The former railways minister said that this is first government which is trying to spread unrest in the country. He vowed to continue their struggle through platform of PDM.

Khawaja Saad Rafique said that a dictatorship has been imposed in the country under the guise of democracy. PTI damaged image of Pakistan internationally with incidents like seizure of PIA plane by Malaysian authorities and fake pilot license issue, he added.

He also asked government to stop political revenge in the name of accountability and warned that if government did not end the practice, PTI will also get taste of its own medicine.

He strongly reacted to arrest of Khawaja Muhammad Asif and said that there is no connection between accountability and these arrests and claimed that soon the PML-N will be vindicated. He said that these arrests are the worst example of the political victimization. He said that in Pakistan dictatorship has been imposed on the name of democracy. He said that Khawaja Asif has been arrested on the demand of blue eyed. He said that instead of the Supreme Court of Pakistan verdicts, Khawaja Asif has been arrested in a fake case. He said that Khawaja Asif will soon come out after succeeding, adding that no one could be kept behind the bars for whole life. He said that our voice could not be silenced instead of arrests, adding that the victimization process on the name of accountability is not coming to an end.

He said that it the effort of the government 24/7 to create unrest in the country. He said that if the current government will continue in then the future of the country is not bright. He said that for taking the country towards progress, the current government will have to be sent packing. He said that every week the prices of something are increased, adding that the government has just increased the petroleum prices and now it is going to increase the electricity price.

Saad Rafique said that PTI government has taken more loans as compared to the five years of the PML-N government. He said that the government of Imran Khan has not started any mega project in the country during the last two and half years. He said that PTI could not run the country and it could run something else.

Replying a question, Saad Rafique said that it is style that prior to apprehending someone his character assassination is carried out and after arrest he is behind the bars and could not speak so release news stories about him, adding that this all is character assassination campaign and at the end of the day nothing will come out. He said that false case could be lodged but one could not be hanged in fake case.
