Sheikh Rashid repeatedly cursed the parliament during the rally in Lahore a day before and announced his resignation from his National Assembly seat, prompting Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan to consider quitting the assemblies on the grounds that parliament had lost its utility in protecting people’s rights. Khan, voicing his support for Rashid, had also "cursed" the parliament. Addressing the house, Khursheed Shah denounced words used for parliament. He said PPPP respects the parliament and will always do so. Speaking on a point of order he said, “the words used against the parliament are painful for me, for democratic people and for the entire nation”. He raised slogans in favor of Pakistan and democracy and said that Pakistan and democracy will remain forever. He said that PPPP leadership had rendered unmatched sacrifices for the democracy and supremacy of the parliament. He said that it was the parliament, which made Pakistan’s atomic power, passed 18th amendment, transferred the powers to provinces and made legislation for the welfare of the common men. – Samaa/APP
