PML-N should apologise to nation and President

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira Tuesday said history cannot be changed by empty rhetoric and behind lame excuses. Expressing wonder ‘over’ naïve explanations by Opposition leader Ch Nisar he said it is simple and clear that PML-N leadership indulged in political dishonesty and came to power three times through conspiracy with agencies. “You people robbed the mandate of people, history has proven it and court has established it”. He advised the PML-N leadership to tender unconditional apology to the nation and co-chairperson of PPP. “Sinners instead of answering the questions are asking questions to others,” he said. He said Rafiq Tarrar, the then chief justice Lahore High Court, endorsed the steps of Ghulam Ishaq Khan and later PML-N leadership awarded Tartar by making him president of Pakistan. Kaira said it was sheer hypocrisy that PML-N leaders are accepting to SC verdict but are not ready to follow its orders of investigation by FIA. “Now they want a probe by United Nations,” he said laughingly. Giving an historical perspective he said General retired Hamid Gul laid foundation of IJI and promoted Mian brothers. “1988 and 1990 elections were manipulated by ISI and a political cell was established at the President House after the return of BB in 1986 to keep PPP away from the power corridors. The case in Supreme Court was not filed by the PPP but by Asghar Khan, he said. “PML-N was even now planning to rob people’s mandate and grab power with the help of ‘forces’ as it has been doing in the past.” “Chaudhry Nisar is asking very naive question as to what the PML-N leadership had done, the answer is simple and plain: Your party formed government as result of rigged elections,” he said. Responding to Ch Nisar’s remarks that why all guns are directed towards PML-N, Kaira said: “Because PML-N was the main beneficiary of the conspiracy as it formed governments in the Center and provinces. He said elections of 1998, 1993 and 1997 were rigged and manipulated. “It is not a minor issue; it is a major conspiracy against people’s mandate which has been exposed”. He asked Mian Shahbaz not to incite hatred among provinces and raise slogans like “Jaag Punjabi Jaag, adding a person living in a palace has no right to sing poems of Habib Jalib. “Everybody knows that General Gilani promoted Nawaz family in politics and Nawaz was spiritual son of Ziaul Haq.” He said fake organistaions like Tehreek Tahafuz -e-Pakistan, Tehreek-e-Naojawan Pakistan and Istehkam-e-Pakistan Tehreek were used for propaganda by the vested interests. To a question Qamar Zaman Kaira said Mian Nawaz Sharif issued license of Mehran Bank to Younus Habib.
