Special Assistant to Chief Minister (SACM) Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Tuesday advised all the opposition parties to focus on national interests. The SACM said that the people of Pakistan had elected the members from opposition parties to resolve the crises.
“PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz looks disappointed over the defeat of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) despite holding rallies across the country,” she added.
Firdous Ashiq further stated that corrupt group of PDM is making explanations to gain sympathies from the masses. No compromise will be made on corruption as Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan had come into power with a pledge to deal with the corrupt elements with an iron hand, she clarified.
The promise of Prime Minister Imran Khan to maintain the supremacy of law will be fulfilled at any cost. On the one hand, signs of defeat were clearly reflected from Calibri Queen’s face and on the other, the corrupt gang of opposition is giving clarifications for their failed public meeting to get public sympathy. The PTI came to power with a mandate to eliminate corruption and the mission of the government is to eradicate corrupt elements from society. PDM should leave the politics of vested interests and come to table to resolve peoples’ problems.
The PTI government has not only established 5 new universities in such a short span of time but also provided funds to universities set up by the N-League government and made them functional by approving their regulations. 4 more universities will become functional in Punjab soon.
SACM Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan and Minister for Higher Education Raja Yasir Humayun stated while addressing a joint press conference here at DGPR office.
Dr Firdous said that the Calibri Queen’s bondmaid is pointing the finger at the government after the failure of Lahore public meeting. She said that the government did not obstruct the meeting but Mariyum Nawaz is furious with the media personnel for telling the truth and showing the reality of flop show of PDM. She said the case registered against PML-N workers and organizers of the meeting include various clauses relating to destruction of public assets, forcible entry through the gate of Minar-e-Pakistan and damage to government property.
Regarding Bilawal’s meeting with Shehbaz Sharif, she said that Bilawal should have spoken to the PML-N president first instead of vice president as now he has seen the consequences of giving importance to the vice president. She said that politics of Mariyum Safdar is now limited to Jati Ummra as she failed to gain public support during the Lahore meeting. She said that PML-N damaged the sanctity of Minar-e-Pakistan after desecrating Quaid’s mausoleum. She said that PDM leadership was using its rhetoric as a poisonous weapon against Pakistan. On the one hand, the government is working on the welfare schemes of the people and on the other hand, opposition is promoting the narrative of chaos and conflict, she added. She said that resignations need courage but opposition doesn’t have this courage.
Responding to a criticism by Maryam Nawaz for not building new universities, Raja Yasir Humayun said that Maryam Nawaz was ignorant of history and was distorting the facts because during the ten-year rule of N-League, the education sector was completely ignored and universities were limited to announcements only and not a single international standard university could be established in the province.
