SUKKUR: Senior Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Syed Khursheed Shah on Sunday said the Parliament will not function if Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif’s production order is cancelled.
Speaking to the media in Sukkur, Shah said, “It is our collective responsibility to take decisions which will bring improvement. If the government wants accountability, it should also hold its ministers accountable.”
“Parliament cannot function without an opposition leader,” he asserted.
When asked what the opposition will do if Shehbaz’s production order is cancelled, the seasoned politician said, “Ministers will not be able to come to the Parliament. We will also not come and Parliament won't function.”
Responding to a question regarding running the Parliament without an opposition leader, Shah said the cancellation of the production order would mean the government does not want to run the House.
The PPP leader further said the government seems happy with the money it has borrowed from other countries. “No house or factory runs on loans. Pakistan only received money as a deposit and we cannot even touch the money.”
