Federal, Punjab govts going nowhere, says Sarwar


Says opp always give priority to personal, political interests

Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar has said that Federal and Provincial governments are not threatened by the opposition.

“The coalition parties are with the government and nothing can deter the government from completing its constitutional tenure.”

Punjab Governor Ch Sarwar was addressing a condolence reference held in the memory of senior columnist Dr Ajmal Niazi at Al-Hamra Hall Lahore and later talking to the media.

Ch Sarwar said that unprecedented atrocities are being committed against the minorities in India and innocent Kashmiris are being killed. UN and other international organizations should take notice instead of being silent spectators.

The Punjab Governor said that it is not the first time that opposition parties have announced protest against the government as opposition parties, including Maulana Fazlur Rehman, had staged long march and protest in the past, but they have not succeeded in their goal, adding that there is still no threat to the federal and Punjab government from the opposition.

He said that as far as the coalition parties are concerned, coalition parties, including the PML-Q, are with the government and no party has spoken of leaving the government.

Chaudhry Sarwar said that unfortunately the opposition parties give priority to personal and political interests instead of national and public interest.

Therefore, the opposition parties are also obstructing the electoral reforms, adding that electoral reforms are necessary for fair and transparent elections, and the opposition must also play its role.

Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar said that crime against Indian Muslims have risen, since Narandra Modi has come to power.

He said that Indian government, police and all organizations are fully supporting the terrorist organization RSS, that is targeting Muslims, adding that the terrorism being committed by the India in Kashmir is in front of everyone.

He urged the international human rights bodies including the United Nations to take stern notice of this.

Addressing the function, Chaudhry Sarwar paid tributes to the services of Dr Ajmal Niazi in the field of journalism and said that he always wrote in the interest of the nation and highlighted the problems of common man. His services in the field of journalism will always be remembered, he added.

He said that every Pakistani must play his role for the development, prosperity, peace and stability of the country. The strength of Pakistan is the strength of every Pakistani.

He said that when people from all walks of life including politics and journalism will do their jobs honestly, no power in the world will be able to stop Pakistan from moving forward.
