SUKKUR: Referring to Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) patron-in-chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s  ‘namaloom afraad‘ comment, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah, while speaking to reporters in Sukkur on Tuesday, clarified that Bilawal spoke in light of the present situation, Radio Pakistan reported.

On October 6, Bilawal had lashed out at Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain, asking him to control his “namaloom afraad”.

“PPP believes in politics of reconciliation and there is no change in its policy,” Shah stated.


Referring to the twin sit-ins in Islamabad, the PPP leader remarked that these protests have negatively affected the country’s economy.

He also said that the Chinese president’s visit was postponed because of the sit-ins.

The Chinese president’s visit to Pakistan, scheduled for the second week of September, was postponed after his security team failed to provide clearance.

The prevailing political crisis has engulfed the nation’s capital since August 14. Protest leaders Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairperson Imran Khan have laid the blame for the postponement squarely on the government.

    The beauty of PPP-Z’s politics is that everyone makes statements that contradict each other and many a time they contradict themselves……….creating confusion and then try extract what you want out of it.

    Khursheed Shah is walking talking example of common man’s success in Pak politics. From electricity bill collector to Leader of Opposition in less than 30 years. Can PTI beat that?

    Ironic: Khursheed Shah has to justify whatever the crown prince has uttered! He can’t do otherwise. This is why dynasty makes no sense.

    Why is it that in Pakistan a meter reader can become billionaire through politics? Public service all over the world is not the path to riches! Jobs, Alison, Gates even Rockefeller and Carnegie of the bygone days were not American Politicians but businessmen and entrepreneurs.

    Why in Pakistan, richest are Shareef and Bhuttos and characters like Khursheed Shah who is now worth Rs 50 billion! What did they invent/design/market? What innovative products did they create or MNCs they built to justify that wealth? Something is seriously wrong here and it corroborates with Khan’s narrative!

    Zardari is the most clever man and dictates Bilawal masterly and cleveryly because his son says what he wants to say and later solves the tensions raises after his son’s statements…..Recommend
