Islamabad: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Friday said that the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) will strongly oppose the tax amnesty bill and accountability bill in the assembly.
He stated this while talking to media representatives in Islamabad. Nisar said that the PML-N would not accept those bills and if they would be approved by the parliament, PML-N would terminate them after coming into power.
Responding on the fair trial bill passed in the assembly, Nisar said that it was wrong perception created by media that the bill was approved with consensus. “Fair trial bill was approved by the majority, not with the consensus of the assembly,” he added. He said that the party had some reservations on the bill as some of its amendments violate the human rights of the people.
The PML-N leader has also lashed out at President Zardari’s decision to appoint new governor in Punjab and said that the change would not affect PML-N and the next elections would be won by the parties on the basis of their performances. Nisar said that his party would demand change of governors of all the provinces with the consultation of opposition parties before elections. He said that all the governors have political affiliation with ruling party.
Nisar said change of governor two-and-a-half-month prior to election is tantamount to poll rigging and shows frustration of President.
