KARACHI – Senior Minister for Education Nisar Khuhro has said that the Pakistan Muslim League-N has refused to sit with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and he believed that the opposition was not united in the province.
Talking to journalists at his office inside the Sindh Assembly, Khuhro said that no time period has been fixed for appointment of the leader of opposition in the provincial assembly. The house is working without the leader of the opposition earlier and it will continue to do so.
The provincial minister said that the opposition members could give their proposals for the provincial budget individually. To a question, Khuhro said that Tahirul Qadri denounces democracy in Pakistan while sitting outside the country. He said Imran Khan had backed the referendum of Pervez Musharraf.
For him (Imran), the referendum of Musharraf was transparent and democratic elections are non-transparent, he said. The minister also said that the provincial government would provide funds to the universities but would also make them accountable. The universities would be given autonomy but not unbridled freedom.
The minister said that the province would provide one-time meal or bicycles to the schoolchildren instead of laptops.
