RAWALPINDI – Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Saturday has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan has started ‘crying’ again after the announcement of highly-anticipated Panama case verdict.
Talking to media in Rawalpindi, Marriyum Aurangzeb said that Imran Khan is playing ‘political games’ whereas Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is also ready to accept the decision of joint investigation team (JIT).
PM is answerable to JIT but why Imran Khan and opposition parties are overreacting, she asked.
Criticizing co-chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Asif Ali Zardari, she said that Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif launched China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project for the development of Pakistan but you have even failed to clean heaps of garbage in Karachi.
She strongly denounced statement of Aitzaz Ahsan regarding defence department.
On the occasion, information minister said under the Prime Minister’s Education Reform Policy, curriculum is being revised to cater the changing tones of time in line with our national values and ideology.
She said unfortunately due to absence of child friendly content on internet our children are wasting their time and energy in useless surfing. She also asserted that increased collaboration between public and private schools will help enhance quality of early childhood education.
Earlier, opposition senators participated in the Senate and National Assembly sessions with black ribbons tied on their arms as a gesture to record protest and unanimously demanded PM Nawaz Sharif to step down from the post till completion of probe by the JIT.
On April 20, Justice Asif Saeed Khosa announced Panama Leaks case decision comprising of 540 pages. The court issued a split ruling calling for a joint investigation team of National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), State Bank of Pakistan, Inter-Services Intelligence and Military Intelligence that will be headed by a director-general level FIA officer.
“A thorough investigation is required,” Justice Asif Saeed Khosa said.
Two of the five judges went further, branding Sharif “dishonest” and saying he should be disqualified, but they were outnumbered. The bench further directed to form JIT within seven days, and present report within 60 days.
The case against Sharif stems from documents leaked from the Panama-based Mossack Fonseca law firm, which appeared to show that his daughter and two sons owned offshore holding companies and used them to buy properties in London.
