Nawaz sees plot to delay election

- February 08, 2013 - Updated 1230 PKT - From Web Edition

SUKKUR: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief Nawaz Sharif on Friday said ‘some forces’ were trying to delay general election through putting demands, in an obvious reference to Tahirul Qadri and PTI chief Imran Khan.


Speaking to media at the airport on his arrival, the former prime minister said that he was bracing for a ‘third’ force after Imran Khan and Qadri.


Nawaz added that consultations were underway with different political parties over the caretaker prime minister.


He blamed incumbent rulers for unrest in Karachi and lamented that the Supreme Court had to take action into Shahzeb murder after Sindh government apathy into the cold-blooded murder of the Karachi youth.


Mr Sharif also condemned out of turn promotions of 156 police officers in Sindh. Answering a question regarding lifting governor’s rule in Balochistan, he said that situation was not clear yet.


When asked about reports about President Asif Ali Zardari planning to meet him, he said he was not informed of any such visit.

The raising of questions and allegations on the state affairs is in of itself a pillar of democracy. I don't know how it is pertinent to the ,"derailment of Democracy",as time and again stressed by the present and opposition government.There is nothing to hide, right? Let them inquire he situation, Mian Sahab. Aur is mein koi shak nahi hay kay Pakistan asooli democracy apna raha,Pakistan ki tarrek aur mujuda soratehal ka moazna karein agar.

Indeed, there are plans how to keep the status que in place by either conducting taylored elections or no elections at all. Internal and external minds agree on such formula. Mr. Qadri was brought in to serve the purpose.Imran Khan has been pushed to support it or lose it.If ANP retains power in KPK,JUI-F in Balochistan,PPP in center and sindh, MQM/PML-Q get the slice of the power they expect, Then why need a change or elections for change???

Calm down M.Sharif.Zardari may have promised you to loot the country for next 5 years but keep in mind that Pakistan is not your or Zardai's jagir that you will milk the country turnwise.One hopes that pakistani public will wake up at long last.

Cleansing is necessary (and important) than continuing this vicious circus of discredited lot of corrupt politicians. They are taking it as a God given right to loot this unfortunate country.
