Fawad slams PPP for targeting PTI’s social media team
ISLAMABAD: Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Tuesday praised the social media team of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and condemned the opposition Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) for targeting the team members.
The minister wrote on microblogging website Twitter that he had suggested in the past to regulate the social media but the same people opposed his proposal.
“PTI’s social media team has played a great role in every crisis from Pulwama to #Covid. PPP’s campaign against these youths is reprehensible. Interestingly, when I said that social media has to be regulated and PMRA brought in. This whole group was against this legislation at that time,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, Chaudhry said in an interview that the opposition parties did not have any welfare agenda, adding that they were spreading anarchy and hatching conspiracies to divide the nation. “Our country needs unity among all of us as undemocratic conduct was only damaging the country,” he said.
He made it clear that Prime Minister Imran Khan would not back down from holding the opposition leaders accountable for their alleged corrupt practices. He added that the prime minister had already stated categorically that the accountability of the corrupt would not be stopped in the country.
“The opposition has only been demanding an NRO [National Reconciliation Ordinance]-like deal which will not be given at any cost,” he added. He asked the opposition not to do politics over the health of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
