MULTAN: Newly-appointed vice chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI), Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that boycotting the Bonn conference was the most sensitive and difficult decision taken by the government.
He also claimed that the decision “was not taken by the Prime Minister.”
Addressing the Hussainia conference in Multan, Qureshi said that the people of Pakistan should stand against the “Yazeeds” of the present time, who are “sitting in power corridors” today.
Qureshi also said that the decision to boycott the Bonn conference will affect Pakistan’s diplomatic relations.
Talking about the Nato attacks, he said that the government was never interested in resolving this issue.
“The Prime Minister is busy securing a place for his son in politics and is conspiring against me in NA 148,” Qureshi said.
Pointing out the sensitivity of the Nato issue, Qureshi said that Pakistan has to “move very carefully now as the future will be more difficult.”
Qureshi also said that the present rulers are just trying to extend their stay in power and that they are not concerned with the people of Pakistan and their problems.
“Pakistanis have to now decide about their future. If they want a bleak future, they can remain silent but a bright future only lay in standing up against this government,” Qureshi said.
Talking about the PTI politics in the region, Qureshi said that the party’s central committee will decide the future course and that he will follow the instructions, with mutual cooperation.
Homage to Karbala martyrs
Paying tribute to the mission of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and his companions, Qureshi said that their actions had clearly set an example for everyone to follow.
“Their message is of peace and love without any discrimination,” said the PTI vice chairman.
