Govt not stopped PTI to hold its public gathering in Sialkot: Information Minister


Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb says the government has not stopped PTI to hold its public gathering in Sialkot.

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad today [Saturday], she said the PTI has been holding gatherings over the last few weeks. We are not scared of the speeches of former Prime Minister Imran Khan as these are only exposing his own mindset to the public.

The Information Minister said it was informed to the PTI that the Christian Community does not want to give the Church Ground in Sialkot for a public gathering as there has been no such political activity there before. She said we offered an alternative place for the public gathering following the reservations of the Christian Community.

Marriyum Aurangzeb said that it is our duty to protect the rights of the Christians. She said the PTI should also have shown respect to the rights and sentiments of the Christians.

The Information Minister regretted that former Prime Minister Imran Khan is using the helicopter of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for his public gatherings.

The Information Minister said that the economy was destroyed by the PTI government during its four year tenure.
