ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid Saturday on Saturday said that while Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif brought with him a list of development projects to every public gathering, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan always carried a ‘list of allegations’.

Accusing the PTI chief of ‘misleading the public’, Rashid said “those who had been seeking explanations from others, are now compelled to give explanations themselves.”

Pakistan cannot prosper without eradicating corruption, says Imran

“The peoples’ court has rejected Imran’s allegations,” the minister said. He added that the PTI chief ‘failed to dent’ Prime Minister Nawaz’s popularity.

Meanwhile, at the inaugural ceremony of a two-day festival to celebrate the 65th anniversary of Pakistan’s diplomatic relations with China, Rashid said the strategic partnership between the two countries will be enhanced further to ensure peace and prosperity in the region.

PTI will steer campaign against corruption 'till the end', says Imran

“At a time when the international and regional environment is undergoing profound changes, it is our firm resolve to further cement and forge this all-weather strategic partnership, which serves the fundamental interests of both the countries and contributes to the peace and prosperity of our people,” he said.
