LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has not proved to be a good sportsperson either as he is trying to take wicket on a “no-ball”, which is not possible.
Talking to assembly members here on Friday, he said that Imran Khan wanted to flout the constitution on the Constitution Avenue and that his unconstitutional demands would lead him to political suicide.
He said that some short-sighted elements wanted to put future of the nation at stake only to achieve their narrow political ends. He also said that no attempt to create instability in the country would be allowed by the nation and that patriotic people of Pakistan had not supported untimely long march or the so-called revolution.
The chief minister said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had full support of the people and that the prime minister had been democratically elected by the masses.
Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said that unanimous resolution adopted by the National Assembly and Senate for supremacy of the constitution and law represent the sentiments of the people.
He said that a few thousand people could not be allowed to impose their ideas on 180 million Pakistanis.
He said that the government wants solution to all problems through negotiations, as it believes in resolving rather than creating crises.
He said that the people have given mandate to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to steer the country out of the quagmire of problems and that elements involved in protest and negative politics should respect public opinion.
