“The PTI has not and cannot close the Nato supply line,” said adviser to Prime Minister and central vice president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Amir Muqam on his visit to Swabi on Thursday.
In his visit to meet Swabi chapter leader Rab Nawaz Khan, Muqam told journalists the Nato protest is for ‘political scoring’. “They stop the containers for a little while after which the containers pass through the same route all night to enter Afghanistan,” said Muqam, alleging the party leadership is trying to fool the nation.
Talking about Imran Khan’s ‘dual policy’ Muqam said on one hand Khan was protesting while on the other hand he was accepting US aid for new projects in K-P. He said when the sit-in started, there were around 3,000 people but the number decreased till it reached 50. He added that the PTI was governing the province from Punjab.
Lashing out at the ANP leadership, Muqam said that the party leadership is revealing its own secrets, “Now everyone knows how ANP served Pukhtuns when they were ruling,” he said.
