LAHORE: Continuing his diatribe against the government, Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari alleged on Friday that it had turned the National Action Plan (NAP) against terrorism into a ‘Noon League (PML-N) plan’, while Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khurshid Shah insinuated that the rulers had links with terrorists.
Chiding the government for not fully implementing the NAP approved in an all parties conference (APC), Mr Bhutto-Zardari said at a party workers’ convention that its partial execution had converted it into a ‘Noon League action plan’. “You will have to admit that you’ve failed,” he said.
He said on one hand children of the Army Public School in Peshawar had sacrificed their lives, on the other “these so-called self-esteemed and brave people of Raiwind and Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar are not ready to fight or even talk against these terrorists”. He said the rulers would get terrified “even when we fight against the terrorists”.
The PPP leader said as he had got fed up with this attitude he was raising the slogan of “go Nisar, go”.
The PPP chief said not only the people of areas continuously bearing the cost of terrorism but those of Punjab also shared his feelings on the issue.
“The slogan is not being raised in Balochistan or Khyber Pakhtunkhwa or Waziristan but in Lahore,” he said, while leading the participants in shouting slogans calling for the removal of Chaudhry Nisar.
He recalled that the APC had also unanimously demanded forming of a parliamentary national security committee for accountability of the interior ministry but the demand had not been accepted.
He warned that the slogan would be converted into “go Nawaz, go” if the demand was not accepted by Dec 27.
Talking to reporters at a breakfast meeting hosted by local PPP leader Azizur Rehman Chan, Syed Khurshid Shah said that for the rulers there was no banned organisation.
He alleged that the rulers were with the banned groups from day one as they had reached the corridors of power with the vote bank of these organisations. He claimed that local people had told him during his recent visit to Jhang that a known leader of a banned group had relations with the PML-N and also used to fund the party.
