PTI govt betrayed Pakistanis, Kashmiris by supporting India: Shehbaz
The Niazi (Imran Khan) government betrayed the people of Pakistan and Kashmir by supporting India in getting elected as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, said PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif.
In a tweet posted on Friday, he said not attempting to get an alternate candidate for the slot was tantamount to surrender on the diplomatic front.
نیازی حکومت نے بھارت کے اقوام متحدہ کی سلامتی کونسل کا غیرمستقل رکن منتخب ہونے کی حمایت کرکے پاکستان اور کشمیرکے عوام کے ارمانوں کا خون کیا۔ بھارت کے مقابلے میں متبادل نامزدگی کی کوششیں نہ ہونا سفارتی محاذ پر ہتھیار ڈالنے کے مترادف ہے۔— Shehbaz Sharif (@CMShehbaz) June 19, 2020
Shehbaz also criticised the government over the shortage of medicines and equipment required to fight the coronavirus.
The medicines and equipment were either not available or priced too high in case of availability, he said, adding that the paralysed administration caused mental torture to the people.
کورونا وباءکے علاج کے لئے درکار ضروری ادویات اور طبی سامان بازار سے غائب ہوگیا ہے یا پھر سونے کے بھاو فروخت ہورہا ہے۔ انتظامیہ کے مفلوج ہونے سے عوام اذیت کا شکار ہیں۔ کوئی نہیں جو ادویات کی نایابی اور مہنگے داموں فروخت کو روکے۔— Shehbaz Sharif (@CMShehbaz) June 19, 2020
There was no one to address the trend of medicines’ shortage and stop overpricing, Shehbaz regretted.
Earlier in a tweet, the PML-N president blasted Prime Minister Imran Khan for his lack of knowledge about the constitutional matters and the working of a Federation.
So unfortunate that someone who does not have even a basic understanding of how resource distribution takes place between the federal government & the provinces is the Chief Executive of the country. The working of Pakistan's federalism is Greek to him. pic.twitter.com/rns6eczrSV— Shehbaz Sharif (@CMShehbaz) June 18, 2020
It is an unfortunate thing that someone who does not have even a basic understanding of how resource distribution takes place between the federal government and the provinces is the country’s chief executive, he said. “The working of Pakistan's federalism is Greek to him.”
He was referring to a statement in which the prime minister questioned the National Finance Commission (NFC) Award mechanism, saying what kind of system that was in which the Centre paid money to the provinces.
These remarks are quite strange given the fact that the Centre or the federal government is required to transfer amount to every federating unit in any Federation.
