PML-N fails to woo the nationalists again

Ayaz Palijo presents Marvi Memon with a nine-point agenda.

Our Correspondent May 12, 2012


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s second round of persuasion failed to win the support of nationalist leaders for their anti-Gilani movement.

Its delegation, led by Marvi Memon, met with the president of Awami Tehreek, Ayaz Latif Palijo, who presented them with a nine-point agenda as conditions for future cooperation and alliance.

They met at Palijo’s house on Friday. He is also the convener of Sindh Progressive Nationalist Alliance. Earlier in the week, the PML-N delegation also met with Jalal Mehmood Shah and Dr Qadir Magsi at their residences.

The nine-point agenda includes a categorical stance against any conspiracy to divide Sindh, de-weaponising Karachi, keeping the five districts in Karachi, transferring higher education and examination boards from the governor to the chief minister of Sindh, devising a policy on fair water distribution, jobs for the Sindhi-speaking people in the federal, provincial, private and corporate sectors and rehabilitation of the flood-hit people. Briefing the media after the meeting, Palijo said that the nationalists will support PML-N only if it agrees on the agenda. She called the agenda ‘Sindh’s agenda’ and said that her party agreed with many of the points raised by Palijo and promised to forward to the party leadership.

She said that PML-N was the only federal political party working with the nationalists to chalk out policies for Sindh. “The people of Sindh will soon get good news about a large political coalition.”
