Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan has said the whole nation is still awaiting the answers of 18 questions asked by the government from Shehbaz Sharif.
Talking to media in Gujranwala, she said instead of responding to the money laundering allegations, PML-N spokespersons are trying to divert public attention by unduly criticizing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.
To a question about petition filed by Maryam Nawaz seeking her removal from the Exit Control List (ECL), she said Maryam has not approached the government.
The court would decide the matter under law and constitution.
Dr. Firdous said the PML-N spokespersons want to evaluate one-year performance of the PTI government, but they are not talking about those who remained in power generation after generation, plundered the national wealth and put the national economy on ventilator.
She said the government is fully aware of the problems confronted by the general public and necessary measures are being taken to control the price-hike.
Referring to the recently launched ‘Youth Entrepreneur Scheme’ by the Prime Minister, she said under the program, the youth would be given business loans to make them self-reliant and useful members of the society.
Earlier in a day, Prime Minister Imran Khan reiterates commitment to the Charter of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) on 35th ‘SAARC Charter Day’ here on Sunday.
He said that Pakistan was a firm believer in the strength and potential of regional cooperation for individual and regional development.
“Pakistan further believes that effective and result-oriented regional cooperation can be achieved only by adhering to the cardinal principles of sovereign equality and mutual respect as enshrined in the SAARC Charter,” PM Imran said in a message.
