LAHORE: Special Assistant to Punjab Chief Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that Lahorites in good conscious have shown confidence on the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan and rejected PDM’s call for a meeting.
Addressing the media during her visit to control room set up at DC office Lahore, she said that the tall claims of opposition were exposed as only a small number of people gathered at Minar-e-Pakistan. She said that leaders are born not raised in royal palaces and the leadership is not transferred through inheritance. The self-proclaimed leaders tried to put the country into crisis despite alarming corona situation in the country but the Lahorites rejected their treacherous narrative, she added.
She said that the government didn’t put any obstacle in the way of opposition in order to avoid any confrontation and to expose the political strength of PDM to the public. She said that people of Lahore pay heed to the secret message of Shehbaz Sharif and turned a deaf ear to Calibri Queen’s call for a meeting. The Calibri Queen’s efforts to double cross Shehbaz Sharif ended in vain, she further said. She said that Lahorites ruined the political agenda of PDM as only a few people attended the meeting.
Dr Firdous said that opposition held this congregation unlawfully and strict legal action will be taken against the organizers and their facilitators. She was of the view that PPP will never resign on the behest of Calibri Queen. She further said that the government foiled the attempt of PDM for political confrontation and martyrdom through her best strategy.
The government will not let the desire of opposition’s political martyrdom to be fulfilled, she added.
