Unfinished agenda of Nawaz Sharif to be fulfilled: Maryam Aurangzeb


ISLAMABAD, Aug. 4 (TNS): Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Maryam Aurangzeb on Friday said that the government will fulfill the unfinished agenda of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Talking to state-run media after taking oath at President House in Islamabad, she said, “The way the former Prime Minister served the people in his three tenures has no precedence in our history. This is the reason that Nawaz Sharif lives in hearts of the people.”

The Minister said, “Nawaz Sharif always upheld rule of law.” She urged the opposition to play their role to strengthen the federation.

She said, “The opposition parties have governments in the provinces and they should also contribute to development of the country. Those using social media must exercise their freedom of expression with utmost responsibility and avoid mudslinging and personal attacks.”

Responding to a question about former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Ayesha Gulalai, she regretted that, “Politics is being done on the issue which must be avoided. She said Islam gives great respect to women.” She said, “The allegations hurled by Ayesha Gulalai should be investigated. She said the women parliamentary caucus will also play its role on the matter.”

She said that she will continue to work for the welfare and training of the journalists.
