Dubs govt, exapts conjoined twins linked in a relation of mutual trust Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that the PTI and overseas Pakistanis are conjoined twins who are linked in a relation of mutual trust and harmony.
“It is PTI’s manifesto to protect the rights of expatriate Pakistanis and government will take all measures to safeguard rights of overseas Pakistanis.”
Talking to the media at Governor House here on Monday, Dr Firdous said the credit goes to PM Imran Khan-led government that has made sincere efforts to ensure the rights of the Pakistanis living abroad.
She said the Overseas Pakistanis Commission Punjab of the previous govt failed in protecting the rights of expatriates and the PML-N made it a source of loot and plunder.
The Special Assistant said the PML-N deceived the overseas Pakistanis by siding with the looters and land grabbers.
She said the PTI government is working hard to resolve all the problems faced by the expatriates and has proved by giving the right of vote to overseas that PTI is a representative party of the Pakistanis living in different countries of the world.
Regrettably, the opposition is unnerved due to the right vote to overseas because corrupt opposition parties have never been sincere with the nation.
Dr Firdous criticized the PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal for his opposition to the right of vote to overseas and said that why the PML-N absconding leader is busy in conspiracies against the country from London.
Who has given this corrupt fugitive the right of intervention; she enquired and advised the opposition to stop playing politics in the name of overseas.
The SACM informed the media that OPC Act has been approved and no one will dare to usurp the rights of overseas Pakistanis. The overseas web portal has been updated to better facilitate the citizens abroad, she said.
Responding to a question, Dr Firdous said that PM Imran has emerged as a voice of the nation by announcing that Pakistan will not let its soil be used by any foreign power.
We have already paid a heavy price of war at our borders and this will not happen again because national security is an important agenda of the PTI govt.
