Previously, speaking to BOL News’ program Tajzia with host Sami Ibrahim, Ahsan Iqbal had said that whenever the PDM tried to discuss the political and national issues, the PTI government stated it as we are asking for the NRO.
“The government is not credible at the time,” he added. “All Imran Khan has is Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif phobia,” said Iqbal.
He further added that Imran Khan only focuses on not sparing the Sharif family and calling them corrupt.
Ahsan Iqbal had further questioned, “Doesn’t he [Imran Khan] see inflation and unemployment?”
Referring to PML-N’s efforts, the National Assembly Member (MNA) said PML-N wants everyone to work together for Pakistan’s economy. “The economy which used to be positive is now going down,” he added.
“For the betterment of Pakistan, new elections should be held according to the constitution,” Iqbal demanded.
The PML-N leader further said that the PML-N has no enmity with anyone. “All it wants is Pakistan and its economy to be strong,” he added.
Iqbal had also said that the cause of the country’s problems is political instability.
