Nation facing consequences of Imran's wrong decisions: ministers.

LAHORE -- Railways and Aviation Minister Khwaja Saad Rafique said on Sunday that the nation was facing the consequences of wrong decisions of former prime minister Imran Khan and his incompetent and ineligible government.

Addressing a joint press conference with Federal Minister for Economic Affairs Sardar Ayaz Sadiq at the Railway Headquarters here on Sunday, he said that the Imran Khan government destroyed almost every institution and department of the country. Citing the example of Pakistan Railways (PR), he said the PTI government increased deficit of the railways to Rs 45 billion, which is only one department.

He said that whatever Imran blamed on others, he himself did that, adding that he (Imran) was himself a habitual thief, looter and cheapskate. "He always keeps an eye on others' pocket," he added.

Kh Saad said that Imran was living in a 300-kanal house in Islamabad, and paid a minimal tax, but never answered the questions about his business. "He blames others that their children live abroad, but never tells that where his own children were living," he said.

The minister said that Dr Israr Ahmad (the late) and Shaheed Hakeem Saeed had long ago informed the nation that a project would be launched under Imran Khan to destabilise the country. "Now this stupid person is calling the establishment to intervene in the political affairs," he said.

Saad said that Imran Niazi always denigrated the Constitution and used foul language against those who do not toe his line. He said that Imran was a dictator by nature who did not like to listen to any other voice, adding that he (Imran) was an imbalanced and thankless person, who always damaged his friends. He said that this stupid person even did not listen to those forces who had supported him in politics. "He even does not know the names of his allies," he said.

Saad Rafique said that Niazi did everything that could destroy the country, adding that he (Imran) signed an agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) which was damaging for the country, whereas the PMLN government, before 2018, had said good bye to the IMF and reduced the load-shedding to zero.

"It was very easy for us to announce elections after successful move of no-confidence against Niazi, but no one would listen to the caretakers," he said and added that such situation would have not been good for the nation.

"You have brought the country to a point from where return is very hard," Khwaja Saad told Imran Khan.
