Govt pushes opposition to the wall: Shibli

Opposition Leader in Senate Shibli Faraz has said the House has been turned into a ‘royal residence’ as the opposition is pushed to the wall.

Speaking at the Senate session, Faraz said the opposition’s questions were always being ignored which was worrisome.

Yesterday, the PPP parliamentary leader presented a resolution without showing it to the opposition, he said.

“You are good in numbers but there are some democratic values. Today, we are not required by you, but tomorrow you defiantly will seek our help. You should not make us feel that we are not the part of the House,” he said.

The cabinet was also expected to give approval for pursuing cases under Article 6 of the Constitution against former President Arif Alvi, PTI founder Imran Khan, and Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri.

On July 15, Information Minister Atta Tarar said that the ruling coalition had decided to move for a ban on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

Addressing a press conference, he said the federal government will file a case to ban the PTI. The government would keep the current situation in mind before taking a step in this regard, he added.

“The PTI and the country cannot go together,” he categorically stated.

He claimed that the government was trying to stabilise the country politically and economically, while efforts were being made to thwart its efforts.

Tarar also announced that the PML-N led government has decided to file a review appeal against the decision of the Supreme Court granting reserved seats to the PTI.
