Political Game for control of Punjab being played to deprive 180 million Pakistanis to experience good governess – read it all in ‘ and It is time to Enforce Law and Order in Pakistan either by the Military or by the Enforcement Agencies.

Sharifs didn’t resign over charges: Tasser

Why should PPP Allegations against CJP have not prompted resignations

Democracy will not sustain if institutions ‘interfere’ with each other’s work LAHORE: Nobody from the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) will resign over mere allegations, as no case has yet been proven in court, said Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer on Sunday, and pointed that while allegations have also been levelled against Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif, they have not stepped down.

“Allegations have been levelled against leaders of the PML-N and other political parties, their cases are pending in courts ... why are no decisions being announced in their cases?”

Asked Taseer while addressing the media in Lahore. He said Nawaz came to power with cases pending against him, while Shahbaz Sharif was also governing Punjab “in the same manner”. The Punjab governor said that democracy and the system could never sustain if “interference in each other’s work continues”. He said the PPP had worked hard to strengthen democracy in the country, but institutions’ interference in each other’s work would weaken democracy. “Allegations will keep surfacing, but the government will continue its work,” he said, and questioned if he should listen to some TV programme anchors and step down or work for the masses.

He said nobody could force anybody to resign. According to the APP news agency, the governor said the PPP would remain in the government and face the charges against the party in court. Replying to a question, he said the media did not have the mandate to decide who should resign, and it should only play the role of a “watchdog”. Taseer said the PPP came to power with the mandate of the masses. “I have asked President Zardari to stay in the Presidency until 2018.” He said that the president, the prime minister, the Senate chairman and the National Assembly speaker had been elected with a two-thirds majority, which “shows the support of the masses for the PPP”. He also questioned why justice was only for those who remained imprisoned for years.

He said justice should be for the 160 million people of Pakistan and must not be limited only to the PPP. He said PPP would serve the people who elected it. Replying to a question, he said the PPP had made great sacrifices for democracy, and it was for the masses to decide about the fate of elected representative after every five years. “The PPP will go back to the voters after five years,” he said. staff report
