PML (N) government will fall in days not in weeks if the PPP withdraw its support to the incumbent government, said Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo in a press conference here today.
He further said that the government had to give safe passage to Imran Khan and Dr. Tahir-ul- Qadari to end current political impasse adding only government was in a position to offer such concessions to the PTI and PAT because they were at the receiving end and the government was a deliverer.
To a question, Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo predicted that the government would not fall because almost all the opposition was on its side adding the entire leadership was committed to democracy, constitution and the rule of law. If it falls it will be solely due to its mistakes, he observed.
The extra-constitutional measures for the political change have least acceptance in the country if the latest survey conducted both by outfits of Pakistan or foreign countries are to be believed.
Earlier, in his opening statement, Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo said that the PML(N) successive governments were totally responsible for the losses of lives and properties inflicted due to the devastating floods in the past and the present because they were in power for the last thirty years in Punjab
He said that the apathy and inaptness of the Punjab Government was unpardonable because it did not care for the implementation of the Flood Commission Report of 2010 and as such the government was responsible for the losses occurred due to the floods and torrential rains.
He pointed out that the Punjab Chief Minister was notorious for playing to the gallery as each time the Chief Minister had photo session in the rain water wearing the same outfit and the long shoes. He forgets the tall promises soon after and his platitudes never followed by the coherent strategy to improve the sewerage system of the major cities of the province.
While expressing Party leadership and his deep condolences and sympathies to the bereaved families who lost their loves ones and live stock, Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo demanded that the government should immediately announce and extend immediate financial relief to the villagers and the farmers who had lost their crops of paddy and cotton in districts of Narowal, Sialkot, Shaikhupura, Hafizabad, Mandibhuddin, Jhang,Okara, Shiwal , Pakpattan and other districrs.
Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo called upon the government to evolve a mechanism of conducting surveys of the density populated localities of major cities and undertake the repair of houses declared dangerous well in time.
He observed that if the amount spent on Metro Bus projects have been spent on the repair and construction of low cost housing the entire needs of the population of the province would have been met.
Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo said that the he would visit Gujranwala division from tomorrow and see the working of the local relief camps established by the local PPP leadership.
