FAISALABAD: Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Mian Farrukh Habib has said that Shehbaz Sharif tried to flee the country in the dark of night. When they are in power, they do not leave the country, they run away later. These are thieves, they will be held accountable. Prime Minister Imran Khan will not give NRO to anyone. If Imran Khan backs down, they will start celebrating.
Talking to the media on Market Committee Dijkot Road, he said that Imran Khan’s visit to Saudi Arabia would strengthen the ties between the two countries. Imran Khan has taken up Islamophobia at the state level. The sentiments of 1.5 billion Muslims have been hurt. Such freedom of expression cannot be allowed. Imran Khan’s efforts to unite the Muslim Ummah are welcome. The West needs to be persuaded that we do not accept any freedom of expression that offends 1.5 billion Muslims. We need to follow the system of the state of Madinah, which will improve our system.
The state minister said that in our government the farmer has got more than Rs 1,100 billion, today the farmers across the country are getting the right rate of potato, maize, and sugarcane. We are reducing the role of the middlemen in what comes to the market from the farmer. Earlier, a farmer could get a tractor by mortgaging the land. Now, a farmer can get a tractor on a single-digit interest. Our agricultural sector has not been the focus of attention due to previous governments. The present government is subsidizing farmers in wheat worth Rs 500 billion and has also issued farmer cards Now agricultural tools are going to be part of the successful youth program.
Mian Farrukh Habib said that the unreasonable noise of inflation is from the opposition and now the prices of things are coming down. Onions are being sold at Rs 25 per kg. Sugar is being sold at Rs 65 per kg in the Ramadan bazaar. There is a rush in some places but the supply is getting equal. Everyone is getting relief. Bilawal should tell how many times the Chief Minister of Sindh visited the markets, give relief to the people of Sindh, he should pay attention to alleviate the poverty of the people. After the 18th amendment, it is also the responsibility of the provincial governments to control the rate.
“Coronavirus is a deadly epidemic, so take care of SOPs and wear a mask,” he added. The Prime Minister of Pakistan has laid the foundation stone of the Nia Ghar Housing Scheme across the country. Faisal’s journalists will soon be allotted a journalist colony, for which the FDA has allocated space. We will include journalists in health cards and colonies. The High Court bench should be in Faisalabad. I support that.
