ISLAMABAD ( Web News )
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senior Vice President and former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the government that had come to power on the slogan of accountability turned out to be the most corrupt. He maintained that time was not far away when everyone would face accountability. “No-confidence motions are never publicized and that media only know when it will be submitted”, he noted. He said that the government could not convene the National Assembly session today as it is aware that when the session will be convened the no-confidence motion will be tabled. He said that the solution of this problem is also present in the constitution and these solutions will also be used. He said that the government which came to power unconstitutionally will go home constitutionally and Pakistani people will be provided the opportunity to again express their will again. He said that today all the ministers look worried.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi expressed these views in his conversation with media after appearing before the accountability court of Islamabad in LNG reference.
PML-N vice president criticized the prime minister for his fresh U-Turn. He elaborated that the premier used to propagate that the increase in petroleum prices in Pakistan was owing to inflation in the international market. “Recent decrease in petroleum prices will prove catastrophic to masses as IMF will levy massive taxes owing to government’s policies contrary to IMF directions”, he noted. The PML-N leader added that Imran Khan was doing all that intentionally to create hurdles for the upcoming government.
The former premier said that it was unfortunate for the country that the government which had come into power with the slogan of accountability had been proved as the most corrupt one. He maintained that NAB, which was established to control corruption, was the most corrupt institution of the country. He also showed hope that all corrupt elements would stand accountable shortly.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif went abroad for treatment and he will return back after undergoing treatment, adding that Nawaz Sharif himself will make decision about early return. He said that the government wants to complete its tenure eagerly but the people of Pakistan will not allow happening this.
