Govt still has time to meet opposition demands, says Kaira
MULTAN: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Qamar-uz-Zaman Kaira has said that the government still has time to accept the demands of the opposition parties.
Speaking to media in Multan, Kaira said that that the four demands forwarded by PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari should be accepted.
The PPP leader said that the party will announce a long march against the federal government on 27th December if their demands not met by the government.
It should be noted that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, in his Salam-e-Shuhada Rally in Karachi, had laid down four demands to the federal government.
“The federal government should accept our four demands for the sake of integrity of national unity. Appoint a foreign minister on immediate basis, Panama Bill tabled by PPP in Senate should be approved, the suggestions of former president Asif Ali Zardari on China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) presented in All Parties Conference be accepted and the national security committee of parliamentarians should be reconstituted,” Bilawal had said. The PPP chairman had warned the federal government that a long march will be held if their demands were not accepted.
PPP Punjab leader said prime minister tried to clarify his position in Parliament and rallies. He added that his clarifications get him into more trouble.
He further said that the accountability process should start with the investigation of the Panama Papers.
Kaira stated that the PPP wants the judicial system to be empowered. “We are not saying that the authority of investigating Panama Leaks should be given to us,” he added.
Kaira went on to say that that terrorism has affected PPP the most. He said that the party is standing like a wall against terrorism.
He said that People’s Party has all opposition parties on board. “PPP does not believe in the politics of shutting cities down,” he added.
