ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Fawad Chaudhry, on Sunday responded Khursheed Shah’s allegations, saying that the politician’s played a bigger role in destroying national institutions.
In his latest Twitter message, Fawad Chaudhry said that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader should remember his wrongdoings and stop selling Benazir and Bhutto’s names.
The information minister said that Shah has a bigger part in the destruction of institutions as he was the chairman of a committee which had stacked political appointments in past.
Slamming the PPP leader, he continued that Khursheed Shah was the ‘biggest worm’ among termites which ate roots of the national institutions.
Earlier in the day, Syed Khursheed Shah, while severely criticising the PTI government, alleged the incumbent government is “a model of dictators”.
“The civilian dictator system has taken over in the country,” he said while addressing a public gathering in Pano Akil.
“I don’t accept that there is democracy in our country. They have ripped democracy into pieces,” Shah said.
“Today, farmers and labourers are crying. Pakistan is going down,” he said, adding “when we come out against inflation they [the government] say we are saving ourselves but in fact we want to save Pakistan and the poor.”
Slamming the government’s decision to rename Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP), he said he feared the government may also remove the father of the nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s image from currency notes.
“You can’t remove Benazir’s name from the hearts of people. This is a name of democracy, ” the PPP leader said. “They [government] are a bubble of water and will die down one day.”
