First achievement came before coming into power – breaking two party system deeply entrenched in politics of Pakistan. LOH Senator Dr Shahzad Waseem
ISLAMABAD – Leader of the House in the Senate Dr Shahzad Waseem, while winding up the debate on the presidential address, in the upper house yesterday brushed aside the criticism of opposition parties on the PTI government and said that Prime Minister Imran Khan actually broke the two-party system that had damaged the country badly.
He criticizing the two major opposition parties, PPP and PML-N, said that Pakistan faced international isolation and the country’s economy as well as state institutions were facing deterioration when PTI took power.
He said that PTI government not only strengthened the economy but also raised the stature of the country by playing the role of a facilitator to resolve the regional issues.
He referred to the PML-N leadership and alleged that they avoided to talk on Kashmir issue in their meetings with Indian leadership. He said that the whole world knew the credentials of PM Imran Khan and also mentioned his “bold speech” at the UN by presenting the case of Kashmir there.
He said that Pakistan without siding any one has played the role of facilitator when it comes to Saudi-Iran issue and Afghan peace process.
