Mid-term polls de­mand ridicu­lous no­tion

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - RA­JAN­PUR—

Se­nior mem­ber of Pub­lic Ac­counts Com­mit­tee Jafer Khan Laghari has termed de­mand for midterm elec­tion a ridicu­lous no­tion.

Talk­ing to jour­nal­ists here Satur­day, he cat­e­gor­i­cally said those dream­ing of res­ig­na­tion from in­cum­bent rulers would stand fail­ure.

He said, peo­ple of Seraiki re­gion had elected Chief Min­is­ter She­hbaz Sharif from Jam­pur, aim­ing to ad­dress their deep- rooted de­pri­va­tions. He said, it was a sense of sat­is­fac­tion that She­hbaz Sharif had come up to ex­pec­ta­tions of South­ern Pun­jab, as ear­mark­ing bil­lions of ru­pee funds to up­lift the re­gion.

He said, cur­rently al­lo­ca­tion of Rs 5 bil­lion for de­vel­op­ment of Jam­pur Model City would re­solve earnest prob­lems of the city. He said, a new de­vel­oped Jam­pur city would emerge after thor-oughly spend­ing of de­vel­op­ment funds over the city.

Other so­cial and po­lit­i­cal per­son­al­i­ties in­clud­ing Nadeem Ahmad Shah, She­hzada Ha­mayon Mughal, Sai­ful­lah, Mo­ham­mad Hus­sain Fa­reedi were also present. Pe­shawar: Cen­tral Pres­i­dent of Awami Na­tional Party (ANP) As­fand­yar Wali Khan has said that he has never seen Im­ran Khan like non-po­lit­i­cal per­son through­out his po­lit­i­cal ca­reer span­ning over three decades.

Ad­dress­ing party work­ers con­ven­tion here on Fri­day, he said that the ANP would ac­cept the PTI man­date in Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa, if Im­ran Khan ac­cepts the PML- N’s man­date in Pun­jab and the Cen­tre. He said that the ANP al­ways sup­ported democ­racy in the coun­try and would con­tinue strug­gle for strength­en­ing it in the coun­try.

The ANP leader said the PTI Chief should bet­ter study coun­try’s his­tory first adding Im­ran Khan is master of U-turn as he first ac-cused ju­di­ciary for rig­ging in the gen­eral elec­tion and now he moved the same ju­di­ciary for seek­ing re­lief. The ANP leader re­it­er­ated his party’s strong op­po­si­tion to con­struc­tion of Kal­abagh dam.

He main­tained that cer­tain el­e­ments in the coun­try were mak­ing mis­lead­ing state­ments about the 18th amend­ment, and warned, if any one tried to tam­per the 18th amend­ment or the con­sti­tu­tion then this coun­try would have five con­sti­tu­tions.

The ANP leader there was no one in the en­tire prov­ince to take care of the IDPs of Waziris­tan, es­pe­cially the women. The IDPs queued to beg­ging while Im­ran Khan has no in­ten­tion to dis­em­bark from the con­tainer. He ap­pealed to the Pukhtoon lead­ers to get united for re­solv­ing the prob­lems of the peo­ple of Waziris­tan.

Provin­cial pres­i­dent of ANP, Haider Khan Hoti on this oc­ca­sion said that PTI could not solve prob­lems of the Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa. He said that Im­ran Khan wanted power in Is­lam­abad and has no in­ter­est at all in KPK. Cen­tral Sec­re­tary Gen­eral ANP Mian Iftikhar Hus­sain in his ad­dress re­counted sac­ri­fices of his party for the cause of Puk­thoon na­tion. —APP
