Shehbaz Sharif won’t be allowed to go abroad, says Shibli Faraz
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Federal Minister for Information Shibli Faraz has said that Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif will not be allowed to go abroad.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, he said that the government is considering placing Shehbaz Sharif’s name on the exit control list. “Locusts of politics are very active these days. The objective of disseminating Nawaz Sharif’s picture was to tell all is fine,” he added.
The minister dispelled the impression of victimization of the political opponents, saying the accountability process will go ahead. “Future belongs only to those parties who believe in the service of the public.”
Shibli Faraz said that action would be taken against the mafias who held the country’s economy hostage for their own vested interests.
He appealed to the people to strictly follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs) in the face of rising cases of coronavirus otherwise the government will be compelled to again enforce the lockdown. “The people did not follow the precautionary measures in the wake of easing of restrictions. Restrictions have been eased to provide livelihood opportunities to the weaker segments of the society,” he added.
Shibli Faraz said that the government is pursuing a very well organized and coordinated strategy to curb the spread of coronavirus. “All relevant departments are working in close coordination to address the issue of locusts. A well-thought strategy just like Covid-19 is being followed to make the fight against the crop munching pests successful,” he said.
Parliamentary Secretary for Railways Farrukh Habib said that the Sharif family is a foundry of forgery. “Prime Minister Imran Khan has exposed the mafia and the money plundered by the corrupt elements will be recovered and spent on the poor,” he added.
