Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo, President Punjab PPP, has said, the PPP under the leadership of Co- Chairman Mr. Asef Ali Zardari is pro-actively involved and striving hard for the amicable settlement of the present political crisis well before the visit of the Chinese President to Pakistan.
This he said in a statement issued from here today. He urged the agitating parties to create flexibility in their maximal position because give and take was the essence pf negotiations.
He added that the obstinacy never yield desirable prognosis and this was truer in politics especially in which the leadership had to make compromises for the sake of ultimate objective. In this case, it is the continuity of the democratic process in Pakistan, he observed.
He maintained that the politics was the art of possible and the politicians who failed to make it happen indeed reflected their inaptness in the art of politics leading to darkness instead of to the light of a promising future.
Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo earnestly urged the PTI leadership to accept the Judicial Commission to investigate the allegations of rigging suggesting that the leaders of the Parliamentary Parties should guarantee non- interference by the Prime Minister and Imran Khan should accept parliamentary leaders as grantors.
Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo took exception to the language uttered by PTI Chief Dr. Tahir-ul- Qadari against the very well respected leader of the PPP, Syed Khurshid Shah who was also leader of the Opposition.
He added that Syed Khurshid Shah was not only a valuable asset for the PPP but also for the Parliamentary politics of the country. He has been playing the role of firefighter trying to dampen the flames of the country’s politics that had engulfed it for the last couple of weeks.
He welcomed the resumptions of negotiations among the parties and expressed his optimism that the political solution of the present stalemate was not a far-fetched any more.
He pointed out that the whole nation was on the tenterhooks for the last many days and passing through an ordeal in the face of uncertainty of an agonizing proportion.
