Federal Interior Minister Shiekh Rashid has admitted that the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf government has failed to deliver.

People elected Imran Khan into power to hold the corrupt accountable but due to some ‘weaknesses’ the ruling PTI could not fulfill his pre-election promise, the minister told BBC Urdu.

He said PM Imran has been standing firm against corruption and he sacked many members from his party and the government’s positions on corruption allegations.

Shehzad Akbar’s failure to bring back former premier Nawaz Sharif from London was not only the reason for his departure from the federal cabinet, he said, adding that he could not recover looted public money. 

Shehbaz Sharif, the brother of Nawaz Sharif has been facing a Rs16 billion money laundering case but the government failed to retrived it.

The government, he also said, is making efforts to sign extradition treaties with other countries, especially the UK to bring back those wanted by courts and other criminals.

The federal minister added that the government is also making efforts for the extradition of Nawaz Sharif while admitting granting him rare permission to fly abroad in 2019 was the government’s fault.

“We sent him and it is our fault, " the minister said, adding that they managed the escape,” he remarked.
