ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Pervaiz Rashid Monday said Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) must not instigate its workers for law breaking as the use of force in politics could give birth to anarchy and push the workers on the path of terrorism.
Talking to media after attending the concluding session of 10-day celebrations of “Ashra-e-Quaid,” organised by Such TV, he said that the government was ready to hand over the control of Peshawar Electric Supply Company (PESCO) to Chairman PTI Imran Khan to make possible the recovery of electricity bills from the defaulters.
Responding to a question he said, the court of history has already given its verdict regarding former President Pervez Musharraf and now his case was in the court of law. The government has provided ample opportunity to former president Pervez Musharraf to give his side of the story in the court of law.
And his statements outside the court have no relevance as we had already seen him airing statements while hovering pistols and fists, he added.
The standard of living of the people could not be improved via satellite while sitting in the cozy atmosphere of Canada. The standard of living of the people have registered significant improvement during the tenure of Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz).
He cited the examples of motorway, metro bus service, green channel facility at airports, laptop and others which helped improving the standard of living of the people of the country.
The government has already relaxed various conditions of Prime Minister’s business loan scheme. The scheme has been simplified and made result-oriented by ensuring the security of the money of Banks. The PM has relaxed the conditions of youth loan scheme. Close relatives could also be the guarantor of the loan obtaining youth.
Regarding Pak-India relations, he said the agreement of both countries to settle their disputes through negotiations was a great breakthrough.
Regarding his achievements, he said his great achievement was the extermination of secret fund. Government wants to make Pemra an independent and viable institute.
Earlier speaking in the last day of Such TV’s 10 days ‘Ashra-e-Qaid’ celebrations, he urged the management of the channel to organize a debate on Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s sayings so true and false could be sifted apart.
He said the true meaning of the sayings of Quaid-i-Azam could be spread and implemented in the country. The sayings of Quaid-i-Azam must not be distorted. The meaning and translation of Quaid-e-Azam’s golden words Unity, Faith and Discipline had been changed by the powerful. Such change was the intellectual dishonesty. The basic philosophy of the state was also changed by the powerful.
Despite the presence of several political parties including religious parties the Quaid-i-Azam decided to used the platform of Pakistan Muslim League.
The basic philosophy behind was to use the power of argument for bringing a change and avoid the use of force.
Later he distributed shield and certificates among the anchors and participants of10 day Asra-e-Quaid celebrations.
