SUKKUR: Opposition leader in the National Assembly, Syed Khursheed Shah, on Thursday said Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan was suffering from "Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) phobia," adding that the minister with his controversial statements was creating problems for his own government and party.

Earlier in the day, in a heated press conference against critics of the National Action Plan (NAP), Nisar had hit out at the PPP, saying:

"Pakistan Tehreeki-i-Insaf has been levelling allegations of 'muk-muka' (collusion) between the PML-N and the PPP. I can confirm it (muk-muka)."

Nisar went on to say, " how the opposition leader used his position to get benefits from the government is a separate story altogether."

In an apparent reply to Nisar's statement, Shah said such an assertion (of collusion between the PPP and the PML-N) was a direct attack on premier Nawaz Sharif.

Shah said he had warned the prime minister about back stabbers in his own party.

"My party did not save anyone's government, it was democracy we saved. I will reply to this accusation in parliament in front of the prime minister," said the PPP stalwart, referring to the PPP's support of the PML-N during the Imran Khan-led protest to oust premier Nawaz Sharif.

The PPP leader criticised the federal interior minister over what he said was a "delay in condemning the Charsadda University attack."

Shah said he had only demanded a judicial inquiry into the APS attack and the Charsadda University attack, which he said was also a demand of the deceased children's parents.

Shah said it seemed "no intellectual or politician knows about the National Action Plan (NAP) except Nisar himself."

Earlier, during a press conference in Karachi, Sindh's acting information minister and PPP leader, Maula Bux Chandio also criticised Nisar and the PML-N government.

Chandio alleged it was the PML-N which supported "terrorist parties and their candidates" during elections and "held photo sessions with extremists."

"They are indebted to the Taliban.

"Nisar is infuriated over opposition's criticism of Lal Masjid cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz. He must come clear on why he has sympathies for the cleric," said Chandio.

The PPP leader also reminded the PML-N of his party's services to democracy including the first ever peaceful transfer of power.

Equipped with statistics on the past year's terror incidents across the country, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan hit out at critics of the NAP on Thursday, saying those criticising the policy "had never read NAP".

Following the recent attack on the Bacha Khan University in Charsadda, which claimed 21 lives, Khursheed Shah had pointed fingers at NAP and held the interior minister responsible.

Shah had accused the federal government of making no significant progress on the NAP and said only 60 out of 3,000 major terrorism cases had been sent to military courts.
