ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Defense Production, Rana Tanvir on Wednesday said that Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly Khursheed Shah should maintain dignity of his important position and avoid using his important portfolio for bargaining and personal benefits from the government.

The minister said that he could understand annoyance of Pakistan Peoples Party’s leaders from Interior Minister because he was main hurdle in a way of PPP past and present corruption.
He said that it was beyond his understandings that how could leader of opposition who gained record personal benefits from the government was raising questions on the performance of the government.
The minister said Khursheed Shah was in habit of speaking lying and advised him to speak lie to extent that is digestible.
He said that more than 20 thousands people were killed in thousands of terrorist incidents during PPP rule but its leadership remained sleeping.
He question that Khursheed Shah should also tell the nation whether a single judicial commission was constituted to investigate thousands of terrorist incidents in PPP government.
“If he forgets his five years rule, he should tell any judicial commission is constituted by Sindh government on three major terrorist incidents of Safoora, Kherpur and attack on Karachi airport”.
He said that rule of PPP remained focus on one point agenda and PPP leadership still pursing the same agenda, adding this is why arrest of Dr Asim was not being digested from PPP and he is same pillar of same agenda.
