Shah Mehmood Qureshi

MULTAN: Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Friday said that politics of confrontation was not a part of PTI’s policy and government did not have authority to send anyone to jail.

Talking to media person during a dinner organized by UC Chairman Sajid Nawaz Khokar here, Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that courts were independent and their verdicts would be implemented.

He said that not even a single case had been initiated in the incumbent government’s tenure against opposition parties.

He said there was rule of law in the country, adding that Prime Minister Imran Khan also presented himself before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in helicopter case despite the fact that the case was not important.

FM Qureshi added that some elements were creating hurdles in establishment of South Punjab as separate province by spreading various rumours. He urged media persons to play an active role in discouraging such elements.

He said that two third majority was needed to get resolution passed for establishment of South Punjab and the incumbent government was striving hard to get support from all apposition parties for this purpose.

He said the funds of South Punjab were allocated in the past but later shifted to other cities instead of this area which was already deprived of basic facilities.

He said that sub-secretariat would be established in the current fiscal year and separate public service commission would also be established to provide maximum job opportunities to the people of this area.

FM Qureshi maintained that all state entities were facing deficit when PTI came into power.
