Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Political Communication Dr. Shahbaz Gill made some strong remarks regarding the opposition’s plans during his recent media briefing in Faisalabad.
The SAPM, on being asked whether the government is worried about the Opposition’s no-trust move, asserted that PM Imran Khan is afraid of no one. The premier’s recent power rally at Mandi Bahauddin was proof of the public’s continued support for PTI.
Dr. Shahbaz Gill hit back at claims saying that the crowd gathered at the rally were not PTI workers, but in fact, supporters.
“We had to move chairs to make place for the people,” Dr. Shahbaz Gill said. It is indeed true that the crowd gathered at Mandi-Bahauddin was a massive one. Pictures and videos went viral on social media showing scores of PTI supporters gathered for PM Khan’s address.

When asked about the new appointments in the PTI’s organizational structure, Dr. Shahbaz Gill stated that since Covid is ending and things are going back to normal, the party needs more manpower. Earlier, PTI central leadership announced the appointments of new provincial and divisional office-bearers. The move sparked claims that the government is worried about being ousted and is undergoing an overhaul. However, Dr. Shahbaz Gill brushed off the claims saying there is a need for more people.
Dr. Shahbaz Gill’s strong words for Opposition
While talking about PM Imran Khan’s leadership, Dr. Shahbaz Gill said the premier directly contacts workers for reports on ministers’ performance. He said there is no corruption in our government, unlike the previous regimes. Dr. Shahbaz Gill expressed confidence in the ministers of the PTI government saying they have a hunger to prove themselves and work hard. They did not grow up with silver spoons, Dr. Shahbaz Gill said while hitting out at the Opposition.
“Our workers are still standing with PM Imran Khan because they know he is working for the betterment of people,” Dr. Shahbaz Gill said.
While talking about Shehbaz Sharif’s corruption charges, for which the indictment set for Feb 18 was put off, SAPM Dr. Shahbaz Gill said the PML-N leader will go to jail. He said Imran Khan will not give him an NRO but only send him to jail. Shahbaz Gill said now that Covid has ended, things are getting back to normal, the government will increase its efforts against Shehbaz Sharif’s corruption.
“Khan will not give you any deals,” Dr. Shahbaz Gill said. “Our stance is the same, return the looted money, accept accountability and then later continue with your politics.” He requested the youth to gear up for an intense political battle against the Opposition.
