ISLAMABAD- Leader of the opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah demanded immediate release of all prisoners from the Taliban.
Talking to journalists at the Parliament House today, Khursheed Shah said they completely support the government in any step they would take. Nawaz Sharif should not worry about his chair, it is under no threat, he added. He said we did not enjoy full mandate as the PML-N government does. He said PM’s first part of the statement on dialogue gives the impression of an operation while the second part is about dialogue. The negotiating team has no capability, he added.
Khursheed Shah said that Imran Khan’s statement depicted his political immaturity. He said it is the time to make decisions in the national interest of the state. The government should take all political leaders on board and tell the facts, he emphasized. He said Taliban have sabotaged everything and they should release all prisoners to show their sincerity and seriousness in talks.
