Khawaja Asif lambasts government’s foreign policy
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) stalwart Khawaja Asif said on Wednesday said the nation had to face embarrassment owing to the government’s foreign policy performance.
Addressing the National Assembly, he took a jibe at incumbent government and its foreign policies. He said that Pakistan suffered a setback following India’s refusal to hold a meeting between foreign ministers of the two countries.
He mocked government, saying, “When Prime Minister Imran Khan visited Saudi Arabia, PTI leaders said he brought back ’10 arab’ but it is yet to be ascertained whether they meant 10 Arabs or Rs10 billion.”
Khawaja Asif said the government’s mini budget has triggered inflation in the country. He also said that the foreign minister should forcefully raise the issue of Kashmir dispute and the plight of Kashmiri people at the forum of UN General Assembly session.
“Doubts were also created over China-Pakistan Economic Corridor,” he asserted. Further lashing out at the government, the PML-N leader said, “An announcement regarding granting citizenship to Afghan refugees was later turned into a proposal.”
On the other hand, Sardar Akhtar Mengal said the mini budget will directly or indirectly impact the common man. He also voiced concerns over the increase in gas price.
He further said that Balochistan is not being provided electricity as per its requirement. He demanded construction of dams as well as health and education facilities in Balochistan.
