Massive protests against federal govt from 31st: Nawaz Sharif

PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif Monday mentioned his party had made a decision to launch massive protests and demonstrations against federal govt from Mar 31, adding that investors, the business community and the people of Karachi were showing concern over target killings and extortion but no one was focusing.

Addressing a public gathering in Bettu Jatoi in Dadu, Nawaz mentioned he’d signed a contract along with President Zardari for the prosperity, development and progress of the country, but Zardari had used it to achieve his vested concerns in the name of democracy. He said that plundering and looting prevailed but the PPP-led govt wasn’t dealing with the basic problems of the people. He asked people to come forward against looting.

Nawaz Sharif said the govt had totally failed in uprooting target killers, extortionists as well as ethnic assault, adding that the Sindh govt has no idea to promote education while the Punjab govt provided laptop computers to students. Nawaz Sharif said that the Zardari govt had left flood and rain sufferers at the mercy of fate, but the Punjab govt came to their rescue and supplied food and shelter to them.

    While visiting Sindh recently, Mian Nawaz Sharif, in complete defiance of the Charter of Democracy, welcomed Liaquat Jatoi’s entry into his party. In addition, while addressing a public gathering in the province, Mr Sharif claimed that most political parties in Sindh reportedly maintain target killing and money extortion wings. While giving this statement he did not bother to clarify whether his own party was also involved in these activities or not. Another interesting statement that Mr Sharif made was regarding the economic conditions of the people of Sindh. He claimed that people in the province were better off prior to the present government coming into power four years ago. For a very long time, Mr Sharif has repeatedly blamed the Musharraf regime for every ill that has afflicted Pakistan for the past 12 years or so. Now, he has suddenly realised that it was better than the democratic government of Yousaf Raza Gilani. It has indeed been an interesting experience observing Mr Sharif’s political about-turns over the years. Such summersaults are not new for Nawaz Sharif, it in his nature.
