The federal ministers have came forward slamming the opposition’s All Parties Conference, held on Sunday.

Pakistan’s leading opposition parties came together to devise an anti-government strategy at the APC hosted by the PPP in Islamabad.

Reacting to the APC,  Information and Broadcasting Minister Senator Shibli Faraz termed the meeting a “flimsy attempt to put pressure on the govt to back off on accountability”.

“Nation has witnessed that the opposition has used politics for personal gains and used the parliament to protect their personal empires. Imran Khan will never comprise on his commitment to [eradicating] corruption/ Hence no NRO,” he  further added.

Federal Minister for Marine Affairs Ali Zaidi in a tweet said that “Today, Nawaz Sharif has declared war with the entire Pakistani nation!”

“He says that his feud is not with Imran Khan, it is with those who brought [him] to power. [PTI] has come to power with the votes of 17 million people … not with the help of a ‘chit’!”, he added in his tweet.

Federal Minister for Planning Asad Umar reacting to the APC,  said that the PML-N leader must recognise that the “people actually did respect the vote in the 2018 election and used it wisely”.

“The result was that as soon as [Nawaz] was relieved of power, he had to hatch a scheme and flee the country,” he added.

Meanwhile, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said: “One more episode of the ‘abbu bachao’ (save our fathers) campaign has flopped. What better proof of media freedom than the fact that Nawaz’s speech was shown live.”

Responding to Nawaz’s remarks regarding Pakistan being subjected to military rule for 33 years,  Fawad Chaudhry further added that the PML-N supremo “was himself a part of the system for 15 years and served as a puppet”.
