Information minister criticises PTI chairman for not naming US in drone FIR.
LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan is bent on ruining Pakistan’s relations with other countries, said Federal Information Minister Pervaiz Rasheed on Sunday.
Criticising the PTI chief for not naming the US in the FIR against drone strikes, Rasheed questioned if Imran does not know who is conducting the missile strikes.
Commenting on the PTI sit-ins to block Nato supply routes, the information minister said there is no point in holding protests on Saturday and Sunday as no truck passes through Pakistan on the weekends.
He further added that the supply routes are used to transport food and not ammunition.
The information minister had criticised PTI earlier as well, saying that the party should avoid a “contradiction” between words and deeds. “Imran Khan’s heart beats for the Taliban but his sword serves the US,” Rasheed had said.
The minister had added that projects worth millions of dollars were being run with US aid in K-P, adding that Imran was surrounded by people who had allowed drone attacks and celebrated a former dictator’s coup d’etat.
