Syed Khursheed Shah takes exception to govt’s claim of $1.5 bln gift

Leader of the Opposition in NA Syed Khursheed Shah has said that no one in the world’s history has given a massive sum of $1.5 billion as a gift, saying that it should be included to the Guinness Book of World Records. Talking to journalists outside the Parliament House today (Yesterday), Shah urged Information Minister Perviaz Rasheed to desist from doing more such secret agreements.

On one hand, rulers call it a gift; while on the other hand, they say that $1.5 billion has been given on PM Nawaz Sharif’s individual assurance. The federal government is now receiving gifts on personal guarantees, he said. The opposition leader mentioned that to cover one lie, the government has to speak hundred more lies. To a query, he said that Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali acted irresponsibly on the matter of terrorist attack on Islamabad’s district court.

Syed Khursheed Shah stated that the govt should respond to Taliban’s criticism about Defence Minister Khawaja Asif.
