Federal Minister for Climate Change Senator Sherry Rehman on Saturday said that PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s refusal to attend the All Parties Conference (APC) reflected that his priorities did not align with Pakistan’s security and interests.
“As Pakistan goes through a time of great crisis, it is unfortunate to witness that Imran Khan continues to act out a narrative that has lost its relevance and credibility,” she said in a statement.
“By calling the APC, the coalition government is trying to bring the country’s political leadership on one page to discuss collective strategies to overcome the challenges the country is facing, but Khan’s politics of polarisation only diminishes the national unity needed to fight national threats, particularly terrorism, on which he still signals ambiguity,” she added.
The federal minister maintained that the PTI chief’s refusal to attend the committee meeting at Peshawar Governor House reflected “Imran’s selfish brand of politics”. “He has once again shown that PTIs politics is more important than saving Pakistan.”
