#PMLN leadership to rid country of crises: Saad

Monday, November 25, 2013 - Karachi—The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) had not deviated its directions towards the resolution of key national issues but after taking up the government amid terrible crises, the PML-N had acquired the responsibility to run the state sanely and not only as just a political party so it was a mater of safeguarding the interests of the state. The PML-N leadership was fully determined to rid the country of the crises and challenges and put the country on the path of progress and enlightenment and hence a little time was sought to put the things in order.

The Minister said that it was the constitutional privilege of the federal government to appoint its own Governor in Sindh but the government had sacrificed that constitutional privilege for the sake of the state and the people of the metropolis. As a political party, the PMLN could have changed the Sindh Governor but as the party in federal government, some decisions are deferred for people’s betterment and above all for the interest of the country in the long run of state’s affairs.

The metropolis had been ruled by the TT (pistols) while the PMLN office-bearers and workers had stood to the challenges like man and kept the PMLN’s colours hoisted for which they deserved due applause. Te PMLN was fully aware of the problems of the people of the city and the PMLN workers and office-bearers and that the PMLN would utilize all the available resources to put thing in order, said Khawaja Saad Rafique.

Khawaja Saad Rafique, the Minister for Railways expressed these views while addressing a press conference he had addressed at the PMLN provincial headquarters at Karsaz, Karachi Sunday. PMLN Sindh chapter General secretary Saleem Zia Awan advocate, Information Secretary Ali Akbar Gujjar, Nehal Hashmi, Arif Kiyani, Azhar Sayani, Saeedullah Afridi, Michael Jawaid, Karamat Chohan, Malik Riyaz, Zahid Shah Mir, Nisar Shah, Aman Afridi, Malik Taj, Sultan Bahadur and Asif Khan were present with the Minister.

The Minister said that the PMLN hated the drone attacks and Pakistan Tehreek-e Insaf chairman Imran Khan and those that had taken to streets were in fact assisting the government on that serious national issue.

He said that the credit went to the PMLN-led federal government for bringing the military dictator under court trial for his constitutional violence and offences and it was then the responsibility of the judiciary to say its words and deeds.

As far as the issue of Karachi Circular railways was concerned, the Minister said that he wanted that the KCR project should be commenced, completed and run with indigenous resources; however, it would depend upon circumstances ahead and then the government would take appropriate decisions while keeping the national interests abreast.
