PML-N should apply minus one formula on Shahbaz Sharif – by Junaid Qaiser

In a recent address to the PPP workers, President Asif Ali Zardari said government will ensure free and fair, transparent elections. We beleive in domocracy and we’ll ensure the electroral process will be transperent and fair. The local body elections are approaching and our oppenents will come to know that masses are with us.

Pakistan People’s Party is a symbol of democracy and federation, and independent observers are quite certain that PPP will perform well in the forthcoming local bodies elections, and all the opponents will see that we are the most popular political party. Due to PPP’s pro people programmes and progress and worst sort of performance of Punjab’s administrator (punjab based political party’s president) Punjab once again is going to become citadet of Pakistan Peoples Party.

Due to bad governance, no clear stance on terrorism, irresponsible attitude, Godfather’s mindset, ignoring citizens basic needs and petty politics on non-issues such as judges, NRO, 17th amendment. People are going to vote-out PML-N (the Punjab based party) in NA55 in Rawalpindi.

PML-N is not doing positive politics, PML-N is just criticizing, not giving Government or Parliament alternative solutions. Mere doing politics on 17th amendment, as all know very well that constitutional committee is working and Ishaq Dar and Ahsan Iqbal are in that committee. Instead they are busy in petty politics and legislation inside parliament, and are declaring parliament redundant. People like Shahbaz Sharif and Chauhdry Nisar are seriously damaging party, lots of PML-N members MPA, MNAs are not happy with party’s politics.

PML-N and especially Shahbaz Sharif have not learnt any lesson from their past mistakes, he is even misleading Mian Nawaz Sharif….and you’ll see that PMLN will face defeat even in Punjab…therefore PMLN was running away from elections…

Shahbaz Sharif and his hawks followers have been breathing fire against the President and Pakistan peoples Party since president Asif Zardari’s arrival in Punjab, this is causing tension between the two coalition partner in Punjab.

Shahbaz Sharif and his tag team partner”chaudhary of Chakri(baz) Nisar is once again causing great demage to conducive political democratic environment and also violating charter of democracy, when both met secretly with the chief of army staff.

Instead concentrating their it’s own work, PMLN leadership is continously targeting President Asif Ali Zardari. Due to this negative politics Punjab’s administrators own performance is nill and zero.

Pakistan Peoples Party knows that the PML-N men are doing so at the behest of Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif. Had there been no endorsement from Mr Sharif, Rana Sana and Iqbal would not have dared to issue harsh statements against the president.

This is not acceptable to our workers. PPP Punjab Secretary-General Samiullah Khan clearly said.

Although President Zardari did not give a go-ahead to his party loyalists to respond to the PML-N’s hawks at a meeting with the PPP Punjab executives at the Governor’s House here on Friday, but the party provincial leadership has decided to come hard on the Sharifs for “allowing their hawks to target Mr Zardari”.

The PPP secretary general said: “In fact the PML-N has lost its wits after the arrival of President Zardari at Lahore. The PML-N was quiet when the president was on a Sindh visit and the day he landed at Lahore, it got nervous and has crossed all limits of decency while speaking against President.”

The PML-N leadership, he said, feared that it might lose its control over Lahore – a city it calls its citadel — if the president continued paying regular visits to the city. “The PML-N should not think itself a party of a province and it must accept the existence of other political forces here too,” Samiullah khan said.

Contradicting Rana Sanaullah’s statement, PPP Punjab President Rana Aftab Ahmad said the federal government had beforehand intimated the Punjab chief secretary and the IGP about the president’s arrival at Lahore. “The PPP workers are very emotional about their leadership and they will not tolerate such elements in the PML-N,” he said while remarking that “Rana Sanaullah must take lessons on ethics.”

Federal Labour Minister Khurshid Shah also expressed surprise over Shahbaz Sharif’s statement in which he had asked President Zardari to quit the office along with him to face courts. “Shahbaz’s statement is against the spirit of Charter of Democracy,” he said.

EX CM Punjab Chaudhry Pervaiz Ellahi seems right when he said “Shahbaz Sharif ne punjab ka beda ghariq ker diya hae” and Sharif brothers are lairs”. Under Shahbaz Sharif Punjab first time in Pakistani history become bankrupt.Shahbaz Sharif is too much dependant on bureaucracy and his task forces thus ignoring democratically elected assembly and cabinet,which is against democratic spirit.

The so called custodian of merit Shahbaz Sharif is the best exemple of neptoism and favouritism; the nation still remember that he and his tag team partner Chaudhary Nisar promoted and elevated General Pervaiz Musharaf and violated the principle of seniority.

Democratic forces have shown great anger over their recent secret meeting with the Chief of Army Staff. Here I want o give free advice to the PML-N leaders that instead of giving advice to other parties, PML-N should apply the minus one formula on Shahabaz Sharif.

Despite all the odds, the PPP still believe in politics of reconciliation. Fouzia Wahab PPP’s central information secretary said PPP would exercise restraint and would not respond PMLN’s tirade against the politics of confrontation and wants to promote tolerance. President Zardari reiterated that the PPP would continue the process of reconciliation and take along all political forces in the interst of the country.

President said some elements did not want him to speak for the rights of workers. Pakistan belongs to the poor. If our opponents think that giving rights and making the workers economicaly independent is a sin,we’ll continue to commit it again and again.
