Khawaja Asif accuses PTI of attacking institutions

June 4, 2022 04:10 PM


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and Defence Minister Khawaja Asif said on Saturday that the PTI had been driven by the lust for power, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.  

Addressing a function in Sialkot, he said it was wrong to say that the PTI members of the National Assembly (MNAs) wanted to resign. 

Seconding the statement of Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, he claimed that only people from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) had participated in the party’s long march on Islamabad, and that none from Punjab had turned up at the event.  

The minister taunted former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan for seeking refuge in Peshawar in order to evade arrest.  

He accused the last PTI government of minting millions from sugar and drugs scandals. 

Asif also accused the last government of conspiring against the sovereignty of Pakistan. “Imran and members of his government had a party time during the last four years,” he said, and added, “But now when they are out of the corridors of power, they have started attacking the state institutions.” 

He further said that he had asked the city administration to first repair the roads on which work had already been started before turning its attention to others. “We will resolve the traffic issues of Sialkot on a permanent basis,” he assured. 

The minister also assured people of the city that work on West Water Treatment project would not create inconvenience for them. “We plan to initiate work on the projects, which involve digging of the roads, after the monsoon season,” he informed. 

Asif alleged that the PTI government had deliberately stopped work on development projects in the city.
