PML-N President and Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif on Thursday commented on the TLP-police fiasco on GT Road that killed six cops, saying the federal ministers were giving contradictory statements on the prevailing situation, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.  

Shehbaz Sharif said that one of the federal ministers said that Prime Minister was unaware of the 2020 agreement with the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP). 

The PML-N President said that there was sheer chaos and lack of leadership and the government machinery is totally clueless

He commented, “This is Imran Khan’s way of governing Pakistan.”

Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari responding to the PML-N President said, “You really are a confused soul --- the gentleman you are citing is not a federal minister.”

She defended the government’s deal of handling the banned outfit TLP’s march towards Islamabad, and said, “There is absolutely no confusion in the government led by the PM as the cabinet decision yesterday made abundantly clear the position on TLP. Seems massive confusion persists in your information.”

In another tweet, the human rights minister said that the state has laws against terrorism and militancy and killing of policemen and other LEAs, and any act of terrorism by TLP or any group will be dealt with full force of the law.

Shireen warned that restraint by the govt so far should not be mistaken as weakness and there should not be any ambiguity on that count. 

Shehbaz Sharif in another tweet regarding the state of the economy said, “Imagine the state of a government whose Prime Minister says that he heard the news of depreciation in the value of rupee on TV.”
