21 October, 2013
SUKKUR: Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly, Syed Khurshid Shah, has said his party wished that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government complete its constitutional tenure but the steps taken by the incumbent government were not in favour of the country and its people.
Talking to media persons on Sunday, Shah said despite inauspicious decisions made by the government, the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) will not create disturbance in law and order situation through violent protests and politics of rampage.
He said the PPP wanted peace in the country and resolution of problems faced by the people. He said the party was ready to extend all support in this regard.
The opposition leader said some elements wanted to revive the politics of past decades but the PPP was showing great patience in the larger interest of country.
Shah said his party had offered a lot of sacrifices for democracy, therefore it will oppose any conspiracy to derail it.
"Had the PPP taken to the streets along with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) against alleged rigging in elections, then what would have happened," he asked.
The opposition leader expressed hope that Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif's visit to US will be fruitful. He said Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had now entered in active politics and will lead the party to take it to new heights of popularity among the masses.
