The leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah on Tuesday said that the economy has deteriorated during the PML-N government.

Talking to the media in Lahore, PPP leader said it would frighten any civilians if they get to know the real figures and debt situations PML-N has put Pakistan in. "There has been an increase of about $60,000 billion debt from 2013 till now."

Over the issue of Kashmir, Shah said that PPP has done the most for people of Kashmir. "We developed nuclear capability only for Kashmir, we have stood by them in times of adversity and will always support the cause of Kashmir," he remarked.

When asked about not commenting on a few questions at a recent sports event, Shah said that he does not appreciate merging politics with other institutions.

"All institutions must work and excel in their own ambit. The reason why sports is lagging behind is because PML-N has put inept people in place to run the show. There should be qualified people working and taking charge," he lamented.

Shah also added saying that the situation of farmers has come to a point where they lack hope and are in absolute despair. He shared that the parliament suggested PML-N to start exports earlier when the price was low but no heed was paid to the advice, and now the economy is suffering due to their inadequate policies and lethargy.
