PML-F mocks PPP’s Garhi Khuda Bukhsh show

Rejecting a two-party consultation process for nominating and swearing in of a caretaker setup in the country, the Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) on Sunday termed the PPP’s December 27 Gadi Khuda Bukhsh public rally as a gathering of pilgrims.
PML-F Sindh secretary general Imtiaz Shaikh talking to reporters at his residence said that “pilgrims’ not political workers gather at shrines. If the PPP wants to hold a political gathering, it should be in Hyderabad.”He said that the PPP December 27 ‘show’ was spiritual and not political in nature. He said that “while our gathering was attended by our supporters from Sindh only, theirs (PPP’s) was attended by the people from across the country. It has proved that ours was historic”. Welcoming Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s entry into politics, he reminded the young PPP chairman for not having talked about the people of Sindh in his maiden speech even once. “The issues like good governance and local government ordinance are sensitive enough and Bilawal should have had touched upon them on December 27. According to Shaikh, the PML-F chief, Sibghatullah Shah Rashdi, commonly known as Pir Pagara, would soon public PML-F’s nominee for the post of caretaker chief minister for Sindh. Rejecting the impression that his party stalwart Senator Muzaffar Hussain Shah was being installed as Sindh Governor, Shaikh warned the PPP-led government against swearing in a caretaker setup on the basis of two-party consultation only. He said that all political parties must be taken onboard for formulating an interim set up led by an impartial prime minister. He demanded of the government to announce the election date immediately.
The PML-F leader also warned the rulers against delaying the general election clarifying that Pir Pagara had been contacted indirectly but not directly regarding the caretaker setup. Accusing the PPP for the death of over 150 children due to measles, Shaikh appealed to the chief justice of Pakistan to take suo moto notice of the tragic deaths. He said that Pir Pagara on Monday would dispatch the party’s doctor forum teams for the treatment of affected children in worst affected areas of Sindh. Condemning the statement of Sindh Law Minister Ayaz Soomro about Pir Pagara, the PML-F leader said that Pir Pagara would keep leading street protests across Sindh unless such “traitors” were there to the disadvantage of Sindh province. He also demanded of Sindh Assembly Speaker Nisar Khuhro to immediately notify the appointment of the leader of the opposition in the provincial legislature.
Meanwhile Muhammad Tariq Bugti and Usman Shah, pledged loyalties to PML-F on Sunday.
