Pakistan's destination to progress is only possible through parliament: Information Minister

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Pervaiz Rashid has said that Pakistan's destination to progress is only possible through parliament. In an interview today, he said that Pakistan came into being due to democratic and constitutional struggle.  Even today real change is possible via politics of parliament and democracy. The Information Minister said that Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah used democratic and legal ways for the right of Indian Muslims. We can achieve goals of Pakistan's establishment by following principles of Pakistan's founder. PTI Chief Imran Khan is trying to divide the nation on the national day, which stands for national unity. In a statement, he said Imran Khan gives the enemy an opportunity to mock at by staging protest on the Independence Day every year. It is a fact that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's name is not among those who possess offshore companies, whereas Imran Khan and his cronies possess offshore companies. Imran Khan is doing the politics of baseless allegations, which will serve neither him nor the country.
