Sanaullah blames ‘forces’ for trying to end PML-N govt: report


LAHORE: According to Punjab Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Rana Sanaullah, all political and non-political forces are working on the agenda to end the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government before the Senate elections, reported a private media outlet.

In an interview with a local daily, the law minister said what will the parties do if PML-N wins the general elections and that success of democracy will be holding of elections on time.

Elaborating on the Model Town report, he said it is non-decisive and incomplete, adding that it does not clarify as to why the clash between the police and the protesters happened. He said the Model Town report does not fix responsibility on anyone. In the last paragraph of page 73, it says that the user of the report should decide about the responsibility himself; therefore, all the parties are interpreting the report in a way that suits them, Sanaullah added.

Sanaullah said Pir Hameeduddin Sialvi had requested a party ticket for his son Qasim Sialvi but it could not be granted so he was politicking. It is a baseless claim that he has 15 resignations of parliamentarians. If he is doing this all to establish relations with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, we have no objection over his efforts but we will not let him succeed in his efforts to befool people under the guise of religion.

He said Ulema should take notice of this, adding that it was extremely wrong to use religion and people’s faith to gain political and worldly benefits. As the Constitution and the law of the country do not allow this, religious scholars should limit politics to politics only, he said.
