LAHORE: Punjab Information Minister Fayazul Hassan Chohan said Monday that there was no likelihood of any in-house change in the country and the PTI government would complete its constitutional tenure.

Addressing luncheon hosted by PTI Media Strategy Committee for journalists at a local hotel, he said the opposition lived in a fool's paradise if they dreamed of derailing the PTI government in the Centre or the province. Provincial Health Minister Dr. Yasmin Rashid, Industries Minister Mian Aslam Iqbal, MPAs Saadia Sohail Rana, Ayesha Iqbal, Adviser to Chief Minister Punjab Faisal Hayat Jewna, President PTI Punjab Ijaz Chaudhry and a large number of journalists attended the luncheon which was hosted by media adviser to the information minister, MPA Musarrat Jamshaid Cheema.

Fayazul Hassan Chohan claimed that the PTI would again be voted to power for the next five-years. The provincial information minister said year 2020 would be a period of public welfare and progress and development of the country, adding 2019 was the year of rehabilitation of the economy. He said the PTI government would put the economy on the right track after it was left in tatters by the PML-N government. Reacting to the Indian Army Chief’s statement of forcibly annexing Pakistan administered Kashmir, he said the Indian general was in a state of amnesia and had forgotten what the Pakistan Army did to their pilot and jets on February 27 last year.

He lambasted Indian PM Narendra Modi for his anti-peace acts in the region. The provincial minister lambasted the high-handedness of a traffic police warden against Lahore Press Club President Arshad Ansari, adding he had asked Chief Minister Punjab Saradr Usman Buzdar and Law Minister Punjab Raja Basharat to initiate action against the accused.
