KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Senator Chaudhry Aitezaz Ahsan said that federal government of PMLN has been puzzled after Panama Leaks that led to demands for the probe.
The federal government has since then reacted insanely and a complete portrayal of that absolute puzzlement was witnessed in Islamabad when the youth were subjected to manhandling by Police and Frontier Corpse.
He was addressing a news conference at PPP Media Cell Sindh Saturday evening. He was accompanied by leader of opposition in National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah, Senator Farhatullah Khan Babar, Shery Rehman and Senator Saeed Ghani while Ghulam Qadir and Zulfiquar Ali Kaim Khani were present.
On the issue of resignation of federal minister for information Pervez Rasheed, he said that the sacking of the Senator Rasheed was itself a manifest of a situation in which the PM is also in trouble.
Speaking on the occasion, Senator Babar said that the meeting of PPP top leaders with the Chairman had deliberated on various issues especially on the National Action Plan (NAP) and is convinced that Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has failed to implement it.
The sheer failure in implementing the NAP calls for immediate resignation of the minister concerned and in case the interior minister shows resistance, the PM should step forward and take his resignation, instead.
He said it was very unfortunate that the interior minister not only allowed the banned organisations to operate freely but had held a meeting with leaders of such banned organisations. The overall situation is that the federal government is unwilling to take against the terrorist organisations.
Sherry Rehman said that the situation could be different as is today provided that the federal government had allowed the Bill on investigations on corruption across the board as the Bill was duly signed by 9 major parties of the country.
She lambasted the federal government over its silence over atrocities by the Indian troops in Kashmir and said that the army is responding amicably on all fronts while it should be the civilian government to react but failed.
She said it is the duty of the federal government to carve out a way between the Lockdown and the Crackdown.
While responding to questions, Syed Khursheed Shah said that the overall situation in te country was very fragile and anything could happen. NNI
