ISLAMABAD: Opposition Leader in National Assembly Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah Thursday said that deteriorating law and order situation across the country was playing havoc with the national economy.
Talking to APP, he said the government should focus all its attention towards this core issue because until and unless we do not overcome this menace, we cannot strengthen our economy.
“Due to terrorism, our country is going backwards day by day and we are lagging behind other nations on the globe,” he added.
Khursheed Shah said that the opposition has given full mandate to the government to cope with deteriorating law and order situation of the country and ready to provide all possible assistance into this regard in future.
He was of the view that `Pakistan comes first’ and democracy is the best system to run the government.
The extremists have not only hurt the country economically but have also destroyed the image of Islam in the eyes of the world and this was part of a big conspiracy, he maintained.
