Talking to media after meeting Asif Ali Zardari, Siraj ul Haq said that today the PPP chief visited Mansoora along with other party leaders and held an hour long meeting here to discuss the political crisis in the country.
He told that both the sides held detailed exchange of views on how the political temperature could be reduced.
The JI chief expressed his pleasure that all the political parties are united for saving democracy and the constitution. He said the entire country especially Islamabad is affected due to protest sit-ins; JI wants a peaceful solution to the crisis. He said both the parties should come out of it with dignity.
Siraj said Asif Ali Zardari praised the efforts of JI as an arbitrator and extended full support by his party. “The PPP chief told that a four-member committee comprising of Khursheed Shah, Rehman Malik, Aitzaz Ahsan and Raza Rabbani, will remain in touch with JI for consultation on the political deadlock” he added.
The JI chief said, “We have also formed a committee headed by Liaquat Baloch, which will meet the Speaker of the National Assembly and will request him not to accept the resignations of PTI members, while the PTI should also review its stance”.
He said, “It is also a positive sign that the establishment, unlike the past, has kept it aside from the current political crisis, while the Supreme Court (SC) has also not interfered in it”.
Siraj ul Haq said the current deadlock and the crisis originating from it, has diverted the attention of the centre, provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and media from the issues of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) of North Waziristan.
He added that the IDPs have serious reservations and are of the view that the federal and the provincial governments have entirely neglected them and are busy in the political confrontation with each other.
The JI chief said we have enough pressure by the IDPs, who are away from their homes bearing all sorts of hardships, for the sake of this country, but the stake holders have ignored those ten lac masses.
