Rana mocks PTI govt on taking credit for PMLN projects

PMLN leader Rana Sanaullah has criticised Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government for its "sheer mismanagement".

At a press conference on Sunday, he said that "you can see the government’s [bad] performance in the last 18 months [as a testimony to my claims]".

He also jeered at the leaders of ruling party for taking credit for the projects that he said were actually launched by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government.

Lashing out at the PM, Rana said, “Imran Khan talked about the common man. What did he do for the poor other than withdrawing subsidies worth billions of rupees?”

He said one of the two highlights of Prime Minister Imran Khan's recent visit to Lahore was his launching of Sehat Insaf Card for the poor which was actually a PMLN project.

The PTI government withdrew the health cards issued by PMLN under Pakistan Sehat Card project and relaunched the same project with a new name, he claimed.

Talking about another key engagement of the PM during his Lahore visit i.e. his visit to the Safe City Authority, Rana said that the Authority was not made according to the vision envisaged by their government.

 “Lahore could have been a crime-free city if this government focused on the Safe City Project.”

The PMLN leader said that the 4,000 cameras installed under this project [by the PMLN government] are lying dysfunctional.

Rana also laughed about PTI leader Shafqat Mahmood's inaugurating the Eastern Bypass in Lahore, which he said was another PMLN project.

He strongly condemned Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information, Firdous Ashiq Awan for using abusive language against the PMLN leadership.

Calling her "Baji B'dzuban", he urged her to mind her language while talking about the PMLN leaders.

He said that PTI leaders accused Ishaq Dar of controlling the dollar rate artificially. “Now you insist on liberating the dollar and it has reached to Rs150, as we [had] predicted,” he added.

“We made megaprojects, motorways, and distributed laptops among students. But there was no corruption.”

 Rana Sanaullah said that the government is doing politics on the health of Nawaz Sharif, adding that Maryam Nawaz was worried about her father’s health and wished to see him.
