Pakistan Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique has urged United Nations, human rights organizations and civilised nations to take notice of unprovoked Indian shelling on Pakistani villages. In a statement issued here on Saturday, he said the Indian government was a big ‘exporter and supporter’ of terrorism in and out of India. ‘Un-guided Indian forces are a regular part of all nature of state and non-state terrorism,’ he added.
He said that martyrdom of six innocent Pakistanis by the firing of Indian forces on working boundary was an example of cruelty and brutality. The minister said that Pakistan Peoples Party opposed the idealogy and struggle of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed by supporting the amendment made with malafide intention. The condition for party leadership was included in the Constitution by Musharraf to create hurdle for BB Shaheed and Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, he added. Earlier, Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique said the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N), had expressed desire about Nawaz Sharif to lead the party as its President. The Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Tehrik e Insaf did not vote against the bill presented in the Assembly for amendment, he said while talking to a private news channel. After the amendment, Nawaz Sharif could lead the PML-N as party President, he said.
This amendment would also help benefit the leaders of the other political parties, he said. Hindrance was made for Nawaz Sharif to complete the constitutional tenures as elected prime minister, he said. The PML-N wanted to continue work for supremacy of constitution, law and the parliament, he said.—APP
