Talking to the media here outside the Supreme Court, Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had failed to submit any supportive document with the Supreme Court regarding the Panama Papers case. He said the PTI leaders were actually trying to propagate the sub judice matter on roads and streets to mislead the people as they had failed to produce any evidence in support of their allegations.
The people, he said, were well aware of the PTI’s tactics, which had multiplied its chief’s frustration as he was not expecting such public response despite strong propaganda.
He said the PTI wanted to stretch the Panama Papers matter to the maximum for petty political gains. However, it would face defeat in the 2018 general election, which would be won by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) with the support of people, he added.
Saad said under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the country was moving towards economic progress. Several new projects were being initiated to improve the living standard of the people, he said.
He said the PTI should pay attention to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa where it was in government and improve its governance as it had failed to meet the aspirations of the people there.—APP
