Action must be taken against Nazeer Chohan for using third rated tactics against Shahzad Akbar

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Saturday said using religion card against anyone for personal vendetta was highly ‘despicable’.

In a tweet, he said, the Lahore Police must take action against Member Provincial Assembly Nazeer Chohan for using the third rated tactics against Advisor to Prime Minister on Accountability and Interior Shahzad Akbar.

The minister said Shahzad Akbar was doing his job, and the state could not function if it failed to safeguard officials against such attacks.

Earlier, the federal minister took to Twitter and said Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif should unite his party before getting the opposition on same page.

He said the opposition is in trouble at the moment and if it comes out of it, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazal (JUI-F) Chief Fazal-ur-Rehman is here to spread anarchy.

Fawad Ch went on to say that if the opposition is serious over electoral reforms then parliamentary leaders should hold talks instead of using the dubious platform of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).
