PPP challenges opposition to take corruption charges to court
10 September, 2012
SUKKUR: Federal Minister for Religious Affairs Syed Khursheed Shah on Sunday challenged the opposition to bring the PPP leadership in court if they had any proof of corruption against it.
Addressing the media at the inaugural ceremony of Nusrat Bhutto International University in Sukkur on Sunday, the federal minister asked PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif to take legal action against PPP leaders if he thinks they had been involved in corruption.
He said an uncertain situation had been created in Sindh regarding local government without going through the ordinance.
Shah said the government had not discussed the interim set-up of the government with the opposition as yet, however, he said the opposition had been taken onboard while making amendments in the constitution and presenting 111 bills and acts in the past.
Referring to the reaction of nationalists over the ordinance, Shah said, "It is their right; we give them the right to shut doors, shops and routes." He remarked that if 1,000 people come out and block roads, or a few hand grenades exploded, others would not come out of their houses because of fear.
