Speaking here at National Assembly, the minister said that Parliament was a forum to discuss the issues of national importance, but unfortunately, one of the opposition lawmaker (Javed Latif) had been using it to clarify his position in a corruption case.

The minister also condemned the attack on residence of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in London and said that none of political party or its worker was involved in it.
