SUKKUR: The Panama leaks is an open catalogue of corruption, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah said on Sunday.
“When Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is ready to face it, why are his [cabinet] ministers posing a hindrance?” asked Shah. “Be it the Panama Papers, Bahamas leaks or WikiLeaks, everyone is reluctant to discuss it.”
Extreme poverty can be rooted out from the country by bringing an end to corruption, according to Shah. Better education can also help in ending corruption and for this purpose we have to produce more and more educated people, he believed.
Shah urged the multinational companies to come forward and pay their due share for the education of the poor and deserving.
“I will take up this matter to parliament,” he disclosed adding that education and health facilities should be free for all throughout the country.
“Imran Khan’s Raiwind march will fail to put a dent in the government because while he [Imran] will go there and sit on the ground to protest, the prime minister will use a helicopter to and from Jati Umra,” said Shah.
