Talking to the media in the Assembly Chambers here today (Tuesday), Ch Parvez Elahi further asked the opposition to discard path of disruption, people will not let their negative agenda succeed because they are fully aware about their past defective performance, they know that Pakistan is facing economically bad days now due to Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif mainly.

He said now the country is moving forward on the road of progress and prosperity under leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
