People not ready to accept Nawaz Sharif, Zardari: Chaudhry Fawad

  • There is no future for those who met with Afghan National Security Adviser Hamdullah Mohib, says information minister
  • Says result of AJK elections manifests common man's confidence in Imran Khan
Published July 26, 2021

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain has said that people are not ready to accept Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's performance in Azad and Jammu Kashmir (AJK) elections is a manifestation of the common man's confidence in Prime Minister Imran Khan.

In a tweet on Monday, Fawad said the opposition parties should reconsider both their leadership and politics.

"It is time for alternative leadership and there is no future for those who met with Afghan National Security Adviser Hamdullah Mohib."

The information minister's statement comes after the PTI clinched a majority of the seats in the AJK election to form the next government, according to unofficial results.
