What happened 12 years ago is happening again today, says Khawaja Asif

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Minister for Defence Khawaja Asif has said that the PTI government was removed through a constitutional way.

Speaking at the National Assembly session, Khawaja Asif said that a person is blackmailing the state after being ousted from the government. “The PTI government was removed through a constitutional way and its chairman is now trying to blackmail and take hostage the state. Everyone has to come together to solve the country's problems.”

Khawaja Asif said that whatever happened 12 years ago is happening again today. "Bleeding wounds are being scraped." 

He also alluded to the devastation caused by floods in the country, saying that the political leadership should take the initiative to find a permanent solution to the problems faced by the people of Balochistan. “We are one nation and cannot stay indifferent to the problems of any federating unit. The points raised by Akhtar Mengal regarding the Balochistan situation are genuine and there is a dire need to heal the wounds of the people of the province. The problems of Balochistan can be addressed by sitting together with the leaders and people of Balochistan.”

The minister also voiced his concern over the security situation in Swat and other areas, warning this could also spread to other areas. “Responsibility rests with all the institutions to find a solution to the threats faced by the state. I am appreciative of the people of Swat for standing up against the terrorist elements,” he concluded.
