ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senator Faisal Javed on Wednesday said some of the bills were being delayed in the parliament because of undue criticism of the opposition.
“Unity was required for the matters of public issues and the opposition should not criticize the government in the matters of interests of common people in the parliament,” Faisal Javed said while talking to a local news channel.
He said some of the opposition parties who used to make hue and cry for their personal interests should refrain from the undue criticism to the government. In the same breath, he hailed the role of some of the parliamentarians who were playing positive role and showing seriousness over the issues of public interest.
The senator urged the opposition to play a constructive role in the parliament to maintain consensus politics with the government for the bright future of the country.
Faisal Javed hailed the political parties’ role in the parliament for Army chief’s extension bill, saying that the support of all political parties was a positive step and the unity among parties had portrayed a soft image of the country to the world that all institutions including the opposition were on the same page.
He expressed that the issue was related to national interest and legislation on it was made with the consensus of all the political parties in the Parliament and hoped that the same spirit and unity of all political parties would continue in future for the welfare of the state and to provide relief to the common people.
The senator said last year the government was targeted because of economy and the PTI government under the leadership of Imran Khan had achieved the target goals of economic stability in the country successfully.
He said in 2020, Imran Khan’s government was targeted on common man’s relief, so In sha Allah! under the visionary and sincere leadership we would provide relief to the poor segment of society with launching different social welfare programmes including 180 shelter homes, Sehat Insaf Cards, Ration Cards, Ahsas poverty program, utility stores subsidies and with launching different digital apps for the welfare of the people.
