Secretary General PPP, Punjab, Tanvir Ashraf Kaira has referred to the serious allegations of the Ex- Army Chief, General Mirza Aslam Beg in his interview to a local TV channel that appeared in the print media of today, in which he has said that Imran Kahan and Dr. Tahir-ul- Qadari were pursuing the foreign agenda through their sit-ins targeted to destabilize the democratic dispensation in Pakistan.
This he stated in a statement issued from here today adding that the allegations should be probed thoroughly because the contents of the interview, if true, were tantamount to direct assault on the independence of the country in violation of the international law as well that prohibited the interference in the internal affairs of the country by the member states of the United Nations.
He maintained that the timing and the strategy of PTI and PAT moving in tandem though pointed to the veracity of the allegations to a degree but irrefutable evidence must be gathered in view of the sensitivity of the matter and its far reaching implications in the country’s politics.
Tanvir Ashfar Kaira said that the legacies of the PPP leaders were invaluable asset of the Party that accrued because the Party had rendered ultimate sacrifices for the cause of democracy, constitution and empowerment of the people of the country. The Party has the enviable history and its unblemished track record in this regard is a valuable asset of the Party.
He said that Imran Khan’s use of un-parliamentary language against the leaders of the other political parties was hurting him and his Party more than the politicians who were the target of his indecent expressions in public meetings. He will face the retribution because if you sow whirl you will end up with reaping whirlwind, he observed.
Tanvir Ashraf Kaira said that the PPP was committed to democracy and the constitution and would defend it come what may. PPP gave the unanimous constitution to the people of Pakistan and it was only the constitution that had been safeguarding the unity of the federation after the East Pakistan debacle, he argued.
