Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Raja Riaz Ahmed has flayed Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif for backing rioters on the pretext of loadshedding protests, adding that they would not succeed in maligning the PPP leadership. Talking to the media at the Punjab Assembly, he said that Shahbaz Sharif had failed to run the province’s affairs.
 “To divert people’s attention from his government’s failures, he is harassing and terrorising opposition leaders,” Riaz added.
