Khursheed Shah fires broadside at PM over criticism of Bilawal


SUKKUR: A day after Prime Minister Imran Khan slammed Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, PPP leader and former opposition leader in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah on Saturday fired a broadside at the premier, saying he lacked the capability to fulfill the promises he has made to the people.

“Neither does Imran Khan have a future plan nor the capability to fulfill promises,” he said while speaking to reporters.

Shah said it was evident to the entire nation that PM Khan was making the statements he used to make atop a container, adding that unfortunately, he hadn’t yet learnt to do national politics.

He said Bilawal’s speech in the recent session was based on a future strategy which the prime minister failed to understand.

The PPP leader said his party had always talked about creating consensus among political parties. One of the reasons behind India’s defeat of late was a lack of convergence of opinion among Indian political leadership, he said.

Commenting on Indo-Pak tensions, he said there are two ideologies working in India, the one [Modi] beats the war drums while the other wants peace.

Yesterday, the prime minister addressed a public meeting at Chachro town of Sindh’s Tharparkar district.
