KARACHI: Opposition Leader Khursheed Shah on Friday said that “Mian sahib understands puppet show very well, but the premier at times pretends to be innocent to make a fool out of others”.
Speaking to media here, Shah said he wishes for the representative assemblies in the country to complete their term.
“We have seen elected prime ministers being taken to gallows and appearing before the courts twice,” he said, referring to Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, who was executed in Gen Zia regime, and Yousuf Raza Gilani and Raja Pervez Ashraf, who were summoned by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in the former PPP regime.
“Had I been in place of Nawaz Sharif, I would not have appeared before the joint investigation team as a prime minister,” the opposition leader said.
About the probe panel’s possible questioning with the premier, Shah said the investigators might have asked him about his statements inside and outside the assembly.
The opposition leader said the premier didn’t appear to be speaking truth the way he read out a written speech. “If you haven’t done anything, then why did you give explanations in the National Assembly?”
