100 days not enough to tell if govt headed in right direction: Aitzaz Ahsan

LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Senator Aitzaz Ahsan said the incumbent government should be allowed time to prove itself.

Speaking to reporters outside the Lahore High Court Bar, Ahsan said that hundred days were not enough to conclude if the government was headed in the right direction or not.

“Hundred days are given [to judge] a presidential system, not a parliamentary system. PTI should itself not use [this criteria] to judge its performance,” the PPP leader said in response to a journalist’s question.

“They don’t even have majority in the Senate,” he pointed out, adding that conflicts among ministers was no big deal.

Ahsan was referring to earlier claims by Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed that Prime Minister Imran Khan had offered him Ministry of Information. Rasheed was also quoted as saying that Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry was “on a picnic in London for the last eight days.”

The railways minister later clarified that his comments regarding the information minister being on a picnic in London were said in jest.
