Federal Minister for Education & Professional Training Shafqat Mahmood Monday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was safe, in the saddle with the overwhelming parliamentary and public support and a booster dose of its allies. He was addressing a press conference at Circuit House, along with Raja Yasir Humanyun Sarfraz, Provincial Minister for Higher Education and General Secretary Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Punjab.
The minister said, “The opposition had started making hue and cry immediately after the PTI came to power”. They hurled repeated threats of resignation from assemblies, and long march to intimidate the government, but all their threats fizzled out, and now they were staging a new drama of ‘No confidence motion’, which was just to keep themselves alive in the media, he added.
He termed the opposition day-dreamers, adding that the government had no threat from the defeated elements, who had been rejected by masses. The PTI government would completes its constitutional term, and continue to serve masses with the active support of its allies, he added. He said that objective of his visit to Faisalabad was to take the party workers into confidence and to get feedback from them regarding his ministry. “We also discussed the issues relating to the upcoming Local Government (LG) elections,” he added.
He said that the public gathering in Mandi Bahauddin and Vehari was a great success which gave a clear and sound message to the opposition that they still stand steadfast with the PTI. He said, “The PTI is the biggest parliamentary party, and people have full confidence in its leadership”. This gathering should be an eye-opener for the opposition, who were trying to deceive masses on one or another pretext of long march, people’s movement and now “No confident motion”. All the previous moves proved a total failure as masses refused to support their negative agenda, he added.
