SUKKUR  - Opposition Leader in National Assembly Khursheed Shah on Saturday rejected the demand for midterm elections in the country, stating that Pakistan People’s Party wanted continuation of democracy.

Talking to media persons here, the opposition leader said it was the right of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan to hold protest against the government because in a democratic system everyone had the right of protest.

Shah said Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan should retract his word tamasha that he had uttered during the assembly session. Nisar had performed the same action in the assembly many times in the past, he added.

The opposition leader said the Kishanganga dam was very important for Pakistan because it had become a matter of life and death for the people of Pakistan.

Shah said PPP was opposed to midterm polls in the country and it wanted continuation of the government to strengthen the democratic system.
