Mian Manzoor Wattoo,President PPP Central Punjab, while commenting on the resignation of the Governor Punjab, Chaudhry Sarwar, has said in a statement issued from here today that he himself tendered resignation because he wielded no power and was helpless in the face of exclusive governance style of Punjab Chief Minister.
He said that the press conference of the Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar, outgoing Governor of Punjab, today amplified his helplessness as he could not deliver to improve the quality of life of the poor masses for which he was committed from the outset.
He recalled that Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar had been urging upon the government to hold local bodies elections, provide education to 23 million children and arrange supply of clean drinking water but his attempts to persuade the top leadership fell on their deaf ear as there was no change of heart and the apathy continued to sway the thinking of the mandarins.
He observed that Chudhry Muhammad Sarwar rightly pointed out the failure of diplomacy of Pakistan because US President visited India twice but not to Pakistan even once despite the fact that the country had been facing the major brunt of terrorism as a frontline state. He was right that the government failed to sensitize the US administration the amount of sacrifices and sufferings of the Pakistani nation had to undergo during the war on terror, he added.
He said that the people of Pakistan had been fed up with this government due to the day-to- today crisis adding their all hopes of any improvement had been dashed for all times to come.
The miseries of load shedding of gas and electricity along with the disappearing of the petrol during the last week exposed the height of mismanagement and inaptness of the government because it could not anticipate the supply and demand of these essential services well in advance.
He added their claims of controlling the load shedding of electricity in months instead of years sound grossly laughable because the situation of load shedding instead of improving had gone from bad to worse.
They lied to the people of Pakistan during the election campaign that optimizes the height of their electroal dishonesty, he asserted.
