Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Wednesday that the achievements Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) accomplished in the last five years were not even done in past 65 years.
He was speaking as chief guest at the awards distribution ceremony of All Pakistan Newspapers Society (APNS) in Islamabad.
The premier expressed hope to conduct free and fair elections in the country. “Democracy cannot afford whatever happened in Balochistan and Senate,” he added.
He maintained that the government of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has lived up to its commitment not to interfere in freedom of expression or working of media.
The Prime Minister asserted that PML-N made a firm pledge not to resort to coercion or pressure tactics against media and it pursued the policy religiously during the last five years.
He maintained that in the past IB secret funds billions of rupees were spent annually but the present government has not spent even a rupee from the secret fund for any purpose.
