LAHORE – Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan could not prove himself as a good sportsman as he is trying to take wicket on no ball which is not possible.
Talking to lawmakers here on Friday, the chief minister said that Imran Khan wanted to flout national constitution on Constitution Avenue and his unconstitutional demands would lead him to political suicide. He said some shortsighted elements wanted to put future of the nation at stake only to achieve their narrow political ends.
Shahbaz said that no attempt to create instability in Pakistan would be allowed by the nation. He said that the patriotic people of Pakistan had not supported untimely long march or the so-called revolution. Nawaz Sharif had full public support and he had been democratically-elected prime minister, he said.
He said that unanimous resolution adopted by the National Assembly and the Senate for the supremacy of the constitution and law represent the sentiments of the people. He said a few thousand persons cannot be allowed to impose their ideas on majority people. He said that the government wants solution to all problems through negotiations as it believes in resolving rather than creating crises.
The chief minister said that the people have given mandate to the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz-N to steer Pakistan out of the quagmire of problems and the elements involved in protest and negative politics should respect public opinion.
