime minister is going to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for money. He himself had said it is better to commit suicide rather than going to IMF for loan.
Responding to a question regarding the chairmanship of the Public Accounts Committee, Asif said removing Shehbaz Sharif from the chairmanship will not favour already week PTI government. We never wanted to climb on containers, we can also paralyze the entire system by sitting in dharnas.”
He also criticised the PTI led government’s foreign policy and said it was not in the right direction either.
In reply to a response to a question regarding the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO), Asif said only Mr Niazi’s sister Aleema Khan has been given an NRO.
