ISLAMABAD: National Assembly opposition leader Syed Khursheed Shah on Wednesday severely criticised Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan for declaring Islamabad a “safe city”. Speaking to media in his Parliament House chamber, Shah questioned Nisar’s “safe city” claim for Islamabad. “If this is peace then what is insecurity?” he asked sarcastically. Shah advised the interior minister to “get rid of his egoistic attitude” and focus more on resolving pressing issues rather than running after the talks with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TPP). “How long we will see the dead bodies falling?” he asked. “Terrorists attacked the capital city twice in recent days, but still claims of peace have been made,” Shah observed and asked who was behind this heinous act. The opposition leader said that if the TPP is not involved in the Fruit Market terrorist attack then who is. Talking about the statement of Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif, Shah said that it was neither against democracy nor a threat. He blamed the government for all the “mess”, saying it had made controversial statements that created a rift between institutions. Shah said that a confrontation between the state institutions is not a positive thing, and asked every institution to remain within its limit. He also advised the federal ministers to remain within their limits while speaking on the issue.
