PTI lawmakers getting benefits despite tendering resignations a year ago: Khawaja Asif

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif has said that the PTI lawmakers are getting benefits despite tendering resignations a year ago.

Addressing a press conference on Monday, he said that now the PTI MNAs are hankering after their return as the Imran project had failed. "The elections will be held on time and they will come to know about their position," he maintained.

He said that the nation and the institutions cannot pay price for the wrong decisions of Imran Khan.

Khawaja Asif said that objections to the appointment of Mohsin Naqvi as caretaker chief minister are unjustified. "We will contest the legal battle of matter is taken to court," he maintained.

APP adds: The minister clarified that the nominees presented by PTI and others did not have good exercise as one the nominee a serving government employee and the other was a dual national. “Their vetting was not good for these nominees. So that’s why they had to face humiliation in this case,” he added.

He said that the government’s nominees had one ex-civil servant and one media personality. “The PTI also gave the name of another honourable bureaucrat who himself apologised to take the task. Hence the PTI’s objection on Naqvi’s appointment is a fake cry,” he added.
