‘Snakes in grass’ most dangerous for Punjab govt, says PTI minister


Punjab Food Minister Samiullah Chaudhry has said that the Punjab government is facing more conspiracies from ‘snakes in the grass’ than their political opponents.

“I have protected my portfolio with hard work and performance. The conspiracies are going on and rumours are doing rounds but I am challenging conspirators at every front,” he said during a press conference here on Monday.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) minister said that those who lost elections are jealous and involved in conspiracies against the provincial government. “Such people don’t believe in services for masses. My crime is that I live with courage and I am against financial discrepancies,” he added.

The minister further said that it doesn’t matter if his ministry is taken away or his portfolio is changed. “I challenge anyone to give such performance in seven months’ time. The chief minister is all aware of the conspiracies and will take action at the due time,” he concluded.
