PTI should not instigate workers to violence: govt

31 December, 2013

ISLAMABAD: Information and Broadcasting Minister Pervaiz Rashid said on Monday the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) must not instigate its workers to violence as use of force in politics could give birth to anarchy.

Talking to the media, he said that the government was ready to hand over the control of Peshawar Electric Supply Company (PESCO) to PTI Chairman Imran Khan to make possible the recovery of electricity bills from the defaulters.

To a question, he said the "court of history has already given its verdict regarding former president Pervez Musharraf and now his case is in the court of law".

The government has provided ample opportunity to the former president to give his side of the story in the court of law. "And his statements outside the court have no relevance as we have already seen him airing statements while hovering pistols and fists", he added.

To another question, he said the standard of living of people could not be improved via satellite while sitting in the cosy atmosphere of Canada.

"The standard of living of people has registered significant improvement during the tenure of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz," the minister added.

He cited the examples of motorway, Metro Bus Service, Green Channel facility at airports and laptop scheme "which helped improving the standard of living of the people of the country".

He said the government has relaxed various conditions of prime minister's business loan scheme.
