Opposition leaders grill govt for victim blaming.

Opposition Leaders including Shehbaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz Sharif and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday came down hard on the federal government for blaming the victims after tragic deaths during the snowstorm in Murree.

Opposition Leader in the National Assembly and PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif said that Imran Khan had made victim blaming the governing philosophy of his otherwise directionless government. 'There is always someone 'responsible' for whatever goes wrong. A country of 220M people is being run by those whose default response is to shirk responsibility of their actions,' he said in a statement released on twitter.

'What a massive tragedy Murree is turning out to be! Heartbroken to learn about the loss of so many precious lives. My profound condolences and sympathies are with the bereaved families. May Allah rest the departed souls in peace!.'

Shehbaz also tweeted, 'Where do you pin the responsibility of these deaths? Where was the government all the while? What arrangements did it make to deal with such an influx? Incompetence is fast turning into criminality. Prior arrangements and round the clock supervision were the normal SOPs in the past.'
