PR No. 132 Islamabad: December 15, 2017

Minister of state for Information, Broadcasting, National History and Literary Heritage Ms. Marriyum Aurangzeb has said that she had talked about funding by the foreigners to PTI in her media talk, the illegitimate and illegal money that Imran received from them and did not declare.

            In her statement the minister said that the minorities in Pakistan were equal citizens as per the constitution and she knew well how to defend their honour, prestige and rights. She said that PTI could not get rid of the issue of foreign funding by taking cover behind the citizens of Pakistan belonging to the minorities.

          She reiterated that she had talked in the context of foreign funding to the PTI while interacting with the media. However if it all of you feel that I should have made a different choice of words, I do respect your opinion and thank you for pointing it out, she said. If it has hurt the feelings of somebody, I do apologise for that, Marriyum concluded.
