Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan had accused Chaudhry Aitzaz Ahsan of being a member of a land mafia group in a statement on Thursday.
Syed Khursheed Shah, addressing the joint session of Parliament in Islamabad on Friday (today), said the Interior Minister has backstabbed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
He claimed that some Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) ministers are “waiting for their turns”.
He also said that the government and opposition have foiled the conspiracy to derail democracy in the country.
The opposition leader added that a senior minister of Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) has put the opposition in such a situation that there is fire on one side and water on the other.
He further said that the behavior of the Interior Minister was inappropriate in the assembly. He demanded Chaudhry Nisar to apologize to Senator Aitzaz Ahsan in front of the house for his remarks towards him.
Khursheed Shah added that the Parliament has become a wall for defending democracy in the country. He added that the ongoing political situation has brought the government and opposition close to each other.
“We are so close that no one can put a needle through us”, Shah said.
“We learnt understanding and reconciliation from the past”, he added.
He added that the resignation of Prime Minister will not be equal to weakness of Nawaz Sharif but it will be the weakness of democracy.
