Special Assistant to Punjab Chief Minister on Information Hasaan Khawar on Monday said that by giving a fugitive politician the opportunity to address a conference organised in the name of justice and in the presence of members of the superior judiciary, was nothing more than ridiculing the judiciary and state institutions.
He said that the Opposition, while running away from accountability, accuses the government of victimisation; and when found guilty, shouts of selective justice.
Responding to various questions from media persons, Hasaan Khawar further said that the PML-N is the foremost founder of leaking audio and videotapes against persons and institutions in order to muddle in the judicial process when their crimes are uncovered.
Stating on the occasion, he termed the Dubai Expo beneficial for Punjab and said that 20 MoUs signed at the Expo would result in much-needed investment to the tune of Rs 45 billion in Punjab which will be vital in the development of the province.
He said that an Investment Portal as well as a help desk has also been set up to facilitate the investors in this regard. Hasaan Khawar said that in this regard an investment facilitation cell is working under the supervision of Chief Minister Punjab.
The hassle of getting NOC for businesses has now been done away with. He hoped that this private investment would prove no less than good news and a gift for the people of Punjab.
