ISLAMABAD - Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan Saturday said Khawaja Asif always got appreciation from PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif by showing his skills to use abusive language against opponents.

Reacting on the recent statement passed by Khawaja Asif, she said it was the policy of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leadership, not the fault of Khawaja Asif, to tell a lie so adamantly that no one could differentiate between lie and truth.

The SAMP said the PML-N had been misleading the people by telling a lie on different issues, hoping that the smell of PML-N’s 30-year ‘political-trash’ would come to an end soon.

Dr Firdous said the PML-N members not only looted Utility Stores, but also emptied the national exchequer to fill their pockets.

She said the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government had given Rs2 billion Ramazan package to facilitate the faithful during the holy month.

Last year, she said the PML-N had given less subsidy as compared to the package given by the PTI government, adding Rs760 Ramazan subsidy had lapsed in 2018 due to inefficiency of the previous government.

The SAPM said public issues, not jokes, were discussed in parliamentary meetings of the PTI.

Masses facing

difficulties with their captain

Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan Saturday said that people of Pakistan were facing difficulties with courage and determination along with their captain.

 In a tweet the SAPM said that the goal of Prime Minister Imran Khan was permanent treatment of the cancer spread in the system. She said that the development of strong autonomous institutions, eradication of corruption, poverty and inflation and development of backward areas were top priorities of the government. Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said the history was witness that the intense opposition and criticism always strengthened Imran Khan’s resolve to reach the destination. She said Imran Khan always proved his critics wrong by his hard work, determination and focused approach.
