ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbsi on Friday said that the government has not revealed any plan on how it would construct five million houses.
Addressing a press conference along with other PML-N leaders in Islamabad on Friday, said that the policies of his party should be implemented if the PTI government was serious in resolving issues facing the country. He said that the prime minister didn’t say a single word about tax evaders, adding that those who don’t pay taxes have weaken the system.
Criticising the government, Abbasi said that they regret PM Imran couldn’t even hire a peon in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), adding that he should decide if the anti-graft watchdog was under his control or not.
“The value of rupee has depreciated to the lowest level in history,” the former premier said and added the reforms introduced by former minister Miftah Ismail are the only way to stop money laundering and theft.
Taking a jibe at PM Imran’s speech, Abbasi asked the government reveal the country where US$11 billion are and bring the money back to Pakistan.
Speaking on the occasion, former interior minister Ahsan Iqbal said that Pakistan couldn’t even get to know which departments come under federation and which come under provincial government.
PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal said that the prime minister had said that he will end corruption within 90 days. “Despite passing of 100 days, the premier hasn’t learnt the rules of business,” he added.
Earlier, PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said that nation should not be disappointed and should search on ‘Google’ the next 100-day plan of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
PML-N reacted over the 100-day performance of the PTI government after they held a ceremony on November 29, regarding completion of their first 100 days in government.
PML-N leader and former Sindh governor Mohammad Zubair also has criticized the performance of PTI government that failed to give satisfactory results and now has announced to give another plan.
Mohammad Zubair added that PM Imran Khan failed to present any achievement of government.
