ROHRI (92 News) – Pakistan People’s Party leader Khurshid Shah has on Saturday said that there is no problem if the local body elections can be delayed considering the flood situation in Sindh.

Khurshid Shah said that whether it’s Imran Khan, Moulana Fazlur Rehman, Nawaz Sharif or Muttahida Qaumi Movement, Pakistan People’s Party always supported democracy in the country.

He said that the PTI chief Imran Khan should follow the agreement with the government.

Opposition leader said that the prime minister is the premier of the country and he should visit every place, adding that there was no issue in Sindh by the grace of almighty Allah.
