LAHORE: Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique said Sunday the PPP co-chairman was speaking of development in the country at a time when his party’s provincial government had failed to dispose of garbage in Karachi.
Addressing a rally here, Rafique said it would cause a huge loss if he disclosed everything, adding that “It has been 70 years [since the formation of Pakistan] and now we all have a collective responsibility to take the country to the path of progress.”
“Asif Ali Zardari, who failed to get trash heaps disposed of in Karachi, speaks of development in the country, while Imran Khan, who boasted of making a ‘Naya Pakistan’, is so coward that he moves to hill stations fearing dengue fever,” Rafique said criticising the PPP co-chairman and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief.
Rafique noted that the incumbent government had only five months left in the completion of its term. “If the government was not allowed to complete its term, then no future regime would be able to do so.” He also stressed the need for stopping religious extremism in the country.
“Pakistan needs an active parliament, brave military and honest bureaucracy,” added the minister.
