Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz said on Wednesday that the government was using all the ways to make sure the quick deportation of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Nawaz Sharif from London.

While talking to the journalists, he said that as there was no deal between Pakistan and the United Kingdom (UK) about deporting any convicted person, that was why, the government had officially asked the UK authorities through the Pakistani embassy in London to start the deportation process of Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.

He further said that the rulers had intentionally avoided from having an extradition treaty with specific countries, including the UK, to escape to these states where they had their looted wealth.

He further said that everybody knew the financial position of the politicians before joining the politics. It is quite obvious that how bike riders became the owners of land cruisers, he added.

The minister said that the alliance of the opposition in the form of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), on the one hand, was trying to befool people with their false propaganda while on the other hand, Prime Minister Imran Khan was putting all his efforts to remove the miseries of the poor.

The information minister also said that the government’s economic policies had started bearing fruits as the economic indicators were on the upward course.

It was all due to the wisely devised policies of the prime minister that the situation in Pakistan was coming back to normalcy despite the global recession due to COVID-19.

He criticized the alliance of the opposition and said that all these corrupt people had become a party to escape accountability and to destabilize the country.

This move had rather reinforced the determination of the prime minister to go ahead with the accountability process, he added.

Commenting on PML-N leader Safdar Awan’s arrest, he said that the opposition had dented the country internationally by playing politics about this issue. All the PDM stakeholders also tried to divide the national institutions, he further said.

The Indian media had been running the activities of PDM leaders as their anti-Pakistan narrative, he said adding that they would have to face the consequences for their anti-state activities.

He also said that the masses would reject this anti-state rhetoric by the opposition parties as it was in fact giving way to the anti-state agenda.

Questioned the unholy alliance between PPP and PML-N, he asked Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to recall that the objectionable pictures of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto were thrown down from the helicopters across the country just to win the elections in 90s.

Answering a question about the possibility of dialogues between the government and the opposition, he said that the prime minister had already said that the government was ready to talk to the opposition on every issue except accountability.

He also said that all the political parties had devastated the country when they were in power by implementing the artificial measures but now they were trying to pose themselves as well-wishers of the people.
