Govt to complete its tenure: Firdous

Posted by: APP, Uploaded: 15th November 2011

Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said on Tuesday that the government was not feeling any threat and would complete its tenure.

Talking to newsmen outside the Parliament House, the Information Minister said that solution of all issues lied in democracy and urged the political parties to continue working for strengthening it by showing maturity.

Dr Firdous said that for the first time in the political history of country, the government had united all institutions and taken all stakeholders into confidence on all important national and international issues.

Replying to a question regarding resignation of former Foreign Minister Shah Mahmoood Qureshi from the membership of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), she said he had quitted the party because he was not given the portfolio of his choice.

She said Shah Mahmood Qureshi was part of the government for three years but he got annoyed over changing of his portfolio in cabinet reshuffle.

The Information Minister said the party leadership was aware of the designs of Shah Mahmood Qureshi but it did not expel him from the party.

She said Shah Mahmood Qureshi was a “political nomad” who keeps changing political parties.

Commenting on a statement of Khawaja Asif about possible enbloc resignation of PML-N parliamentarians, she said it would be a drone attack on the democratic set-up and the Parliament.
