LAHORE: Minister of Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique said on Sunday criticised Asif Ali Zardari saying that the PPP co-chairman speaks of development in the country despite having failed to dispose of garbage in Karachi.
Addressing a rally here, Rafique said it would cause a huge loss if he disclosed everything, adding, “It has been 70 years [since the formation of Pakistan] and now we all have collective responsibility to take forth the country.”
The minister did not forget to respond to his party’s two main opponents – Asif Ali Zardari and Imran Khan – at the rally.
“Asif Ali Zardari, who failed to get trash heaps disposed of in Karachi, speaks of development in the country, while Imran Khan, who boasted of making a ‘Naya Pakistan’, is so coward that he moves to hill stations fearing dengue fever,” he said.
Rafique noted the incumbent government has only five months left in completion of its term. “If the government was not allowed to complete its term, then no future regime would be able to do so.”
He also stressed the need to stop religious extremism in the country.
“Pakistan needs an active parliament, brave military and honest bureaucracy,” the minister said
