Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo, President Punjab PPP, has rejected PML(N)’s decision in bringing out rallies in the country as ill-conceived and self-defeating. He said this in a statement issued from here today.
He maintained that the government rallies would tantamount to damping the political burning fire by throwing gasoline on it adding it would aggravate the volatile political environment in the country.
The ruling party must not vitiate the environment instead undertake all possible steps to assuage the ongoing confrontation between the parties who had made the nation hostage of their egoes.
He said that the ruling Party was the big stake holder in the system and the confrontation migh benefit the opposition but surely undermine the political system in the country.
He predicted that the bloody clash between the agitating parties leading to loss of lives would pose the greatest danger to democracy and the inevitability of political redundancy of the fighting political parties.
He called upon the government to register FIR against those who had been accused as responsible for murdering the PAT workers at Model Town and injuring many by bullet shots. Delay in this regard is raising the question of the indiscriminate application of law in the province of Punjab, he observed.
Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo said that the PPP woul not compromise on the future of democracy come what may adding that the Party leadership was acutely concerned on the prevailing political situation in the country.
He said that the former President Asef Ali Zardari’s recent visit to Lahore where he met important leaders were reflective of his keenness to resolve the conflict through dialogue in the interest of the federation, democracy and the constitution.
While referring to the CEC meeting of the Party held in Karachi yesterday Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo said that the decision to from a Committee mandated to get in touch with all the stakeholders in order to defuse the political deadlock reflected the sincerity of the Party and its leadership to extricate the nation out of the crippling stalemate.
