ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Ch on Thursday said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has "changed the fate of Pakistan within two years".

Speaking with foreign journalists, the minister said the Opposition calling the PM "incompetent" and a "puppet of the army" are "frivolous arguments". "It is common for all Opposition [parties] to take such [irrational] stances." Fawad said Pakistan achieved what other nations could not have imagined doing. "We fought against COVID-19 successfully," he said, adding that speculations that the PM had refused to impose a lockdown and "only did so when the army intervened" are wrong. "It is the prime minister who takes decisions for the country, and the army agrees with those decisions," Chaudhry said.

Appreciating the PTI-led government, Fawad said Pakistan stopped seeing corruption scandals at the top levels of the government after a long time. He also shed light on the issue of missing persons and claimed that the number of missing persons will be "reduced to zero in the next six months". "We will also take actions against those responsible for abducting the missing persons," he said. The minister also said that Pakistan does not have any problems when it comes to freedom of speech.
