Murad called on the opposition to learn about the history of the introduction of their leaders in politics
ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Minister of Communication and Postal Services Murad Saeed has said that leaders of opposition parties who oppose the legitimacy of the currently elected government must read Pakistan’s political history to find out how and by whom their leaders Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Nawaz Shairf was introduced.
Speaking at a press conference here, he said the Pakistanis remembered how Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was installed in Sikander Mirza’s cabinet by writing a letter full of flattery and with the name he called Ayub Khan, after the latter was in power.
About Nawaz Sharif, he said the former prime minister was launched by General Zia and General Jeelani and Islamic Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) was established to bring him to power.
He said Shahbaz Sharif even today sought out “selectors” to get the chance to become prime minister. He said that PML-N leader Khawaja Asif was recorded in a television interview in the US that Imran Khan was a religious-minded person, while his party was a liberal who could serve US interests better.
Murad said instead Imran Khan founded Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in 1996 and fought for more than 22 years before coming to power.
He said Imran Khan was offered the post of prime minister after the 2002 election he rejected. He said the PTI came to power in the KPK in 2013 and in 2018 at the center with mass support that voted for the country’s most popular politician, Imran Khan.
He said it was strange that Chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari whose entire family faced corruption and money laundering cases accused others of corruption.
Murad said in a JIT report about fake accounts and sugar fraud, Zardari’s name was mentioned but his son gave a lecture on morality and truth. He said every Pakistani knew that the funds allocated for health, education and other Sindh sectors were transferred to the accounts of Asif Zardari and Faryal Talpur.
He said Bilawal had a habit of giving speeches at the National Assembly and immediately left home because he could not hear the response of a PTI worker. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was subject to PPP as chairman and he did not know that political parties were responsible to the masses and the media.
Murad Saeed said that after 50 years, over the past year Kashmir’s problems have been discussed at the UN Security Council twice which is evidence that the Kashmir case has been successfully advocated by Prime Minister Imran Khan in an international forum. He reminded that when Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi came to Islamabad, the PPP government at that time removed the Kashmir House sign.
Likewise, he said the PML-N government was reluctant to mention the name Kalbhoshan Yadev.
The minister asks the opposition to act responsibly if several laws are being carried out in accordance with ICJ rules. He recalled that it was the previous government that accepted ICJ jurisdiction in the Indian spy case, about which Law Minister Farough Naseem made a speech and said that it was a mistake.
He warned that it was a statement Nawaz Sharif used by India to benefit him in the ICJ. He said that today Pakistan is known for tourism, not terrorism as in the opposition term and Pakistan has gained respect in the freshness of the nations, thanks to the leadership of Imran Kahn.
He said it was Imran Khan who opposed the cases of Islam, Pakistan and Kashmir in the international struggle, whereas in the past they had surrendered before a request to “do more”. He said they freed Raymond Davis, a Pakistani citizen killer and allowed drone strikes in the tribal areas.
He said Imran did not have a camp office and paid from his own pocket for the path to the residence and fence.
Murad said there were no Imran relatives who accompanied him on his overseas visits and there were no private overseas visits. He mentioned that Asif Zardari spent Rs 3,164,100,000 on foreign trips as president and more than 800 people were mobilized for his security, while at his residence around 2000 people had security duties.
Likewise, he said that the visit of former PM Nawaz Sharif and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi proved expensive to the national finance minister.
Taking about the sugar fraud, he said for the first time such an investigation was carried out and his findings were published and now steps were being taken by the relevant departments to take the elements responsible for his duties and his credit fell to Prime Minister Imran Khan.
He said flour prices had risen in the country because large amounts of wheat were stolen from Sindh warehouses which created a commodity shortage.
The minister said the government, in the form of the Ehsaas program, announced the largest program in the country’s history to support segments of the poor.
He said the Ehsaas Program budget had been increased from Rs192 billion to Rs 208 billion this year and its scope was also being expanded.
He said more than 200 shelter homes had been set up throughout the country for poor people.
The minister said the government was carrying out operations against land grabbing and taking land worth billions of rupees.
He said the government had quickly tracked work on CPEC projects and started construction of three dams that would not only create employment opportunities but also meet water and energy needs.
Murad said the latest government policies of the Pakistan People’s Party and the Pakistan-Nawaz Muslim League had destroyed public sector institutions including the PIA, and Pakistan Steel Mills.
He said the opposition demanded the closure of the National Accountability Bureau because they wanted to commit corruption without fear of accountability but PTI would never let them do it.

Under the agreement, the publisher will remove the ‘Seven Foolish Men’ story from a fifth grade English book. The publisher said during Jirga that he had removed the controversial subject and would now lift all copies of the book from the market. The publisher also received another demand from the lawyer that he would write a positive subject about Buneris which would be included in the book replacing the negative subject. Under the agreement, the Gaba Publisher will also issue an apology from the Buners in the Urdu and British newspapers published in Karachi and Peshawar.
Controversial subjects are being taught for several years in private schools. This issue caught the attention of someone who shared it on social media and immediately turned into a movement.
Another applicant, Aziz Buneri said when speaking with TNN that he was satisfied with the agreement and now students would read about Buner’s history instead of degrading subjects. He said this was a good development that the publisher had realized his mistake.
