Firdous wants treason cases against looters of national wealth

Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Thursday said that those who looted the national exchequer and robbed the masses of their rights should be tried under Article 6, related to high treason.

Talking to the media, she remarked that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had “pushed the country into the swamp of debts by mercilessly looting the national kitty and the poor public”.

To a question, she said Prime Minister Imran Khan was determined to build Pakistan on the principles of the state of Madina. She said Imran Khan did not inherit a political party, and his political struggle “spans over 22 years”. She said the PPP could not digest his popularity.

Taking a jibe at Imran Khan, Bilawal had mocked him, saying, “Our Prime Minister thinks that Germany & Japan share a border. How embarrassing, this is what happens when you [University of Oxford] let people in just because they can play cricket.”
