Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Hussain Qureshi Saturday said the government was taking different measures to control inflation. While talking to media persons here on Saturday, the foreign minister observed that some people wanted to become rich overnight and they resorted to hoarding and profiteering which caused inflation. He, however, added that the incumbent government was very much active against the hoarders and profiteers.
Responding to a question about party funds, Qureshi remarked that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had provided complete details of funding to Election Commission. PTI collected funds within ambit of law, he categorically stated. Similarly, he said, PTI also managed audit of its accounts, on annual basis.
Qureshi said before holding protest, both Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) should also provide details of their party funds to Election Commission by January 18. He remarked that protest demonstration of PDM should be in democratic manner and the law should not be taken into hand. To another question about Machh mishap, the foreign minister stated that some powers were working to weaken Pakistan, adding, India was trying to create unrest in Pakistan by fanning sectarianism. Pakistan exposed nefarious designs of India.
Qureshi said Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa met the heirs of the martyrs of Machh incident. Qureshi expressed the commitment that the government would bring the culprits to justice. Some people tried to play politics on this unfortunate incident, he regretted. The foreign minister also expressed satisfaction on improvement of national economy. To a question, Qureshi stated that it was prime responsibility of the government to protect religious places of the minorities. He also stressed upon India to provide complete protection to Masajid.
British parliamentarians made it clear that Jammu and Kashmir was not internal matter of India but a global dispute. India always tried to give impression that circumstances in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) were normal.
