Hammad regrets over regime change attempts under int’l conspiracy
Public had given mandate to the PTI in 2018 general elections
ISLAMABAD: Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar expressed serious concerns over the attempts being made to topple the democratically elected government under an international conspiracy.
Speaking on a point of order in the National Assembly, he said there were proofs of foreign elements’ involvement in the regime change plot.
He said the government wanted to share the evidences and contents of the “Threat Letter” with the leadership of opposition parties, but unfortunately, they refused to attend the in-camera meeting of the Parliamentary Committee on National Security convened by the Speaker National Assembly.
The minister said the public had given the mandate to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in 2018 general elections as the party had won 156 seats.
Now in the prevailing political scenario and fail the international conspiracy, he said the government was of the view to go for the early election to get afresh mandate, but the opposition parties were avoiding facing the masses. Earlier talking to the media at Supreme Court premises, accompanied by Information Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain, he said the prime minister had not only exposed the foreign plot against a democratically elected government but also exposed the ‘unholy alliance’ among the leaders of opposition parties. The conspiracy was clearly rejected by the masses with a show of massive presence at the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) public gathering, he said, adding the response to the PM’s call was unprecedented. Hammad said people enthusiastically participated the gathering from across the country which showed that nation stood by the prime minister at this critical juncture.
To a query, he said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz had a tradition to attack the institutions in a systematic way. It may work once or twice, he said and made it clear that the PTI government would not let the PML-N to execute the conspiracy this time.
