The PTI government has six months to perform, said Federal Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry in an interview with an international news organisation.
Fawad claimed Prime Minister Imran Khan has told the federal cabinet that if it does not perform within six months, matters may escalate.
In the interview, Fawad stressed that there were great expectations from the prime minister and the PTI government. It came into power on the promise of reforming the entire system, not just fixing nuts and bolts, he said.
He added that PM Imran’s vision of systemic change was very clear before he came into power.
However, once the government was formed, there were many quarrels between senior leaders Asad Umar, Jehangir Tareen and Shah Mahmood Qureshi. The internal strife within the party hurt the government, opined Fawad.
“Imran’s core team broke up. The new people are frankly not aligned with his idea and maybe don’t have the capacity to do so. The infighting has caused a lot of harm to the party and its political cadre.”
The federal minister further said that it is the government’s own shortcomings that it cannot deliver. The government runs on two things – politics and governance, if there is a lack of balance between the two, matters can go awry at any time, he elaborated.
