Information minister invites PTI to work together for country’s development


ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Pervaiz Rashid has urged PTI Chairman Imran Khan that ‘let us forget the past and work together for the development and prosperity of the country’.

Talking to newsmen here on Monday, he asked Imran Khan to leave negative politics and do positive politics for the betterment of the country. He called upon PTI to play its part in the Parliament and give suggestions to overcome the challenges of terrorism, energy shortage, unemployment, poverty and ignorance so that the government may speed up the development work.

The minister said Sunday’s by-election has proved that there were no fifty thousand fake votes. He said the Judicial Inquiry Commission report has already proved wrong the allegations levelled by Imran Khan.

He said by-election results also stamped the correctness of the 2013 general elections. He said in NA-144 Okara where no PML(N) leader participated in the electioneering, its candidate got over forty-five thousand votes.

He said Imran Khan has fully run the electioneering in Okara and his candidate could only get over six thousand votes. He said the victorious candidate from Okara Riazul Haq has said he is a worker of PML(N).

Referring to October 12, 1999 when a dictator toppled a constitutionally elected government, he said we should work for the development of the country to provide a better Pakistan to the coming generations.
