ISLAMABAD, Nov 2 (APP): Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif
and the federal cabinet on Wednesday appreciated the efforts of
Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan for “handling onslaught
and lock down of Islamabad”.

Chairing the cabinet meeting here, the Prime Minister lauded the Interior minister for doing his duty to protect the state.

The Prime Minister said the role of law enforcement institutions in establishing writ of state was “commendable”.

The Interior minister said he performed his duties under the guidance and leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and expressed gratitude to him for his confidence and support.

He paid compliments to police and Frontier Constabulary, which he said stood by state and law.

Earlier, the cabinet meeting started with recitation of Quranic verses offered by State Minister for Religious Affairs and Inter-faith Harmony Pir Amin ul Hasnat.

The cabinet offered fateha for the martyrs of Police Training College, Quetta and for those who lost lives in a fire incident at Gaddani shipyard.

Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif said, “whether there are any doubts in the Supreme Court about the maintainability of this petition, but I have stopped from lawyers from debating or questioning the maintainability and have asked them to let the petition admit.”

“The accusers will Insha Allah face embarrassment. They had to face embarrassment after decision of 2014 Commission as well. But they never expressed their regrets even after wasting 126 days of the nation and economic losses,” he remarked.

The Prime Minister said Alhamdulillah, after 2014 Allah Almighty blessed them (PML-N) with successes in Cantonment Board, Local Bodies, Gilgit Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir elections.

“Now we have to work hard even more, and have to work day and night for the resolution of masses’ problems and economic uplift,” he added.

The Prime Minister referred to the recent visits of the Managing Director of International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the President of Asian Development Bank (ADB) and said they were appreciative of the country’s economic development.

“Alhamdulillah, we have concluded our programme with the IMF, and it is for the first time in Pakistan’s history that we have completed the economic reforms programme,” he maintained.
