He said this while addressing the meeting of the Apex Committee on National Action Plan (NAP) and National Counter-Terrorism Authority (NCTA) in Islamabad.
He said that in order to improve the country’s economy, MPs should rise above personal likes and dislikes. Not only the leaders but many senior officers of the army also took part in the meeting.
The prime minister also criticized Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for not attending the apex committee meeting last month.
He said that after the Peshawar incident, he had invited all political parties, but PTI did not participate in it and now they are trying to solve the matter on the road.
