LAHORE: Minister for planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal says there is no justification for PTI protest over Panama papers as the Supreme Court has already taken up the matter.
He was talking to newsmen after distributing laptops among students of Government College University in Lahore in Saturday. He said Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif respects constitution, law and the institutions.
The Minister said PTI should come to the parliament to record any protest on any matter if it believes in democracy. Ahsan Iqbal said PTI’s plan to lock down Islamabad would only damage its democratic credentials.
Earlier, addressing the ceremony the Minister said government is distributing laptops among the brilliant and deserving students purely on merit.
He said this is the era of IT and we will have to encourage our youth to excel in this sector.
