ISLAMABAD, Aug 17 (APP): Minister of State for Interior,
Federal Education and Professional Training, Engr Muhammad Baleegh
Ur Rehman Wednesday said that the government wanted accountability against corrupt people across the board.

Talking to a private news channel, he said the name of Prime
Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif was not mentioned in Panama Papers.

The minister said the name of several opposition leaders
were mentioned in Panama Papers but the opposition framed their
Terms of Reference (ToR) on Panama Papers a person specific.

He said the government was ready to resolve the matter of
ToR through parliamentary committee.

He said the opposition could not achieve anything from its
protest demonstration and reference against the Prime Minister as he (PM) had launched several mega projects during ongoing tenure and not a single case of corruption had been surfaced.

The government had launched China Pakistan Economic Corridor
(CPEC) and it would bring economic revolution in the country, he added.

Baleegh ur Rehman said the government had achieved immense
success in improving national economy, law and order and energy issues. There was massive improvement in all sectors due to prudent policies of the government.

All national institutions are effectively working for the
welfare and uplift of the country, he said.

Replying to a question, he urged Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf
(PTI) to do positive politics despite levelling allegations
against government without evidence.
