Clash with institutions against country’s sovereignty, says Khursheed
SUKKUR: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah claimed on Sunday it is only Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) that wants politics to stay in the country.
Addressing a public meeting here, he said leveling baseless allegations and making speeches was not politics.
Shah said he had repeatedly tried to persuade politicians to shun politics of accusations, but to no avail. He added he asked former prime minister Nawaz Sharif over and over again to sit together to resolve issues and reminded him that it was the parliament that had elected him.
He said any clash with institutions was against the sovereignty of the country.
Slamming PTI chief Imran Khan for offering apology to the Election Commission of Pakistan for accusing it of bias, he said he first criticized institutions and then tendered apology. Khan offered apology because he realized that he was in the wrong, Shah added.
No one has right to send an elected government packing, he further said.
Shah said Pakistan is entangled in problems and it is our duty to resolve all the issues the country is facing.
Pakistan can only progress in a democratic setup, he stressed and added he played a role to strengthen parliament and democracy.
