Aitzaz advises Sharif brothers to avoid exposure in public
LAHORE: Leader of the opposition in the Senate and senior Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan on Monday advised Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to avoid public exposure, arguing that ‘Go Nawaz Go’ slogan emerges whenever they are seen in public.
Talking to media persons outside the Lahore High Court Bar office, Aitzaz said he saw a change in the country only in “Go Nawaz Go” slogan as change could not be brought through sit-ins by the PTI and PAT.
He said PML-N has been a big business party, while the PPP represents the working class. Aitzaz said the PML-N policies are against the poor and downtrodden masses, while the PPP makes policies to protect poor countrymen. He said the PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari took a wise decision of seeking apology from the party worker over mistakes.
Replying a question, the PPP leader said he don’t want to respond to any utterance of Shaikh Rashid who remained minister in each government. Aitzaz said Imran Khan was initially saying that he will not offer even a peon’s job to Shaikh Rashid, while now he is his aide and advisor.He said that the sit-ins seem posing no threat to the government.
