Political elements trying to disrupt the government’s development agenda through allegations and political agitation will not succeed in their plans, said Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb.
Addressing the media in Rawalpindi on Saturday, Marriyum said the people will not support leaders who are trying to create chaos in the country.
Speaking about the recent Supreme Court verdict of the Panama case, Marriyum said the prime minister himself had suggested that a commission be formed to probe the Panama Papers, and had presented himself and his family for accountability.
The state minister congratulated PTI Chief Imran Khan for the prime minister’s ‘victory’ in the case.

“The PTI chief levelled baseless allegations against every institution and national figure of the country,” said Aurangzeb. “The politics of defaming institutions and trying to pressurise them must be abandoned.”
She also criticised the opposition party saying it has done nothing except protest since the 2013 elections, and the people will hold political parties accountable for their performance in next year’s general elections.
She said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was bringing peace and stability to the country, and with the implementation of the China-Pakistan trade corridor, economic indicators have been improving.
Earlier, addressing a ceremony at a local school in Rawalpindi, Marriyum said under the Prime Minister's Education Reform Policy, curriculum is being revised to cater to the changing time but also remain in line with national values and ideology.
“The syllabus from grade one to ten is being made available online so students can access them easily,” she said, adding increased collaboration between public and private sector schools will improve the quality of early education.
