Lahore, September 28 (Online): Information Minister Punjab Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan has termed it ridiculous to link the arrest of Shahbaz Sharif by Maryam Nawaz with the Gilgit-Baltistan elections.
He asked Begum Safdar Awan to tell how many PML-N leaders including Shahbaz Sharif visited Gilgit-Baltistan in the last six months. These views were expressed by Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan in his response to a press conference held by Begum Safdar Awan regarding the arrest of Shahbaz Sharif.
On this occasion, he said that PML-N, which controlled the country through one family, is today accusing incumbent government of making Pakistan a one-party state.
Fayyaz-ul-Hassan further said that the ongoing political tension between Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif cannot be hidden by empty rhetoric.
Responding to Begum Safdar Awan’s terming accountability as personal and political revenge, Chohan said that perhaps Begum Safdar Awan was not aware of more than one and a half dozen accused arrested in the Ramzan Sugar Mill case.
He said that Begum Safdar Awan tried unsuccessfully to intimidate the government with All Parties’ Conference today. The people have already seen the failure and disgrace of dozens of such APCs by the non-united opposition, he added
