Lahore: Defense Minister Khawaja Asif along with his family members, has left for Dubai here on Saturday evening amid the country in political tensions.
The sources claimed the defense minister reached the airport in a hurry and was boarded on the flight of Pakistan International Airlines PK211.
Defense Minister Khwaja Asif told a media house on telephone that he has gone to Dubai to attend a wedding ceremony and would return to Pakistan on Sunday morning.
But his opponents are claiming that he has escaped the country because political tensions are on the rise in the country and ‘anything big’ can be predicted in this situation, therefore he has left the country.
Moreover, earlier, Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid has been suspended from his post. The removal of information minister came in the wake of civil-military leadership leaked conversation that appeared in local newspaper Dawn.
