Chaudhry Sarwar relinquished the post of governor because he had been rendered helpless by Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif’s exclusionary style of governance, Pakistan Peoples Party leader Manzoor Wattoo said on Thursday.
He said Sarwar had always urged the government to go ahead with local bodies elections; provide education children in the province; and supply drinking water to the masses. He said Sarwar’s attempts to persuade the government had fallen on deaf ears. Wattoo said Sarwar had rightly pointed out Pakistan’s failure of diplomacy. “The US president visited India twice but did not visit Pakistan once even though the country has been America’s frontline in the War on Terror.” Sarwar was right in saying that the government had failed to sensitise the US regarding the sacrifices of Pakistanis, Wattoo said. He said the people were fed up of the government and any hope of improvement had vanished just like petrol, gas and electricity.
