Governor says political issues can be resolved on table
LAHORE: Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar has appealed to all the political and religious parties to show unity against challenges faced by the country by averting long march, rallies, sit-ins and confrontation.
He expressed these views while addressing a ceremony organised to celebrate Christmas and birthday of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah on Friday at the Governor House and later was talking to media. “Everyone will have to sit together. We want to give a unified message to the enemies that we are united.
No international power will be able to conspire against Pakistan,” the governor said. Badshahi Mosque Khateeb Maulana Abdul Kabeer Azad, Mufti Ashiq Hussain and other representatives of Sikh, Christian and Hindu community were also present.
While talking to media persons, the governor said Indian threats could only be countered by standing united against it. “I request PDM parties to set aside personal interests and prefer national interests over personal interests.” Sarwar said India should refrain from aggression.
“As many as 220 million Pakistanis are standing with their armed forces to defend the country. If India makes any attempt against Pakistan, we will give a befitting response to India. Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah called Kashmir as jugular vein of Pakistan. We assure people of Kashmir that we are standing with Kashmiris till the liberty from Indian occupation,” the governor said.
