No threat from Opp’s APCs: governor Sarwar

Lahore

September 20, 2020

LAHORE : Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar held a meeting with Federal Interior Minister Brigadier(R) Ejaz Shah at Governor’s House here.

Both leaders discussed various political and national matters. The Punjab governor said that the government will not go anywhere before completing its constitutional term. The opposition failed in the parliament and it will face failure out of the parliament as well. Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar said the opposition which was halting the legislation regarding FATF had been exposed. He said “We have no danger from the opposition’s APCs and neither will we let them pressurise us. We will continue to move forward on our mission to serve the public.” The Punjab governor said that Prime Minister Imran Khan only talks about safeguarding the national interests, whereas, the opposition parties are pursuing their own political and personal interests. “Completing five-year term is our democratic and constitutional right. General elections will be held in 2023 and the opposition should wait for the elections rather than resorting to protests,” he said.

Accountability is a must for progress and development of Pakistan and completing legislation regarding FATF is a great achievement of PTI government, the Punjab governor said.

Federal Interior Minister Ejaz Shah said, “Our government is ensuring transparent and indiscriminate accountability. For the first time, we are introducing reforms in public institutions. The public has given us a five-year mandate and we will complete our term.
