Accuses federal govt of diverting people’s attention from problems

LAHORE:

Punjab Chief Minister's Information Adviser Omar Sarfaraz Cheema has said that the 'incompetent' PDM is playing havoc with the national economy and levelling false allegations against its opponents.

Addressing a press conference, he said the PML-N propaganda cell had hatched a conspiracy against the Punjab government, former prime minister Imran Khan and national institutions.

He said the federal government was striving to divert people's attention from their problems. The adviser said talk of differences between Imran Khan and the Punjab government was baseless and the PTI chairman was being informed about all the government measures. He said reports about Imran Khan issuing orders to the inspector general of prisons was propaganda.

Omar Sarfaraz Cheema alleged that the Islamabad police, at the behest of the federal government, had committed worst physical and mental torture on PTI leader Shahbaz Gill.

He alleged that efforts were being made to extract a statement from Gill in which other PTI leaders could be implicated. If someone had committed any mistake then the matter had to be decided by the courts, he added.

Cheema said the federal government was a threat for the country and democracy.

The PDM wants to create a rift between the PTI and the institutions and wants to drag the country towards a civil war, he alleged and added, “We do not want to become a part of any conspiracy which can damage democracy.
