MULTAN - Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was a caravan without any destination, as earlier it was talking about resigning from Assemblies, then holding long march and now no-confidence motion.

While talking to people at Union Councils 20, 37,39 and 43 of his constituency NA-156, the Foreign Minister remarked that PDM coalition was based on personal interests so it was bound to fail. The leadership of PML-N could not mislead the masses as they had been exposed before the people, he said.

Qureshi maintained that PML-N could not dislodge the incumbent government. The opposition would face disappointment, Qureshi said, adding, the PTI government would complete its Constitutional term. He reiterated the incumbent government would not give any NRO and the looters would have to face strict accountability.

The foreign minister also observed that Pakistan was facing different challenges at international level. He, however, added that the country would achieve successes at all diplomatic fronts. In past regime, no foreign minister was deputed in the country which caused weakening Pakistan on diplomatic fronts, he said. ‘The incumbent government was fighting Pakistan’s case effectively at every international forum. After a long time, the country’s foreign policy was evolved as per wishes of masses”, he said and added Pakistan was now heading in right direction.
