Don’t interfere in political matters, govt warns SC

Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira on Thursday warned that if the courts continued to interfere in political matters such as CNG pricing and the Kalabagh Dam issue, the government would also entangle them. Talking to reporters after a conference on disaster management of SAARC countries, Kaira was asked why the government was reluctant to reduce CNG prices, prompting the court to issue an order slashing gas rates. Kaira replied that such issues should be decided in the parliament instead of courts. Criticising former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt General (r) Hameed Gul, Kaira said that the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) – a nine member electoral alliance – had been formed in 1990 to prevent the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) from winning the polls.
He said the IJI had been formed as a result of the hatred against PPP’s founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, and his daughter Benazir Bhutto. He said the purpose of creating the alliance was to steal the people’s mandate through “ulterior motives”. “Hameed Gul has served the nation in the past, and whatever he is doing now is in front of the nation. He should take pity on the nation and let the elected leadership of the nation and the national institutions work,” Kaira said. “His institution should take notice of his activities during service, as he himself said that he had formed the IJI in his personal capacity; how can a serving general act in personal capacity. If his office, his home, and his institution were used in IJI’s formation, then he is answerable to the nation,” Kaira said.

  1. In Fact , LHC_Judges ; Election_Workers of NS . They are doing nothing , But , Creating Hate against Punjab in others Provinces . ” Greater_Punjab ” is the only agenda .

    • Is CNG issue not important ? SC interim order was based on details provided by govt / Ogra itself and SC based its findings on same and issued order accordingly…so, what wrong SC has done ? Only that it favored poor people ? and that is what is pinching you guys, which exposes how much these elected MPs are anxious to resolve poor people problems ? If such issues néed to be resolved by the parliament then why not do earlier instead of people approaching judiciary ?

      • @ishrat… The supreme court should then reduce the price of wheat as well to give relief to the poor masses and when they are at it, they could perhaps raise the wages of the common man making pakistan a shining example for the rest of the world!

  2. PPP leaders must give up the dictatorship behaviour towards country`s respected judiary and the nation very well know what ZAB AND HER DAUGHTER done for the destruction of the country.If PPP leaders are fond of shouting,let they do ,but not agaisnt the solidarity of Pakistan as theeir founder has done in the past,so avoid to repeat the same.Pepole are now aware the performance of PPP,but due to one super power,they are having dictation and that super power is no longer with you now.only PML Nawaz can protect the country, INSHA ALLAH PML N ZINDABAD BAQI SUB LOTABAZ.

    • Because NS are pious people, beyond any greed. Their only wish is to serve people of this country They need no money for themselves. They believe in democracy. They are lions. They are clean. They are god-fearing and ameen. Hope you agree with my comments.

  3. What the government needs to do is collect more taxes from the ones making a boat load of money and to paying their share,that also includes the President and all his political friends who pay him millions to stay under his umbrella.The government needs to do their job instead of just lip service.The people who support PPP,let me ask you,where is the economy today compared to say 4 and a half years ago???where is the reputation of Pakistan today compared to 4 and a half years ago??? what about the energy situation????

    • when analysing, pls take all factors into account. Govt did present a draft bill in NA to impose Computerized Taxation so noone can evade taxes, but Opposition and Business community including some govt allies opposed it because they thought govt can collect money thru this way which wud result in better economy and govt wud get credit in elections. So they did not let it pass.
