Pun­jab government sur­vived due to Mushar­raf's sup­port: Kaira

The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

Former fed­eral in­for­ma­tion min­is­ter and PPP leader, Qa­mar-uz-Zaman Kaira has said that Pun­jab government sur­vived due to sup­port of as­so­ci­ates of former Pres­i­dent Mushar­raf.

Dur­ing his talks with a pri­vate TV chan­nel, he quoted op­po­si­tion leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan's state­ment that as­so­ci­ates of former Pres­i­dent Pervez Mushar­raf were also sup­port­ing PML-N: "did this im­ply that Pun­jab government sur­vived with Mushar­raf's sup­port?" he quizzed.

He also ex­pressed strong reser­va­tions over im­par­tial­ity of Jus­tice (Retd) Nasir As­lam Zahid, who had been nom­i­nated by PML-N for the post of care­taker Prime Min­is­ter; since the killing of Nasir's brother-in­law had been blamed on Pres­i­dent Zar­dari. "If Nasir As­lam Zahid is to be made a Prime Min­is­ter, PML-N might as well sup­port his success in gen­eral elec­tions", he de­mand- ed. " While an­other PML-N nom­i­nee for care­taker Prime Min­is­ter, Ra­sool Bakhsh Palejo's son Ayaz Latif Palejo was PPP's bit­ter ri­val in Sindh", he said, (also) re­ject­ing Ra­sool Bakhsh Palejo's nom­i­na­tion by PML-N.
