Hamza protest stance geared to protect ‘father’

LAHORE, Oct 25 (APP):Punjab Minister for Information and Culture Fayyazul Hassan Chohan Thursday said that on-going accountability process would meet its logical end, despite hue and cry raised by a club of corrupt persons.
“Hamza’s boycott to Assembly’s proceedings is nothing other than attention diversion from his father (Shehbaz)’s corruption,” he remarked while talking to media-persons outside the Punjab assembly.
He said PTI government was speedily implementing its people friendly agenda and leaving no stone unturned in taking practical steps to make the country economically strong and prosperous.
He said Prime Minister Imran Khan, through his recent televised address to the nation, once again won hearts of the nation. “We pay tributes to the Prime Minister for his bold policies,” he added.
He said across the board accountability was top agenda of the government and they would not spare any corrupt person whether he was from PTI or any other political party.
Commenting on the opposition’s proposed All Parties Conference (APC), information minister said opposition
leaders lost their credibility, saying, JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman was convenor of ‘Loot Mar Association’.
He said the proposed APC was nothing but a threat in the guise of democracy and politics to blackmail the government.
He stressed that there would be no National Reconciliation Order (NRO) as the nation expected ruthless
accountability from PTI leadership.
Information minister was all praise for Speaker Punjab Assembly Pervaiz Elahi, saying, Hamza Shehbaz had personal clash with him.
He said not the whole opposition but PML-N only was protesting in the Punjab Assembly. “PPP and Rah e Haq party lawmakers are in the House”, he said.
He advised the opposition leader to meet assembly’s Business Advisory Committee and discuss his issues.
