Opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif mocks PM Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: The word ‘selected’ has become a taunt for Prime Minister Imran Khan that will continue till the end of the world, the Opposition leader said Saturday.

“Prime Minister Niazi made such a huge blunder that ‘selected’ has become a taunt for him and it will continue till the day the world ends,” Shehbaz Sharif said, using the incumbent premier’s last name instead of the popular ‘Khan’.

Sharif, the leader of the Opposition in National Assembly and president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), met with journalists and media personnel. Other party leaders, including Rana Sanaullah, Khurram Dastagir, Mian Javed Latif, Marriyum Aurangzeb, former foreign minister Khawaja Asif, and ex-prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, were also present.

“The House had become a fish market during the budget session and the first four days were wasted and members of the government kept adding fuel to the fire,” he said.

The society has started to lose patience, the Opposition leader noted, adding that they “have had disagreements in the past but this kind of atmosphere was never there”.
