KARACHI: (Web Desk) PPP Senator Sherry Rehman on Tuesday lambasted the “incompetent” PTI-led government for “failing miserably everywhere”, including at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
“Whether it is the FATF or the IMF, this incompetent government is failing everywhere,” Rehman said. “Pakistan is still on the grey list. Over what are they [the government] tooting their own horns?”
The PPP leader said people wished for the country to be removed from the notorious grey list, formally known as the “increased monitoring list” and on which Pakistan was to remain as announced by FATF President Dr Marcus Pleyer last week.
“This is a divisive government, an incompetent government, an unaware government. This ‘notice’ government just keeps taking notice but nothing happens after that.”
Lashing out at the government, she reminded it of the PTI’s rallies, saying: “You yourself have held a sit-in in the federal capital and today you are telling the Opposition they cannot hold a rally?
“We had thought we would let the government complete its tenure but it looks like it will end soon.
“You were supposed to protest over the Kashmir issue every Friday; whatever happened to that? You did not even convene a meeting on the Kashmir issue.
“In our time, the Parliament made decisions. In our time, even the NATO’s cargo was stopped because the Parliament was in session.
“It was expected that a special session of Parliament would be held today after India’s aggressive move but that did not happen. The Kashmiri [people] are the only victims of Indian state terrorism. “A strong message should have come from Pakistan,” the senator said.
