PPP always respected judiciary: Kaira, Khursheed
LAHORE, Oct 2 (APP): Pakistan Peoples' Party (PPP) had
always respected the judiciary and accepted its decisions
with open heart, resolving that it would continue to do so
Federal Ministers Khursheed Ahmed Shah and Qamar Zaman
Kaira said this while talking to media here at Allama Iqbal
International Airport on Tuesday before appearing in Haj quota
case pending before the Lahore High Court.
Speaking on the occasion, Khursheed Shah said that PPP
consider it a responsibility to eliminate corruption and
had already clearly mentioned that no quota was allotted
from Saudi government.
"If any decision comes against the ministry in the said
case, we will appeal before the Supreme Court of pakistan
following the PPP tradition of respecting the judiciary",
Replying to a question about Southern Punjab Province,
Qamar Zaman Kaira said that Mian Nawaz Sahrif demanded for
a commission over the issue and while commission was setup,
they again assumed silence adding that no commission was
required as per the constitution of the country.
To a question about Baluchistan issue he said that PPP
has voluntarily admitted to the sins of previous governments
and sought for forgiveness from our Baloch brothers.
Terming Nawaz and Talal Bhugti meeting a welcome
development, Kaira said PPP firmly believe that all problems
faced by the country must be addressed through viable solutions.
"Issues should not be politicised at any cost for political
and personal gains", Kaira stressed.
Calling upon PML-N president Nawaz Sharif, he said the
government can withdraw Frontier Constabulary (FC) from Baluchistan
if Nawaz Sharif took responsibility for all kinds of circumstances afterwards.
He said that only 5% area is settled and 95% area was
being controlled through FC in the province.
PPP never runs for cheap popularity and point-scoring
through popular slogans like Nawaz Sharif, he stressed.
Regarding cases against journalists in Baluchistan, Kaira
said the government is looking into the matter and decision
would be taken after a thorough inquiry.
