SUKKUR - Reacting to the press conference of Ch Nisar, Opposition leader in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah on Thursday said he never resorted to any point scoring that he is being accused of by the govt.

Talking to journalists, Shah said he did not do any point-scoring and only said what was right. “It appears as if it has become the government’s habit to level baseless allegations against others,” he added.

Without naming Nisar, he challenged him to prove what benefit he might have derived from the so-called point-scoring and he will leave the politics.

“How could an ailment come in the way of condemning the attack (on Charsadda University),” he wondered, adding he (Nisar) could have invited PTV for a minute and condemned the attack.

He said he would give his reply to the allegations levelled against him in the Parliament before the Prime Minister.

He said whenever the government was in trouble, he and his party came out to save the system. “I or my party did not save the government, we only saved democracy,” he added.

PPP is not reacting to the arrest of Dr Asim Hussain, he said. “His case is being handled by the courts and we have nothing to do with it,” he added.

“It seems as if only one person knows how effectively the National Action Plan has been implemented while the entire media, intellectuals and parliamentarians are ignorant,” he said.

He said whatever this one person states only reflects a mental sickness.

Earlier, Chaudhry Nisar addressing a Press conference said: “Incidents of terrorism in the country have gone down after launch of operation Zarb-e-Azb and NAP.”

He said those who had never read the NAP were criticising it, adding, that Constitutionally law and order is the responsibility of the provinces.

Nisar said that Pakistan is winning the war on terror by the efforts of military but losing it on psychological grounds.
