Former prime minister and PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday denied all the allegations regarding irregularities in setting up of power plants.

The former premier while addressing the media in Islamabad said, "In the last few days, the prime minister and members of his cabinet have issued statements which are false."

"I take full responsibility for all decisions taken during my term as prime minister," Abbasi said.

Dismissing all the allegation level against the PML-N leadership by the government he said that there is no corruption in any of PML-N's development projects and if anyone has doubts then he or she can and may conduct investigations.

"There is a limit to lies and accusations and it is thieves who level the most allegations," he stated.

Commenting on the Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry's claims that power plants set-up the previous government produced electricity at extremely high rates, Abbasi said, "The federal minister does not know the rates of electricity."

"We set-up plants which produced the cheapest electricity in Pakistan's history and are still generating cheap electricity," he added. 

Fawad should come to me and I will answer all his questions, it is the NEPRA which determines the rate of electricity, not the government, Shahid Khaqan told.

On a query regarding the corruption allegations by Chaudhry and Petroleum Minister Ghulam Sarwar in the LNG, power plants Abbasi told, "If we did not set-up LNG plants then the country's energy crisis would have never been resolved."

"We set-up these plants at the possible lowest coast in the minimum time informed the Parliment in this regard as well."

"Be ready to apologise if the allegations are proven false," he concluded.
