PTI accuses Punjab govt of misleading nation
From Our Correspondent
ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has alleged the Government of Punjab of deceiving the nation by putting up pictures of a United States (US) power plant to refer to the recently inaugurated Sahiwal coal plant. Twitter handle of the opposition political party posted pictures of the two plants to claim that the government led by Chief Minister of Punjab, Shehbaz Sharif deceived the nation. The coal-fired plant was inaugurated by the Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif earlier this week. A unit of the plant is operational now and purportedly adding 660 Mega Watt (MW) to the national grid. Government of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and PTI have been exchanging barbs over social media blunders for quite some time now. Earlier, Naeemul Haq of PTI tweeted a picture of sacked special assistant to PM Tariq Fatemi visiting China as part of premier’s delegation and alleged the government of not implementing the professed decisions in spirit. However, it was later revealed that he had been misinformed as the picture was not of the latest China visit. PTI Chairman Imran Khan had earlier accused the federal government of abusing the Cyber Crime Law to victimise his party’s social media activists. On Twitter, Khan said that the Cyber Crime Law was being used to threaten and arrest his party’s social media activists.
