PPP flays derogatory language against Zardari
Published: November 03, 2011

LAHORE - The PPP’s Punjab Executive Council (PEC), which met here on
Wednesday, with party’s Punjab President Imtiaz Safdar Warraich in the
chair, passed a resolution condemning Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz
Sharif for using derogatory language against President Asif Ali

“No body can dare hang the president upside down”, said the resolution
while declaring chief minister’s statement a conspiracy against
democracy. It also warned that PPP’s policy of reconciliation should
not be taken as its weakness. Later, while briefing reporters about
proceedings of the meeting, Safdar Warraich said that PEC discussed
the fast changing political scenario in Punjab in the context of
massive show put up PTI and the one staged by PML-N in Lahore.

He said that PEC was unanimous on the point that PTI’s impressive show
at Minar-e-Pakistan was actually an expression of the hatred people
had developed against wrong policies of PML-N. “After Imran’s rally,
the PML-N is no longer a party of the G T Road”, he observed, adding
that Nawaz party was trying to create an atmosphere of confrontation
sometimes under the pretext of protest against loadshedding, and at
times holding rallies with the underlying objective of harming

Safdar, however, affirmed that his party would not revert to the
politics of confrontation and stick to the policy of reconciliation
despite provocations from the opponents. He predicted that PML-N’s
scheduled rally at Faisalabad would prove to be a failure as people
had already given their decision against its policies by turning up in
PTI’s rally in large number. “Teachers, students, lady health workers
and dengue-stricken people are highly disappointed with Punjab
government”, he remarked.

Turning to the chief minister Punjab, the PPP leader said: “Mr Shahbaz
Sharif while reciting Habib Jalib’s poem, forgets the very fact that
he (late Jalib) had written these lines against the Martial Law of
dictator Zia-ul-Haq, and he (chief minister) had then supported the
dictator by mobilising people to vote in favour his referendum.
