Wattoo compliments Nisar, Aitzaz for burying hatchet


Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP ) Punjab President Manzoor Wattoo has complimented Senator Atizaz Ehsan and Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan for burying the hatchet and moving forward for the sake of creating an enabling political environment in the country conducive to constitution, rule of law and democracy.

In a statement issued on Sunday, he said the agitating parties and the government should take a leaf from the recent scuffling between Aitzaz Ahsan and Nisar Ali Khan and put cold water on their ego in the interest of constitution, democracy and rule of law.

He observed that there was no end to fighting, adding that the sanity demands that it should come to an end sooner to cut the losses to the political system and indeed to the nation that was on the hook. In this case, the Constitution and democracy are at stake and their preservation is the worthwhile cause as compare to digging the heels, he argued.

In politics and especially in democracy juggernauting is quintessentially self-defeating because of its exclusiveness and its undertakers would be definite victim at the end of the day because its prognosis could not be otherwise.

Wattoo said that the present crisis was also the test of the agitating parties and the government to prove their democratic credentials, adding that the people of the country were watching them to formulate their experienced- based opinion about them.

The overwhelming silent majority will express their opprobrium in the shape of inflicting embarrassing electoral debacle on them if they fail to prove their worth as the true believers in democratic dispensation, he opined. The societal electoral setback will be the inevitable fate of those who care less for the aspirations of the people reflected in the constitution, he argued.
