Qadri should wait for next elec­tions: JUI-F

Imran, Qadri ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing Mushar­raf trial have con­nec­tions

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - IS­LAM­ABAD—

The Spokesper­son of JUI, Jan Achakzai, has said that Dr. Tahir ul Qadri’s protest is not aimed at cleansing the sys­tem rather he wants to pack up the demo­cratic polity of the coun­try.

In a state­ment, he said that Qadri has no stakes in the coun­try, in­clud­ing his in­vest­ment, and even he is not ready to ditch his dual na­tion­al­ity. “How come you want to be a leader of 20 mil­lion Pak­ista­nis when you are not pre­pared to of­fer this small sac­ri­fice: ditch­ing Cana­dian pass­port”, he asked.

Achakzai said that Dr Qadri does not get tired of cit­ing Pak­istani con­sti­tu­tion but for­gets that he has sworn al­le­giance to the Queen of Eng­land. “Do not for­get your oath when you said: I swear by Almighty God that, on be­com­ing a Cana­dian sub­ject, I will be faith­ful and bear true al­le­giance to Her Majesty Queen El­iz­a­beth the Sec­ond, Her Heirs and Suc­ces­sors ac­cord­ing to law”.

He said that Dr Qadri has no al­ter­na­tive so­lu­tion and sim­ply wants to dis­solve as­sem­blies which have no place in the con­sti­tu­tion. He chal­lenged if Dr Qadri con­tested elec­tions to­day he would face a crush­ing de­feat. Achakzai asked Dr Qadri to get rid of dual na­tion­al­ity, come to Pak­istan, face crit­i­cism like any other politi­cian, wait for next gen­eral elec­tions and then par­tic­i­pate, oth­er­wise, gone are the days of com­ing into power through sneak­ing ways. He said that JUI will not al­low any body to de­rail democ­racy un­der what­so­ever slo­gan. Faisal­abad: Pun­jab Law Min­is­ter Rana sanaullah has said that the demo­cratic gov­ern­ment was ac­cepted by the peo­ple and now it should be let to work ac­cord­ing to the con­sti­tu­tion of the coun­try.

Talk­ing to me­dia per­sons af­ter in­au­gu­ral cer­e­mony of Traf­fic Engineering Plan­ning Agency ( TEPA) here, the law min­is­ter said that democ­racy in the coun­try has strength­ened. He said con­spir­a­cies are be­ing hatched against Pak­istan since last 65, adding that the coun­try could not af­ford any other mishap.

He said the Pun­jab gov­ern­ment would sup­port en­hanc­ing TEPA in the fu­ture and the in­sti­tu­tion was timely set up which was a need of the hour. He said the gov­ern­ment would launch seven other mega projects in Faisal­abad soon for which plan­ning was un­der­way.— INP
