Nawaz Sharif Thatta, May 11 (ANI): Pakistan’s Commerce Minister Amin Fahim has said there is no truth to rumours that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP)-led government will not complete its tenure because the US favours PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif.

Speaking to reporters at the Dastarbandi ceremony of Sardar Ameer Otho, who was declared the chieftain of Otho tribe after the death of his father, he said the PPP always trusted people who voted it into power.

Fahim said the PPP did not require any other support for coming to power, and added the party is acting in the right direction under the leadership of President Asif Ali Zardari to meet the challenges facing the country.

The PPP would continue its endeavours to deliver good governance to the masses, he added.

Fahim said the government had entered into a peace deal with Tehreek-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM) chief Sufi Muhammad for peace in Swat, but the Taliban had violated the accord.

The government launched the military offensive to restore the writ of government in Swat and eliminate terrorists and extremists, he added.

The Daily Times quoted Fahim as saying that the government is determined to improve law and order throughout the country. (ANI)
