Saad calls for not making DG ISPR press conference controversial

LAHORE:Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique on Monday said that DG Inter-Services Public Relations’ press conference was balanced and it should not be made controversial.

He was talking to the media after issuing Pakistan Railways’ four years performance at the Railways Headquarters on Monday. He said that there is no dispute between Pakistan Army and the government and Pakistan would move forward with collaboration among all its institutions.

To a question about derailment of the system, he said that it might be a wish of some people, but Pakistan would proceed towards the 2018 elections with the same arrangement.

He said that politics of disliking, allegations and sit-ins had disturbed the country a lot, and it should come to an end now, as the state needs serious and sincere politics for progress.

He said that no department could be developed without elimination of political interference and if anybody wanted to see its effects, he should visit railways where every recruitment is being made purely on merit.
