Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo, President Punjab PPP, has condemned the ransacking of the transmission offices of the state television PTV, Islamabad by protestors as both condemnable and contemptible and therefore unpardonable.
He said that the workers of the PTI and PAT had damaged the cause of their parties grievously who had been projecting as the victim of the state violence.
He observed that it was not difficult to identify the culprits because the footage of the miscreants was available and these elements should be given exemplary punishment and the parties should expel them form their fold as a damage control measure.
Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo recalled that the PML(N) attack on the Supreme Court was still afresh in the minds of the people as a black and blemished spot on the political career of the party and would remain so for all times to come. The blunder is indefensible and they deeply repent it but the festering wound would never heel, he pointed out.
Drawing an analogy, Mr. Wattoo said that the attack on PTV building , Islamabad, will continue to haunt heavily politically to the parties of the culprits for the unforeseeable future to the parties whose workers attacked the state television building .
Mr. Wattoo said that the state buildings like the Parliament, President House, Prime Minister House, and Supreme Court were the symbol of country’s prestige and dignity and it was imperative upon all indiscriminately to uphold their sanctity. Belittling the sanctity of these national buildings tantamount to anti-state, anti-constitution and anti-democracy activity, he observed.
