ISLAMABAD: Member of the National Assembly (MNA) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar said on Tuesday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has promoted Western agenda in Pakistan as changing the condition of police stations, hospitals and roads is not development.
He also said that the agreement with Tehreek-e-Labaik Ya Rasool Allah (TLYR) protesters was made “somewhere else”.
Speaking with journalists after his hearing on Tuesday at the accountability court, he said: “had the agreement been with the government, the protesters would not have waited for 22 days. The agreement happened from somewhere else,” he said. “It is unfortunate that, in Pakistan, energy savers are in Lahore but the UPS are in Rawalpindi.”
He further said that there was not only one hand, but “many shoulders, hands, ladders, cranes” behind the religious group’s protest against the government.
Without naming any individual or institution, the PML-N leader said that prime ministers like Moeen Qureshi and Shaukat Aziz are wanted here but from now onwards such precedents won’t continue.
The PML-N leader said that Nawaz was ousted from the premiership because he is “made in Pakistan”.
Responding to a question regarding Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), he said that according to the Charter of Democracy, he would not say anything against Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. “PPP is a democratic party, I would not utter anything against Bilawal,” he added.
