|PML-N turned into petition league: Malik|
17 July 2012
BAHAWALNAGAR: Senior Advisor to the Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik on Monday said that PML-N had turned into ‘Petition League’ and fulfilled all its desires through petitions.
Addressing the public meeting after inaugurating passport office, he said that the government of Shahbaz Sharif was running on stay orders for the last four and a half years.
He said that Pakistan People’s Party believed in the ballot and not the bullet. He hoped that general election would be held on time.
Quoting the statement of Nawaz Sharif, he said that the PML-N chief had said that it would be rebellion to contest elections under the patronage of Pervez Musharraf, but still contested the elections under his (Musharraf’s) patronage.
“It is a matter of astonishment that no FIR had so far been registered against Pervez Musharraf in Punjab,” he observed.
“I salute to Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani who served the poor people and rendered valuable services in his respective area,” he added.
