Pakistan is moving on the path of development and prosperity under the leadership of PM Imran Khan. LOH Senator Shahzad Waseem
ISLAMABAD: 19TH Aug 2020 – The Senate on Wednesday passed another two bills related to Financial Action Task Force obligations to bring Pakistan out of FATF’s grey list. These bills are “The Limited Liability Partnership (Amendment) Bill, 2020” and Companies (Amendment) Bill, 2020.”
Speaking on the occasion, Leader of the House Dr. Shahzad Waseem said under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan Pakistan is moving on the path of development and prosperity. PTI Government has presented Pakistan as a peace loving and responsible country among the comity of the nations.
Responding to criticism by Jamaat-e-Islami Senator Mushtaq Ahmad and Senator Maulana Attaur Rehman of JUI-Fazl, Leader of the House Dr Shahzad Waseem said it was an important day, as the government and opposition again proved that with sagacity, better decisions could be taken in the national interests.
“Keeping in view the threats to Pakistan, opposition parties too came up above the party lines for the sake of the state and this will yield better results,” he said and reminded the opposition parties that Pakistan was placed in the gray list before PTI government. “It was a gift from you and this was because of money laundering and terrorism,” he remarked, and in reaction some opposition senators were on their feet to agitate on it.
He asked that whose leadership was presently appearing before courts in relation to money laundering and decisions were being announced. He claimed PTI government had presented Pakistan as a peace-loving responsible state with pivotal role in key areas, like Afghan peace and CPEC while India was facing isolation. He indirectly blamed PML-N and PPP for the menace of terrorism and corruption. Senator Shahzad Waseem claimed that “we will play two innings and for the second innings, we will come with a two-third majority on the basis of our performance.”
