Islamabad, Oct. 04 (Online): Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz on Sunday stated that PML-N Nawaz has done nothing for the country, except pursuing anti-people policies.
PML_N leadership is misleading the common people by pursing a narrative, which has nothing to do with reality.

The Minister said PML-N government wasted 23 billion dollars to artificially control dollar’s value.
