Special Assistant to Chief Minister (SACM) on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Wednesday said former FIA DG Bashir Memon was levelling baseless allegations on the government after failure in getting his favourite positing.

She said the former FIA DG was trying to spread fake news and disinformation to flash in the media and to project him as innocent. “The remnants of the PML-N government are conspiring against the PTI government to spread disillusionment in the people,” she said.

“Bashir Memon’s allegations are based on political vendetta and he is trying to defame the government,” she said.

She said the Punjab government was working to provide relief to the people under the Ramazan package while ensuring strict implementation of price control mechanism.

Dr Awan said Chief Minister Usman Buzdar was actively working to monitor the situation of demand and supply of edibles to provide benefits to the masses. She said the CM has directed to contact flour mills associations to stabilise flour price.

“The government has conducted 31,000 raids, registered more than 2,000 cases and Rs50 million worth of fines were also imposed over law violation,” she said.

The SACM was of the view that the past rulers bankrupted the economy but the PTI government was improving the affairs of the state.
