LAHORE: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah said on Wednesday that as long as parliament and democracy were present in country, no one could remove Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
He said that the nation was showering praise on the Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif and the people need not worry about anything.
Addressing a function in Lahore, Khursheed Shah was responding to the prime minister’s concerns that some people were trying to de-seat him.
Khursheed Shah said that although the PM’s fear was quite possible, it could not happen with the co-existence of parliament and democracy. He went on to say that to curb the menace of corruption, action taken should be indiscriminate. Trying to address the issue of the roots of terrorism, he said that investigations should be carried out to identify when and where terrorism and corruption originated, adding why the Operation Zarb-e-Azb and other operations were needed.
Khursheed Shah further said if the nation appreciated the actions of the country’s armed forces, the politicians should be pleased with it.
