LAHORE (9 News) – PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that his party had launched several uplift projects through the foreign debts.
Addressing a joint press conference on Thursday, he said that the PML-N government had fought the war against terrorism.
He said that the present government is accomplishing the projects launched by their government. “The PM would have made the speech in the assembly instead of at night had he some courage,” he declared.
The PML-N leader said that an attempt is being made to divert the attention from the failures of the government. About the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), he said that the NAB is only pressurizing the opposition.
PML-N leader Khawaja Muhammad Asif said that progress can only be made by the rule of law. “A 40 percent increase has been made in taxes. How the government that cannot achieve the target of Rs4,000 billion would get the target of Rs5,500 billion?” he said.
He said that the prime minister had no task except to call the names of the opposition. “Why are the cases not being made against politicians who are blamed for corruption?” said Kh Asif.
He said that there is provision of mid-term elections in the constitution. “If announced, we will vigorously participate in the mid-term elections,” he added.
