‘Leaderless and aimless’ Opposition no threat to govt, says Fawad


Minister for Information on Sunday said that the “leaderless” and “aimless” alliance of the opposition parties posed no serious threat to the democratically elected government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

“We have been hearing for the last 15 to 20 days that the no-trust move was around the corner, but in reality, this is beyond their power as they lack the capacity to bring the motion,” he said while addressing a presser in Pind Dadan Khan, Jhelum.

Describing the opposition’s current endeavour to oust the democratically elected government as “futile”, he said their leaders just wanted to keep their members of the Parliament engaged politically.

As regards to the long marches of the opposition parties towards Islamabad, the minister said it seemed the PTI would have to provide them people for “face-saving and political survival”.

Referring to a viral video in which a woman leader of Pakistan People’s Party could be seen riding a donkey cart with party workers, Fawad quipped that he had already offered to provide them with “horses” and “donkeys” for the long march.

To a question, he said PTI leader Jahangir Tareen stood by the party and would continue to support the government. Commenting on the meetings between the government allies with the opposition leaders, the minister said politicians took their decisions by reviewing evolving politics and future political discourse.

“Who will prefer to get along with the opposition that does not even know their leader or candidate for the slot of the prime minister,” he questioned. Commenting on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to Russia, he claimed it was for the first time that Pakistan had demonstrated an independent foreign policy.
