Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah has expressed his displeasure over the sit in at D-Chowk Islamabad by the supporters of the religious parties, saying the government should have put the forces on high alert after ‘Imran’s Show’.

Talking to the media at Pakistan Sweet Home, Sukkur, on the occasion of birthday celebrations of some of the inmates on Thursday night, he said it is surprising how such a big mob managed to reach D Chowk. He added he would put up the question in parliament.

On the occasion, Shah denounced the Lahore park blast, which claimed 75 lives, and said the prime minister should have visited Lahore to console with the families of the victims.  He said that such incidents took place in other parts of the country, but the prime minister chose not the visit them. However, the blast in Lahore at least prompted him to address the nation, Shah said, adding that he is the prime minister of the whole country, not just Punjab.

Khursheed Shah evaded answering a question regarding no indication about the Indian spy in the PM’s address to the nation. However, on another question about the alleged arrest of the Indian spy from Ramzan Sugar Mills, which belongs to Sharif family, Shah said, ‘I don’t know about it’.

He said it’s high time we let the world know about how India is interfering in Pakistan’s internal matters and its role especially in the unrest in Balochistan.
