JHELUM: Information and Broadcasting Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain has said Pakistan is a peace loving country and it has always condemned terrorism even if it happens in India. He said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has no enmity with the opposition, but it will not compromise the accountability process. He said those, who have looted Pakistan’s wealth will have to give answer about their plunder.

Addressing a public gathering in Jhelum on Sunday, he said the people of Pakistan and its armed forces are standing by the side of peace and they will not allow India or anyone else to cast an evil eye on Pakistan.

The Minister said Prime Minister Imran Khan, just after taking oath of his office, has invited India to take one step towards peace and Pakistan will take tow in that direction. He said Pakistan is still standing by the offer made by Imran Khan.

He said Prime Minister Imran Khan’s efforts for peace have earned commendations across the globe. He said Imran Khan should be awarded Nobel Prize for Peace due to his efforts for stability and tranquility in the region.

He said it is unfortunate that a faction within PML-N is doing politics on Nawaz Sharif’s health. He said the government has offered Nawaz Sharif to get his treatment at any health facility in Pakistan and we are also ready to facilitate if the former prime minister wants to invite a doctor, on his own expenses, from abroad. He said politics should not be done on accountability or the health of an individual.

He said Sharif’s continued refusal to be shifted to the hospital of his choice for treatment of his cardiac disease made it seem like it wasn’t a matter of treatment, “but of politics”.

“Nawaz Sharif might not be doing this himself, but there is a section within N-league that is doing politics on his health because they have no public issue on which they can do politics,” the minister alleged.

He also responded to the statement given earlier in the day by senior PPP leader Syed Khursheed Shah, who said Sharif was not in a good health and “if something happens to him it would be murder for which Imran Khan will be responsible”.

“You are not worried about Nawaz Sharif, you are concerned about yourself being sent to jail,” Chaudhry retorted, addressing Shah. He was the “misdeeds” committed by the PPP leaders were before everyone to see.

The Minister said Pakistan has started a new journey on the path of development in the leadership of Imran Khan, which will yield good results in all sectors.
