PML-N still has contacts with govt allies



Former prime minister and senior Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday said that today the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government was so fragile that it had to depend on phone calls from its ‘backers’ for its stay in the office.

Talking to media persons outside an accountability court in Islamabad where he had gone to attend the hearing of LNG reference, he asked the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman as to how much amount his department had been able to recover from what he alleged ‘corrupt’ PTI leaders.

He claimed that the opposition parties had reached a settlement with the parties allied to the PTI at Center. Calling the government ‘incompetent’, he said not a single project it had launched so far was without flaws. “The country’s economy is in ruins,” Abbasi said, adding that the government was doing the politics of ‘revenge’.—APP
