‘Govt needs to do more’

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

WAHEED PHULPOTO SHIKARPUR—Ghous Bukhsh Khan Ma­har, the PML-F MNA and the for­mer fed­eral min­is­ter has al­legedly said that fed­eral as well as pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ments failed to per­form as per ex­pec­ta­tions of peo­ple. This he stated while ad­dress­ing the me­dia men and the no­ta­bles on the oc­ca­sion of an If­tar party ar­ranged by him at Wazirabad.

He added that due to bad gov­er­nance, fed­eral and the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ments were to­tally failed to ful­fil their com­mit­ments made by the lead­er­ships of the big po­lit­i­cal na­tional par­ties in­clud­ing Pak­istan Peo­ple Party [PPP] and Pak­istan Mus­lim League Nawaz [PML-N] for well be­ing of the masses and buildup the fate of the coun­try.

He said that the po­lit­i­cal lead­ers be­long­ing to PPP and PML-N were the rid­ers of same boat, who had same po­lit­i­cal in­ter­ests to en­joy the pow­ers and meet their po­lit­i­cal ends and in this re­gard they were play­ing dou­ble game on po­lit­i­cal pitch to meet their po­lit­i­cal aims in­stead of build­ing up the fate of the of the na­tion.

And thus both the twin sis­ter par­ties have dam­aged the na­tional con­fi­dence, he was of his opinion that till the corruption cul­ture was not brought un­der con­trol in the public in­sti­tu­tions, the devel­op­ment achieve­ments could never be brought in the coun­try as well as the law and or­der prob­lem fac­ing by the peo­ple also could not be brought un­der con­trol till and un­til the po­lit­i­cal in­ter­fer­ence would be dis­cour­aged in Po­lice and other law en­forc­ing agencies.

On the other hand the func­tional league lead­ers also em­pha­sized the need of deput­ing the due pow­ers to po­lice, Rangers and other law enforcement agencies as well as to em­power the lo­cal bod­ies in­sti­tu­tions with­out fur­ther de­lay in or­der to dis­charge the proper du­ties to en­sure peace and calm and to set­tle lo­cal public prob­lems at their door steps in­clud­ing the devel­op­ment achieve­ments in the ar­eas.

Re­ply­ing to a ques­tion re­gard­ing to com­ple­tion of Elec­tion Com­mis­sion of Pak­istan [ECP] Mr Ma­har said that PML-N and PPP lead­ers were not sin­cere to get the elec­tion com­mis­sion of Pak­istan com­pleted be­cause of they wanted to com­plete five years ten­ure of their gov­ern­ments aimed at in­clud­ing the po­lit­i­cal at­mos­phere in their favour be­cause the lead­er­ships of both the big na­tional po­lit­i­cal par­ties were feel­ing fear of los­ing the peo­ples sup­port in mid term gen­eral elec­tions if an­nounced be­fore the com­ple­tion of the ten­ure.

He also fa­vored the mil­i­tary spe­cial courts to be em­power for sum­mery tri­als of the cases in or­der to im­prove the law and or­der sit­u­a­tion de­te­ri­o­rated in the coun­try by law­break­ers and ter­ror­ists ac­tivists.

Talk­ing about the state­ment de­liv­ered by WAPDA chair­man in favour of the Kal­abagh dam, Mr Ma­har said that there was no need of talk­ing about the is­sue of Kal­abagh dam, when this is­sue was ended af­ter the peo­ple’s of three prov­inces have re­jected it through their As­sem­bly fo­rum.

Ear­lier, talk­ing to jour­nal­ists PML-F MPA Muham­mad Sha­har­yar Khan Ma­har con­demned the de­mand for new prov­ince by MQM and termed it as a po­lit­i­cal drama to gain the sym­pa­thies of the peo­ple and PPP lead­ers was a part of such po­lit­i­cal game to en­joy the pow­ers and other ul­te­rior mo­tives.
