Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz has said that it is unfortunate that the opposition is trying to mislead the people of Pakistan but it will not succeed in its nefarious designs.
“The opposition tried its level best to politicise the Karachi incident [the registration of a case against Pakistan Muslim League-N leader Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar under alleged duress] and today Indian TV channels are showing pictures of opposition leaders in this regard,” Shibli said while addressing a press conference here on Wednesday,
Shibli Faraz lambasted the opposition for “shifting the war against their corruption towards the institutions”, saying that the nation would hold the alliance accountable for their stance.
The federal minister said that the narrative adopted by the opposition “pleases our enemies”. “They (opposition) have tried to spark conflict among the institutions [and] are trying to create uncertainty and unrest. The people will hold them accountable for this,” the minister said.
He challenged the opposition’s claim that they were fighting for the people’s rights, saying the leaders “who used to ride bicycles now arrive in Land Cruisers and then talk about poor people”. He condemned the “drama staged” at Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah’s mausoleum by Safdar, saying that instead of denouncing it, the PPP had made it a political incident.
