PIND DADAN KHAN: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Monday took a swipe at the Opposition once again, saying that those who deteriorated the country’s economy are now complaining about the inflation rate, Geo News reported.
Speaking at a ceremony in Pind Dadan Khan, the minister said that “people will not forgive Nawaz Sharif and his family until they return the country’s looted money,” adding that the country faced inflation due to the acts of the former rulers.
Chaudhry said that PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari is following the politics of his father by “using children of religious seminaries for politics with the help of Maulana Fazlur Rehman,” adding that he should instead follow the politics of his mother and grandfather.
Speaking about the Opposition’s plan to bringing about a no-confidence motion against the PTI-led government, the minister said that the “corrupt have united against the democratically elected government, however, they are bound to fail in their designs.”
During the ceremony, he further said that the “PM has no personal dispute with the Opposition, he just wants to recover the money that the Sharif family looted from common people, workers, and businessmen of Pakistan.”
“Nawaz Sharif made a $1 billion property in front of Hyde Park in London, and billions of rupees were illegally transferred to Shahbaz Sharif from fake accounts,” he said.
Chaudhry said that the PTI government fulfilled the promises it made to the people of this constituency, regretting that Pind Dadan Khan Tehsil had been kept deprived of development for 70 years.
“However, PM Khan’s government started everything afresh as there were no facilities like streets, roads, drinking water, education and health in the area.”
Talking about the developments in the Jhelum district, he said that there were only 47 doctors, but now around 800 doctors and paramedics are available to extend health services to the public.
He further said that the PTI government filled the teacher’s staff in schools, opened a Passport Office and EOBI (Employees Old-Age Benefits Institution) office in the city.
