ISLAMABAD, Oct 16 (APP):Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain Friday said the government was ready to sit with the opposition parties on different public interest issues, except giving relaxation in their corruption cases.
There was no compromise on accountability process against opposition’s bigwigs including former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, former president Asif Ali Zardari, opposition leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz because they had looted the national exchequer ruthlessly during their tenure in public offices, he said talking to a private news channel.

The Pakistan Peoples’ Party and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz had no public support, he said adding that Maulana Fazlur Rehman was inciting and using students of seminaries as a shield to achieve his political goals, but he would be failed in do so.
