ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan asked the federal government why haven’t they put the house in order in the last four years.
Reacting to Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif’s controversial statement, in which he said that Pakistan must bring its house in order to prevent facing embarrassment on the international level, Imran asked: “Did the government realise today that they have to bring their house in order?”
Imran was addressing a press conference in the federal capital on Sunday.
They [Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders] are giving Pakistan Army a bad name, said Imran.
He further claimed, “All political parties agreed on the National Action Plan.”
“We had no foreign minister when our policy towards Afghanistan was formulated,” he said.
Over PTI’s defeat in NA-120 by-poll, which was held on September 17, Imran said that it is embarrassing that a disqualified person is still the leader of a party.
“It is saddening to hear Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi say that Nawaz is his PM.”
We are scared regarding the situation in the country, he said, adding that the country’s economy is in a harrowing condition.
On the Electoral Reforms Bill 2017, which was passed in the Senate on September 22, he remarked that the bill seeks to ridicule the democracy.
The bill also enables the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to scrutinise election expenses within 90 days, failing which election expenses submitted by a political party would be deemed to be correct.
The bill also states that any parliamentary could only be disqualified for a period of five years.
Moreover, it states that ECP will be an independent and autonomous body, which will formulate its own law and party funding details will be available online.
The bill restricts the caretaker government from making any policy decisions.
