ISLAMABAD – Leader of Opposition in National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah said on Tuesday that the situation in Pakistan might turn for the worse in case the government was advised to put Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan under house arrest.
Speaking to journalists here, Khursheed said that Imran Khan's demand for re-election was incomprehensible as it would have to be conducted by the same election commission which had conducted the polls in May 2013.
The Pakistan People's Party leader said that electoral reforms were needed for the holding of new election and the reforms would require a significant amount of time to be implemented. He said that Dr Tahirul Qadri was creating problems for himself through his statements.
Khursheed said that the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief's statement of bloodshed could worsen the situation. He said that if the statements were meant as a joke then a joke of this nature could prove harmful.
The opposition leader said Qadri should learn from the actions of the late PPP leader Benazir Bhutto who never spoke of seeking revenge despite having knowledge of her killers.
