War of words: PPP urges PML-N to fight dengue

Says opposition is trying to provoke masses against govt by holding protests.


Express October 05, 2011

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, while talking to the media on Wednesday, said that he does not wish to comment on the opposition party Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N) as it was "too busy in fighting against dengue," reported Express 24/7.

Gilani said that the opposition has no agenda and it is trying to provoke the masses against the government by holding protests in the Punjab province. “The opposition is all alone... If they want a change (in the government), they should bring a vote of no confidence,” he remarked.

The PM further stated that the Pakistani nation was a courageous one and it has fought with calamities including global recession, floods and the war on terrorism, and they can also fight away dengue.

Meanwhile, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Wednesday that the PML-N is trying to divert peoples’ attention from the party's failure to overcome the dengue virus by carrying out and supporting protests in the province.

Addressing the media outside the Parliament, Malik said that in Islamabad genuine steps were taken to prevent the epidemic but in Punjab it was growing as a result of poor measures on the part of the Punjab government.

He said his government would complete its five-year tenure as the people had mandated it into power and the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) government had ensured transparency and brought every issue to the Parliament.

He added that it was high time that all the political parties made collective efforts to face challenges.
