ISLAMABAD: Chairman Senate, Raza Rabbani on Tuesday underscored the need for putting in place a mechanism of accountability which functions without giving any regard to the ‘sacred cow’.
“All the political forces stands on one page when it comes to promotion of the cause of democracy. Any attempt to change the course of a river could trigger flooding,” he warned while talking to media persons here.
He said accountability of all and sundry must be carried out under one institution, as indiscriminate treatment nurtures trust and confidence.
Raza Rabbani regretted that he still sees no action on the government’s part over the opposition’s recommendations for putting in place an effective mechanism of accountability. “Where the Federation stands today, it is in great need of democracy and democratic institutions,” he added.
He said no matter how sluggish the government forces may be, the country has no other option available to it for a way forward.
“The river must be allowed to flow freely in the direction that it naturally does,” he added.
