On this day, he said that services of all the state institutions including armed forces, paramedics, police and others which were tendering unmatching sacrifices against the corona pandemic were laudable and nation deeply owed their commitment to the profession.

“But, previous regimes deviated from the vision of Father of the Nation and destroyed the concept of rule of law; this is why, now accused people committing massive corruption were trying to pressurize the state institutions by bringing crowds of people,” he said adding that these people has spoiled national institutions for their vested interests and today the gentleness had become a bad name in the society.

“The incumbent government has started journey towards the Pakistan envisioned by Father of the Nation, but it will take time to make up losses incurred by the previous regimes” minister said adding that supremacy of the rule of law would be the first step towards the creation of Pakistan as per vision of the Father of the Nation.

Later while talking to media, Shibli Faraz said that opposition parties with different ideologies had gathered at the platform of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) in a bid to secure their corruption, but they failed due to their vested interests.
