The government wanted to resolve real issues facing the country, but it will not compromise on national interests, leaving politics aside.

The information minister said that things would move towards betterment day by day.

Few other factors are playing a proactive role behind matters on the face of it. The PTI has bestowed the general public with political consciousness and it will give practical fulfillment to the dreams of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Allama Muhammad Iqbal, he added.

Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has initiated the process of resolving journalists’ problems on priority basis, the minister said adding that Information Department and DGPR would extend the all-out possible assistance to the journalist community in order to solve their problems.

He said that PPP was doing politics on the matter of chairmanship of Senate. Talking to a private news channel, he said that the elements who were involved in looting public money and destroying the national resources would face punishment.

The past government of the PML-N was responsible for damaging the industrial and agricultural sectors of the country, he said.

About the tax culture, the minister said that the trader community earning handsome money should pay the taxes. He, however, said that talks with trader fraternity were held and the genuine grievances of that community would be addressed soon.

Replying a question he said that UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other friendly countries had expressed full confidence in the leadership of the present government. He said that the friendly countries had supported the PTI-led government due to its prudent policies.
