The minister went on to say that two major political parties [PPP and PML-N] are responsible for the people’s present plight, adding that the opposition has little sympathy or concern with the poor. He said it’s mysterious how people like PML-N’s Nawaz, Shehbaz, Maryam, and Shahid Khaqan mock us, adding that they’ve become addicted to the corruption lure.

He stated that the steadfastness of Prime Minister Imran Khan restored the country and nation’s global identity. He said the opposition lacks sympathy for the country’s weak section.
