ISLAMABAD   -   Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday strongly condemned the alleged attempts by the ruling coalition in the centre to politicise the national atomic programme, saying that it is a national asset acquired by the nation through hard work and tying a stone on its belly.

He went on to say that Pakistan’s nuclear programme was a great national asset, which was acquired by the nation by cutting its belly and tying a stone on it.

Highly praising the scientists for making Pakistan a nuclear power, the PTI spokesperson made it clear that the programme was materialised owing to the competent, hardworking and intelligent patriotic scientists under the unwavering leadership of Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan. He demanded that the nation should pay tribute to these true benefactors.

He claimed that PTI Founding Chairman Imran Khan and his party were the guardians of national interests and would fight against the corrupt and oppressive regime until the end.
