PPP warns Shahbaz against using abusive language for President


Adviser to the PM and senior PPP leader Chaudhry Aslam Gill has warned Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to avoid using abusive and derogatory language against President Asif Ali Zardari. Addressing a party workers’ meeting, he said: “PML-N has lost the support of the people of Punjab. The PPP will sweep the general elections and form its governments not only at the Centre but also in Punjab.” Aslam Gill said National Assembly Speaker Dr Fehmida Mirza has given her ruling regarding the reference against Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, keeping in view the constitution and the parliamentary traditions, but the hooliganism of the PML-N members in the parliament was tantamount to humiliating the parliament. The speaker, in her ruling, had declared that the prime minister had not ridiculed the Supreme Court, so no question of his disqualification arises and that no reference for his disqualification can be sent to the Election Commission of Pakistan.
