Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Sunday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan had become ‘irrelevant’.
The government was trying to fix the catastrophe wrought by Imran Khan during his four years disastrous tenure, she said in a statement. “Inflation, destruction of economy and foreign relations, besides historic debt are all Imran Khan’s legacy”, she maintained.
The government’s focus, she said, was only on the problems faced by the people as “we are committed to a clear agenda for the development and prosperity of Pakistan”.
Through this agenda, the ruling alliance had made national priorities and a clear approach within Pakistan and to the outside world, the minister said.
“Why elections should be held ahead of time because Imran Khan had lost power?” she questioned.
Taking a jibe at the PTI leadership, she said they had come to overthrow the federal government but left after announcing the overthrow of both their governments [in Punjab and KP].
The minister said though they had announced to leave the system, they were getting salaries as legislators and enjoying other benefits despite tendering resignation from the system.
