- Minister says there is no difference between Nawaz and MQM chief Altaf Hussain as both leaders used people for their own gains
(Karachi) Information Minister Shibli Faraz has said that PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif is responsible for rising inflation and destroying economy of the country.
Addressing media briefing after Nawaz's speech on Thursday, he said that instead of providing proofs of his wealth and properties, the former premier is criticizing state institutions. "He is just trying to save looted wealth by targeting the institutions."
"Nawaz lies in a professional way. He has done nothing for the country but only for himself and his family," Faraz stated.
He said under the current circumstances, the government will have to determine whether to allow Nawaz Sharif's speeches or not.
The information minister highlighted, "There is no difference between Nawaz and MQM chief Altaf Hussain." He said, "Both leaders used people for their own gains and corruption."
Shibli said that the PML-N leader could put Pakistan's integrity at stake through his speeches. "He [Nawaz] is living a comfortable and luxurious life in London and want others to support him in his nefarious designs."
He said, "The whole nation knows Nawaz well and his ambitions that are against the country. No one will stand by his side." The minister said that Nawaz Sharif is just inciting people to revolt against the government which will never happen.
He said that if PML-N had reservations over the 2018 elections, they should have filed petitions in the courts. "All options will be exhausted to bring Nawaz back to Pakistan."
Earlier in his speech, Nawaz criticised the government and accused it of rigging the 2018 elections. He said his war is not with Imran Khan but with those who brought him into the power.
He said that the present government has failed in all sectors and ensure provision of basic facilities to the people. The PML-N supremo stated there is joblessness and inflation in the country which has badly affected the people.
The PML-N leader said that not just the economy, but also the law and order situation of the country was under control when his party was in power.
