VEHARI: Calling Mansoor Ijaz Pakistan’s enemy, Punjab Governor Sardar Latif Khosa said on Friday that there was evidence of Ijaz lobbying along with “Jews and others” against the country.

“He [Ijaz] has been still encouraged to degrade our government,” Khosa said.

Commenting on the memogate scandal, the Punjab Governor said one cannot name the President, Army and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chiefs in a petition but they all accepted it because the petition was filed by Nawaz Sharif.

Khosa was speaking in Vehari during his visit to Zahid Doltana, condoling the death of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) MNA and parliamentary secretary for defence Azeem Daultana. Praising Azeem, Khosa said the late PPP member was a follower of Bhuttoism and a great asset of the party.

Khosa also held Nawaz Sharif responsible for the uncertain state of Pakistan. “The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) was nothing but a small procession of few people protesting on national highway,” he added.

He said that the party was a complete failure and it will soon perish. “The party has always promoted the politics of conflict and have always tried to take advantage of difficult situations,” Khosa said.

Talking about the removal of defence secretary, the Punjab Governor said the action is not a violation of any law or the constitution.

“All those who want to use this issue for their own gain, will lose in the end and will get nothing,” Khosa said.

Khosa assured that the PPP will not cause any conflict between the institutions.

“The current government will complete its five years according to the constitution of Pakistan and the Prime Minister never spoke anything wrong and unconstitutional,” he added.

The governor further stated that Husain Haqqani was dismissed by the PM after consultation with the civilian and military leadership, because his opinions were not considered satisfactory.

Mansoor Ijaz whether reliable or not, is no more the issue. Memogate is a fact now and the SC Judicial Commission is gathering the evidence. Let the process complete and every thing will be clear as to who is and is not guilty.

The foreign double agent who has admitted having close relationship with a dozen or so secret agencies of the world has suddenly become a Pakistani hero. Mansoor has been writing and talking against Pakistan for many years on all mediums of communiction. He has been against the army and ISI and demanded it be banned as a terrorist organization. The army, ISI and its supporters did not condemn Mansoor on those venonm. In addition Mansoor admitted writing and delivering unsigned memo to his country's general against Pakistani army and ISI. They is no dispute on that point and Mansoor has admitted it. The question is how all of a sudden the main character of the "crim" becomes a star witness and a Pakistani hero? Why are all his other writings against army and ISI ignored at this time? Should all such writers be encouraged to do that against Pakistan? The paid and unelected govt servants should not think in personal terms that my enemy's (govt) enemy is our friend.
