ISLAMABAD, (Pakistan Point News - 03rd Nov, 2016 ) : Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Thursday said the Panama Papers case had ultimately come to the courts that offer was made by the government soon after its revelation. The government was determined to hold investigations on the Panama issue as the prime minister had presented himself for accountability in his speech in the Parliament and address to the nation as well, he said talking to a tv channel.
Shahid Khaqan said being a political party, the PML-N had confidence in the judiciary and believed that the Supreme Court would give decision on the basis of facts and "we will accept it." He said Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf had failed to serve the masses of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa while its chief was doing negative politics by levelling allegations on national political leadership. The minister said instead of criticizing others, the PTI should focus to deliver the people of KP where it was in power.
He said the people were best judge and they would decide on the performance of the political parties and the governments in general election in 2018. The PML-N government had launched several development projects in three years that had not been initiated by the past governments during last 15 years, he said. He said the people would again give their decision in favour of PML-N on the basis of its performance. To a question, he said, as the demand for gas in Punjab province for domestic consumers during winter was 40 percent more than its due share, the government had to bridge the gap using different ways.
He said the government had added more gas to the system that was why uninterrupted gas was being supplied to the industrial sector as compared to previous government ,which was giving gas for only two days in a week. The minister said, with the efforts of the government, gas supply to all sectors had been increased and it would further ensure to provide maximum gas to the domestic consumers in the winter.
