Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Friday hit out at opposition parties, saying “those attempting to bring a no-trust motion against the government do not even have the trust of their families and nation”.

The minister’s remarks come a day after PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz made another statement regarding the opposition’s planned no-confidence motion, in which she termed the move was a “risk that should be taken” because Prime Minister Imran Khan was “on his last legs”.

Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) President Maulana Fazlur Rehman had also announced last week that the opposition alliance had decided to move a no-confidence motion against the prime minister and would contact the PTI government’s allies in the centre for this purpose. In an apparent response to the opposition’s repeated warnings to the government, Fawad Chaudhry, while addressing a gathering in Pind Dadan Khan on Friday, said opposition members must return the “public money they acquired through corruption”.

“Nawaz Sharif told a lie and left the country, and now his daughter is visiting courts on a daily basis while her father and brothers are not returning to the country,” said the minister.

The minister accused Shehbaz Sharif of using delaying tactics in indictment proceedings against him. “Billions of rupees have been recovered from bank accounts of peons of sugar mills owned by Sharif brothers and the PML-N leaders have to face the court of law in this connection.”
