Minister of State for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Marriyum Aurangzeb talking to the media on the eve of Rugby match between Italy and Pakistan here Saturday, said from now on the country would be run in conformity with the will of the masses and as a consequence of the political maturity shown by the political parties in resolving the delimitation issue general elections would be held on time.
The development would have silenced those who were demanding pre-mature polls in the country, she said, adding that the country was fast moving towards political stability and democracy was gaining strength with every passing day.
Referring to the state of the economy, she said Finance Minister Ishaq Dar had made commendable efforts in the revival of the economy in line with the vision of former prime minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif. The economy of the country was far stronger and stable than in 2013, she added.
The minister, in response to a question regarding desertions from the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, said a big number of PTI members did not agree with the brand of politics practiced by the party and it appeared that more and more of them would leave it in the coming days.
Anybody daring to speak the truth, she added, would be expelled from the PTI because how could a person, who himself was a great liar, tolerate those who told the truth. Imran was reaping now what he had sowed earlier, she added..— APP
