PPP leaders opted for gallows but never compromised on democracy: Khursheed Shah
ISLAMABAD: “Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) is the only political party in the country whose leaders opted for gallows but never compromised on democracy and supremacy of the constitution,”said Khursheed Shah, leader of the opposition in NA while talking in ‘Sachi Baat’ with Sardar Khan Niazi at Roze News Tuesday.
“Unfortunately we could not introduce the real democracy in the country due to the dictators who ruled the country by befooling masses in the name of democracy, he said adding that PPP rendered matchless sacrifices for the nourishment of democracy.
He said being a fan of Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto; I could not afford to lie. “It is wrong to say that PPP came to rescue PM Nawaz Sharif we only supported the incumbent government to save the democratic system”, he maintained. He also admitted that the 2013 polls were rigged. Flaying role of electronic media, Syed Khursheed Shah said it does not distinguish between the truth and the lie and is busy violating code of conduct regularly. He said Benazir Bhutto could have become the PM even by staying in Dubai but she never made any compromise with the dictators.
Terming the trial of former General Pervez Musharraf as politically motivated, he said rulers are victimizing him and if they are sincere then they should start the case from October 12.
While lauding the role of Sardar Khan Niazi, MD Roze TV, Chief Editor Pakistan group of Newspapers, PPP stalwart leader said “I am well aware of your character and your’s services for the country”. He said Roze TV is the sole example in electronic media that has introduced a well drafted Code of Ethics and is completely following it in its true letter and spirit.
To a question, Syed Khursheed Shah replied PPP approached then CJP for reopening the case of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto as we wanted to know on what grounds ZAB was sent to gallows. Did he commit crime by making country an atomic power or he was punished to gift 1973 constitution to the country, he questioned. He disclosed “PPP is approaching again to SC as we want to tell the world that Zulfiqar Ai Bhutto was judicially murdered”.
He said in Benazir Bhutto murder case, some suspects were killed, but still the murder remains a mystery. He lamented that in our country when it comes to dealing high profile cases, most of the criminals either get killed or disappeared . He revealed that he had lots of secrets and he would write a book shortly.
