ISLAMABAD:– Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Tuesday has said that the government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to move high court against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif.

Addressing a press conference, the minister said that PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif was allowed to travel abroad on the guarantee of Shehbaz Sharif. Nawaz Sharif’s illness was only a fraud as he didn’t undergo any medical treatment in London, he added.

Fawad Chaudhry said that Sharif family is making joke of national law while sitting abroad. Pakistani embassy contacted twice with Sharif family for medical reports of former prime minister but they refused to submit them, he went on to say.

He demanded Shehbaz Sharif to bring back his brother as per commitment or else he can be disqualified over submitting false affidavit.

The minister said the cabinet was also briefed about Covid situation in the country. He said it has been decided that no lockdown will be imposed in the country as Pakistan’s economy cannot afford this.

He, however, appealed the people to observe precautionary measures, especially wearing of face masks at public places, to prevent spread of the virus. He said the government will keep monitoring the situation.

Regarding Electronic Voting Machines, he said the Ministry of Science and Technology has been directed to provide EVMs to the Election Commission of Pakistan to hold next elections in Islamabad through these machines to ensure transparency.

Fawad Chaudhry said the cabinet also approved launching of a Housing Project on 400 kanals for overseas Pakistanis. He said overseas Pakistanis can procure apartments in this project through Roshan Digital Accounts.

He said the government will fetch around two billion dollars through this project. He said the cabinet also directed to frame a policy to enable foreigners to procure land in Pakistan.

The minister said the Federal Cabinet approved electricity tariff adjustment of one rupee per unit for next three months to provide relief to the people. Besides, Science, Technology, and Innovation policy, Sambarial-Kharian Motorway, import of urea from China, and privatization of Guddu and Nandipur power plants were approved.
