PPP senior leader Khursheed Shah has said that there is no final decision in politics and decisions are taken keeping in view the changing circumstances. He has also said that the opposition is on the same page in the parliament, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Mr Shah was talking to media outside the accountability court in Sukkur where he came to attend the hearing of a case against him on Monday.
He said that there wasn’t anything final in politics and decisions kept changing according to the changed circumstances. He was of the view that there was consensus among the opposition parties on all major issues. He, however, said that he would try to bring opposition on a single platform as everyone accorded respect to him.
He held that the economy was beyond Prime Minister Imran Khan. The premier did not understand it and he got rid of questions after giving a momentary statement, he added.
He said those who declared Imran Khan as honest and truthful, everybody knew how honest and truthful they were.
He maintained that the biggest problem of this country was inflation. The government after announcing Rs120 billion subsidy, put a crushing burden of Rs200 billion on the poor by increasing the prices of petroleum products.
He said the meat was available for Rs1,300/kg in Karachi and Rs1,200/kg in Sukkur. It used to be sold at Rs700, he added.
Mr Shah regretted that prices of electricity and oil had increased manifold. He said he was afraid that till December the oil price would exceed Rs150/litre and the dollar rate would hover above
