Government of PakistanSaad Rafique terms Panama Papers, an international conspiracy

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique on Saturday said that the Panama Papers issue was nothing but an international conspiracy to hamper the development process in the country.

Talking to the media in Islamabad, the minister raised specific reservations on the report, recently submitted by Joint Investigation Team (JIT).

Currently, the party’s legal team was examining the report and would present its stance before the court, he added.

He said it seemed that an international conspiracy was being hatched to derail Pakistan’s economic development process as some elements did not want to see the country as a prosperous and powerful one.

He said the politics of allegations was not serving national interests in any manner.

“Let us do politics on the basis of performance, instead on the basis of just allegations”, he said.

“We are engaged in pulling each others’ legs which is serving the interests of enemies of Pakistan,” he added.

He said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was determined to taking the country’s economic strength to new heights, however, Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan was creating hurdles in his way.
