Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that people who have been involved in corruption cases are trying to portray themselves as political martyrs by appearing on television.
“Convicted people are trying to misguide the nation,” said the premier while presiding over a meeting of government spokespersons in Islamabad on Friday.
PM Imran took the participants into confidence over his recent visit to the United States and his high-level huddle with President Donald Trump.
It was decided in the meeting that the government would adopt a stern approach towards the opposition’s country-wide protest movement against the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), sources privy to the development said.
The meeting concluded to retaliate against the opposition parties staging the anti-government demonstrations.
While focusing on the country’s present economic condition the premier said, “Pakistan is out of an economic crisis and the government is trying to give relief to the people with regards to the basic necessities.”
The opposition parties’ no-trust move against Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani also came under discussion during the meeting.
PM Imran also directed the government spokespersons to highlight a positive image of the PTI government.
