Opposition publicity gimmicks to fail: Firdous Says lust for power has blinded opponents to determining national interest

Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Friday said that the opposition is trying to create an impression of political victimization by the government to win public sympathies but will fail its designs.
“The release of Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz on a five-day parole to participate in the last rituals of his (Shehbaz’s) mother is a good will gesture of the Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar.” Speaking at a press conference here, Dr Firdous said that those who are chanting hollow slogans today had plundered the national exchequer in the past and such corrupt elements cannot hoodwink the nation anymore. “The corrupt clique stands exposed to the public and all their gimmicks will fail to serve their purpose anymore.”
She said that the alliance of opposition parties is only to safeguard their personal interest and looted money and they have nothing to do with people’s problem. “The nefarious narrative of the opposition has been rejected by the people as lust for power has blinded the opposition”, she pointed out.
The SACM said that the PTI government will fulfill its promise of strengthening the institutions and Prime Minister Imran Khan is moving forward with the mission to enforce supremacy of law. Dr Firdous said that the PTI government is making every possible effort to end the hereditary politics and the day is not far when the people of Pakistan will be free from ugly chains of dynastic politicians.
She said: “We all have mothers. Mothers are blessings. I offer sincere condolence to the Sharif Family on the death of Begum Shamim Akhtar. The death of Begum Shamim Akhtar is not a good omen for the Sharif Family as there is no one left behind to pray for them.”
While criticizing the Sharif Family, Firdous Ashiq Awan said that she felt pity that the dead body of Begum Shamim Akhtar has been sent through a cargo plane. She said that the Calibri Queen is not fully aware of the cultural values and family traditions. Maryum Safdar should better stay at home and attend the last rites of her late grandmother instead of attending the processions, she stated.
She said that it’s not the right time for political point-scoring as we have to fight corona virus. The opposition should refrain from putting the lives of people at stake just for their political interests. The opposition rallies could lead spread of corona virus at a large scale in the country.
Responding to a question, she said that the government will ensure the supremacy of law and violation of SOPs will not be tolerated under any circumstances. The people have rejected the PDM’s narrative at the Peshawar procession and all the opponents are blaming one another for the failure.
