PML-N responsible for instigating protests: Fauzia Wahab

PPP leader says PML-N not serving the masses by provoking the people.


Express October 04, 2011

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Fauzia Wahab said on Tuesday that Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) was responsible for instigating violence in cities across Punjab, following their announcement to support protests against loadshedding.

Speaking to the media outside Parliament House in Islamabad, Wahab said that the PML-N was not serving the masses by provoking the people and spreading violence.

“I want to ask the people of Punjab, have they served the masses through the destruction of the country’s assets?” said the PPP leader.

Earlier, PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif had directed the party to support street protests against prolonged loadshedding and disruption of power.

Fueled by continued power outages, mayhem spread across the country, with infuriated demonstrators attacking buildings, policemen and passing vehicles for a second consecutive day.

The hardest hit by the rioting were Punjab’s urban centres – where there were scores injured and arrested.

Mian Nawaz Sharif and his brother are suffering from political isolation. They are rapidly losing the minimum left torn popularity and thus getting hysteric. The recent decision to support protest against Government seems hilarious. PML-N is in catch -22 positions and has no chances to come in power again. One thing that is important is that PML-N would not go for protest Dharna when hundreds of Shias are killed, to get the facts out on OBL’s presence in Kakul, Mehran Base, Karachi killings, Baloch killings, etc. However, to avoid March 2012 senate elections they would go to any extent even to torpedo the new democracy. Being a regional party, PML-N does not have any chance in the senate elections and their best bet is to come to power via backdoor or SC’s help.
