He said that honor of Nawaz Sharif is to honor the vote but today the government is destroying the honor of the vote, Today it has been abundantly abused by Parliament, I often say respect the Parliament and make decisions in Parliament, Today, once again the Parliament is being decided because for the first time an unauthorized person is offering a budget of the Parliament.
