Sunday, May 11, 2014 – Okara—President of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Punjab, Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo has said that the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri’s dreams of Iran like revolution in Pakistan couldn’t be materialized. Talking to media persons after condoling the death of brother of renowned poet Masood Okarvi with the bereaved family here on Saturday, Manzoor Wattoo said the revolution in Iran was based on ‘Authoritarianism’ there but there exists a democratically elected government in Pakistan.
He said if agitation of chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan failed the government will continue to govern and if thumb impressions in four constituencies were proved fake, the country will move towards mid-term elections. Wattoo admitted that a large scale rigging in previous general elections was carried out but said that PPP accepted the results of polls for the sake of continuation of democracy.
He said that Imran Khan has been demanding probe in four constituencies and Election Commission should accept his justified demand.—INP
