PPP Needs To Re-evaluate It’s Policies

By Aziz Narejo

Zardari may return, with broken wings, powerless & as a mere figurehead like Fazal Elahi Chaudhry or Rafiq Tarar; he may even resign as party co-chairperson or become inactive in that position & let Bilawal become more active. But will that be a solution to the problems Pakistan or PPP face? I don’t think so. Much more needs to be done. Some heads have to roll & some basic re-evaluation of PPP policies have to take place. People like Faryal, Babar, Rehman and many more must go. People like Aitzaz & Rabbani should be brought in. Corruption, nepotism must be checked.

Most important is to go back to Benazir Bhutto’s policies and stand since her meeting with MNS in Jeddah & later signing of CoD in London, UK. Their written & unwritten agreements must be followed. PPP must change its attitude towards judiciary. It should distance itself from pro-Musharraf parties & try to work with PML-N. It is the need of the hour that PPP & PML-N join hands at this moment to foil the conspiracies hatched by anti-democracy forces. ….

ISLAMABAD, Dec 9: President Rafiq Tarar has pardoned former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s 25-year jail sentence but exiled the former prime minister and his family, a government announcement said in the wee hours of Sunday.

“On the advice of the chief executive, the president of Pakistan, according to law has pardoned Nawaz Sharif’s remaining jail sentence while the rest of the punishment awarded by the honourable courts, which includes fine, forfeiture of property and disqualification from public office would remain in place,” the announcement said.

“Nawaz Sharif and family have been exiled to Saudi Arabia. This decision has been taken in the best interest of the country and the people of Pakistan,” it said.

The former prime minister was awarded 14 years’ imprisonment on corruption charges, fined Rs20 million and disqualified from contesting election for 21 years. Mr Sharif, who was removed by the army in a bloodless coup, was sentenced to life imprisonment on charges of hijacking the plane in which General Pervez Musharraf was travelling.

APPOINTMENT OF CHAIRMAN NAB

by Dr Ali Akbar Dhakan, Shanti Nagar, Dalmia- Karachi

Mr Nawaz Shareef as a prime Minister of Pakistan selected his accountant Justice Tarar as the President of Pakistan who continued to work on the post even after dissolving Nawaz Shareef`s Government by Parvez Musharraf . Nobody opposed the appointment of Mr Tarar because of the fact he belonged to Punjab having sympathies and personal relations with the Prime Minister. Even, Mr Nawaz Shareef appointed Mr saif-ur-rahman as chairman NAB who was also his friend having family relations with  the result that he used his services to malign Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, her husband Asif Ali Zardari and all others belonging to Peoples Party and nobody took some objection against his all handmade activities. Now that the post of chairman NAB remained vacant and appointment of Justice Syed Deedar Hussain Shah has been notified  after fulfilling all the formalities, the PML (N) opposition leader Ch. Nisar ALi has  taken up the way of aggressiveness and adverse comments to raise unnecessary objections against the appointment of the retired Justice. We already victimized and neglected people of Sindh highly condemn the  negative attitude of the opposition leader. We advise Mr. Nisar  to  prove himself to be a faithful of Pakistan and should not restrict himself as the leader of Punjab only.
