ISLAMABAD:

The top leadership of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) received the policy line from the party supremo Nawaz Sharif to purge the country of the “filth” spread by the previous Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government in the past four years, three government ministers said on Thursday.

Talking to media after the meeting in London on Thursday, Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb and Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said that all efforts were being made to take the country out of the current economic and constitutional crises.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif led a 10-member ministerial delegation to London on Wednesday to hold consultative meetings with PML-N Quaid and three times former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. On Thursday, they discussed the ongoing political, economic and constitutional crises.

Talking to media after the meeting, Sanaullah, the interior minister, said that the policy line that the government needed from the leadership regarding the filth spread during the last four years had been received from the PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif.

“Nawaz Shairf’s vision will soon be implemented with the consent of government allies,” the minister said. “All the decisions to steer the country out of the economic and constitutional crisis will soon be announced after taking the government allies into confidence,” he added.

The ministers said that the party leadership was given briefings on the prevailing crisis and consultations were held on various proposals for taking the country out of the dire straits and ways to deal with the violators of the Constitution.

Sanaullah said that former prime minister Imran Khan destroyed the national economy and damaged political values, adding that Imran was dividing the whole nation and misleading the youth. “Imran Khan promoted a culture of rudeness in the country’s politics,” he added.

Reiterating that Nawaz had given the guidance on the prevailing issues, Sanaullah said that the PML-N Quaid made it clear that action should be taken against those violating the Constitution. “Not only the economy, but also the politics of lies will be fixed.”

He stressed that all the legal requirements for action against the violators of the Constitution would be met. “There is zero tolerance for violation of the Constitution,” he said. “No-one will be allowed to spread chaos and anarchy in the country.”

Responding to a question, the interior minister said that the decision regarding the PTI’s upcoming long march would be taken by the coalition cabinet. He added that Imran was misleading the youth for his own political gains.

“During the last four years, the country and its economy have been destroyed, the political traditions have been trampled with, Imran Khan is introducing a culture of rudeness in the country, dividing the nation and misleading the youth,” Sanaullah said.

Iqbal, the planning minister, said that Imran Khan was running “an organised campaign against institutions, as he wanted to create a situation of civil war in the country. To deal with the ongoing crisis, Iqbal said, immediate decision making was needed.

Finance Minister Miftah Ismail, who was also present in the meeting in London, said that Pakistan had received a bulk of the £190 million seized in London and asked Imran to explain as to whose account the money was transferred to.

Alleging that Farah Gogi, a close friend of former first lady, was given recruitment authority in Punjab in exchange for money, Miftah questioned under which law she was allowed to do so. “Did Farah Gogi share this money with anyone or keep it herself,” he questioned.
