Govt must nominate IK, Dr Alvi in FIR for terror attack on PTV: PPP MNAs

Karachi. 28.3.2015: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) members national assembly Mir Munawwar Ali Talpur, Sher Muhammad Balalani and Ejaz Hussain Jakhrani while showing deep concern on emergence of an audio tape, which contained conversation between Pakistan Tehreek-e Insaf Chairman Imran Khan Niazi and PTI MNA Dr Arif Alvi regarding attack on Pakistan television demanded of the federal government especially the Minister for Interior Affairs Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan to nominate them in the FIR already registered under anti-terror laws. The case then should be tried in the military court.

The PPP MNAs while addressing the Minister for Interior Affairs Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan demanded of him that the justice should be done in all aspects and all should be treated equally if any crime was committed whether by a common citizen or Imran Khan Niazi.

While expressing their premonitions, they had doubted the ‘Third Umpire’ might once again meddle into the legal affair so as to save Imran Khan Niazi and if this would happen, it would be tantamount to placing the rule of justice under the disposal of the influential. Such an act would leave the biggest question mark on Pakistan’s history of law and justice and style of government. This would also leave the nation in a state of utter despondence and it won’t forgive the rulers for twisting the constitution and law of the country in their favour.

The PPP MNAs while addressing the Minister for Interior Affairs Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan once again said the Model Town Tragedy was compromised, both politically and administratively and hence the entire nation was anxiously waiting to see the outcome of PTI’s terror attack on PTV.

PPP Co Chairman condemns manhandling of farmers in Punjab

Warns of unrest in rural areas

Says PPP will stand by the farmers

Islamabad March 27, 2015: Former President Asif Ali Zardari has condemned the manhandling and arrest of farmers in Lahore protesting against rise in pesticide prices and demanded immediate release of all detained farmers and action against those responsible.

Over 250 farmers were beaten, some severely, by police and detained outside the Lahore press club on Wednesday for holding peaceful protest demonstration against increasing prices of fertilizers and pesticides and overbilling for agricultural tube wells.

“The farmers have a right to hold peaceful protest demonstration to demand justice and those who manhandled and bundled them into prison vans have transgressed authority and must be brought to book” said the former President in a statement today.

The former President deplored as ‘criminal’ the continued neglect of the agriculture sector and farmers by the present government that has led to deep sense of frustration among the farming community and steep decline of agriculture in the country.

“As a result of the government policies the farmers growing potatoes, wheat and rice have been worst affected”, he said and warned “the continued apathy towards agriculture sector would result in slump in national economy and unrest in the rural areas”.

He said that the present government was victimizing the farmers because the PPP government always supported the farming community.

The PPP support to farmers increased national wealth as well as the purchasing power of the rural people and ushering in prosperity, he said. The PPP government’s policies of increasing wheat support price and fixing tariff for tube wells at eight rupees per unit enabled the country to become self sufficient in wheat and brought prosperity to the farmers.

He said that rice growers were groaning but the present government had not yet fulfilled its promise of subsidy of five thousand rupees per maund to them and asked the government to fulfill its promise without delay.

The former President also assured the farmers throughout the country that the PPP will stand by them and raise its voice for the promotion of agriculture and welfare of the farmers.
