ISLAMABAD: Reacting to PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s scheduled Iftar dinner this Sunday, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister Firdous Ashiq Awan on Saturday accused opposition politicians of conspiring against the incumbent government in “the name of Iftar”.
In a series of tweets, she lamented the politicians who caused problems for the people are busy protecting personal, political and business interests under the garb of Iftar dinners.
Ms Awan said, “They [members of opposition parties] are only worried about their wealth and the future of their progeny.”
“Hatching a conspiracy against the elected government in the name of Iftar in the holy month of Ramazan is unfortunate,” she added.
اپوزیشن کو اپنی نیت کی مار پڑ رہی ہے۔ یہ صرف اپنی دولت اور اولاد کے مستقبل کے بارے میں فکرمند رہتے ہیں۔ رمضان المبارک کے مقدس مہینے میں افطار کے نام پر منتخب جمہوری حکومت کے خلاف سازش کرنا افسوسناک ہے۔
