Opposition has a right to oppose any move against national interest: Khurshid Shah

Islamabad: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Khurshid Shah on Friday said that opposition holds right to

defy any move going against country’s interest.

adding that PPP had introduced National Finance Commission (NFC) Award in its tenure. The dictator, who

Khurshid Shah said that the incumbent government of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) stumbles when it comes

to raising 10 percent salaries of the poverty-stricken people. Promote agriculture sector if you want to give

relief to the masses and boost economy of the country, he suggested.

PPP leader said, “We are in the favor of constructing dams but making this step a political move is

unaccepted.” He went on to say that the politicians should have good reputation as people will stop believing

in democracy if they make fake statements. “We should carefully make promises in the elections,” Khurshid

Shah said.
