ISLAMABAD: Opposition leader in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah on Saturday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan does not need to apologize as making demands for Judicial commission was his right.
Talking to media persons here the opposition leader said that commission’s conclusion was obvious to him all through the process. Had Khan presented Pakistan People’s Party’s (PPP) stance before inquiry commission, the result would have been different as the PPP advised Imran Khan to include in his demands to open bags of votes, he added.
He said that making demands over his reservations over the fairness of general elections was Khan’s right.
While talking about the flood affectees, he said that PPP stands with the flood-affected families. He said that he had to visit Chitral but could not because of bad weather. As soon as weather turns normal, he would pay a visit to affected families, he added.
Shah said that PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari would also pay a visit to affectees, adding that that Sindh government has announced Rs 50 million aid for flood-hit Chitral and and cheques among affectees would be distributed.
While commenting on former chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry’s decision to form a new political party, he said that PPP welcomes new faces in politics. He said former president Pervez Musharraf should also be made a part of political scenario, he added.
To a question about Rangers raiding Sindh Building Control Authority (SBCA) office in Civic Center, he said that all institutions should work within their limits and do not interfere in each other’s domain.
He categorically said that the Sindh government had called Rangers to eliminate terrorism from the city but if one instituition raids at building of another and seizes records then there is nothing except destruction.
