MULTAN: Senior politician Javed Hashmi said Nawaz Sharif was arrested before general elections and now Shehbaz Sharif was taken into custody just ahead of by-polls. Hashmi deemed such occurrences as unfair.
He was addressing a press conference on Friday. He said the parliament had been created and should complete its tenure of five years. Some politicians have said that the PTI government cannot even last for two years. “PTI has made by-elections a matter of life and death. Imran Khan has still not left “container politics” which caused me to leave the party.”
The head of parliament has been arrested in the Ashiyana Housing Scheme, he said, adding that this government just wanted to destroy the institution. Hashmi said that the government has taken many u-turns. “I am sure it’s cabinet will be increased and more people will join the party. Aleem Khan is the actual Chief Minister of Punjab instead of Usman Buzdaar.”
