Rabbani says he is powerless

Rabbani says he is powerless

KARACHI: The Senate Chairman, Mian Raza Rabbani, said on Sunday that he is powerless as no one is prepared to move back from his position due to big egos.

He was addressing the launching ceremony of his book ‘Invisible People’ here at the Arts Council.

Raza Rabbani said on the occasion that former military ruler Ziaul Haq banned the student unions, trade unions and coffeehouse culture to prolong his dictatorial rule and get rid of reasonable and sensible people.

On the other hand, he said the right wing groups were given absolute freedom, which promoted intolerance and violence. “We should serve and take care of the deprived and underprivileged segments of the society,” he said.

Rabbani was of the view that ‘exploitative system’ has enhanced the gap between the rich and poor. He stated that students have an important role towards nation-building as well as the progress and development of Pakistan. He also paid tribute to the people of Karachi for not losing courage despite difficult circumstances in the city.

The book launching ceremony was also attended by Federal Minister Hasil Khan Bizenjo, provincial Minister Nisar Ahmed Khuhro and other notables.

Hasil Khan Bizenjo said Raza Rabbani, while holding the high office, always thinks of the poor and the middleclass people and it seems as if he associates himself with such people. He said Raza Rabbani is a man of principles and his performance in the Senate also speaks of this. Nisar Khuhro said the Senate chairman is aware of the ills in the society and has stated his feelings in the shape of the book.

    Rabbani has to be better than excuses. When they have to deliver, they become powerless.

      I agree with your comment. It is high time to accept weakness of having no conscience & fight for the rights of the deprived section of the society & corruption in his own party.
