PTI propaganda on talks with IMF harms national interests: Marriyum



Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Wednesday debunked the propaganda launched by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on the ongoing negations of the government with the International Monetary Fund.

Talking to the media persons here at the Parliament House, the minister said the PTI which pushed the country on the brink of default, was now involved in spreading fake news on the talks with the IMF which harmed the national interest.

“Spreading fake news is in nobody’s interest,” she said, urging the media to abstain from publishing and airing fake news originating from unauthentic sources.

She said the government was trying to renegotiate the agreement, signed by the PTI regime with the IMF, to provide maximum relief to the masses.

The minister said all the people should contribute towards the betterment of the country and the nation. The coalition government had made concerted efforts to save the country from default.

To a query, she said it was the responsibility of the Election Commission of Pakistan to hold the elections in the country.

She questioned the motive of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s to approach the Lahore High Court against the acceptance of resignations of its members of the National Assembly.

Ironically, the PTI members had tendered resignations on their own and now they would join the same House, which was termed “imported” by their chairman, she said.—APP
