Government lacks capability and policy, says Khursheed Shah

ISLAMABAD: Senior Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Syed Khursheed Shah has said the government lacks capability, policy and attitude but he is not in favour of mid-term elections.

Speaking to media Shah said the new government should be allowed to work and there is no need for any in-house change. However, he added that the opposition will protest in the National Assembly against the recent price hike and that they will see if there is a need for military courts in the country.

“Nawaz Sharif’s downfall was caused by forgetting the way to the Parliament and choosing an alternative way,” the PPP leader said. “It is true what Imran Khan says about the Parliament being fake because we all know how he got seats in the House.”

Criticising the prime minister, Shah said it has been five months but Imran Khan has failed to show up in the Parliament. 

“Imran Khan will have to issue a clarification on [his sister] Aleema Khan’s properties,” he said, adding that the government was only interested in borrowing money. 

Shah added that by not removing Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah’s names from the Exit Control List, the government has challenged the Supreme Court.

Responding to a question about a possible Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and PPP alliance, the former leader of the opposition in National Assembly clarified that Asif Ali Zardari visited Nawaz Sharif only to offer his condolences at the demise of the PML-N quaid’s wife.
