Khursheed Shah Warns: Removing PM Shehbaz Could Be Dangerous

Khursheed Shah

PPP leader Khursheed Shah has cautioned that removing Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif from power would be “dangerous” and could lead the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) towards engaging in blackmail.

In an interview with Munizae Jahangir on the show “Spotlight,” Shah expressed his firm belief that Shehbaz Sharif should continue as the prime minister and should not be replaced.

Shah addressed the ongoing divisions within political parties, emphasizing that national leaders should not be changed frequently.

He opined that Nawaz Sharif should have assumed the role of PML-N chairman rather than party president, noting a perceived lack of confidence in Shehbaz Sharif.

Shah warned that removing Shehbaz would set a bad precedent and potentially cause further divisions within the party.

When questioned about the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) joining the federal cabinet, Shah stated that this was not currently under consideration.

He clarified that the party’s Central Executive Committee would make any final decisions regarding this matter.

Shah mentioned that the PPP would not seek ministerial positions but would assist the government in managing national issues, stressing that any decision would be unanimous.

Shah also highlighted the importance of involving young party members in Parliament and assured that the PPP supports freedom of expression and media independence. Discussions about the appointment of the Sindh governor were ongoing, he added.

Addressing broader national concerns, Shah called for attention to be paid to the country’s pressing issues, such as population control, which he identified as crucial for economic stability.

He emphasized that with such a large population, managing the economy becomes increasingly challenging.

Regarding reports of a clash between the establishment and the judiciary, Shah advised both institutions to proceed cautiously.

He noted that he had not seen property tycoon Malik Riaz’s recent social media post in which Riaz vowed not to capitulate to pressure.

On the topic of a grand dialogue, Shah asserted that while the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) and the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) might not participate directly, they could offer support behind the scenes.

Shah expressed hope that parliamentary committees would be formed before the budget to guide the government on a “straight line” and ensure effective governance.
