Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal attacks on country's institutions cannot be termed political protest.
Talking to the media in Lahore on Monday, he said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leadership faced jails even in tough situations, but never raised hue and cry.
Ahsan Iqbal said no patriotic person can support negative propaganda being promoted by the PTI overseas social media against country's defence institutions.
He said has said that elections in the country will be held on time.
Ahsan Iqbal said if any political worker would play role within the parameters of politics and democracy, then he would be considered as part of democracy.
To a question, he said Pakistan has met all conditions of International Monetary Fund and soon matters would be finalised which would definitely end uncertainty in the market.
