Zardari puts weight behind PAT's demand of CM Shahbaz's resignation

Pakistan       by Mahmood Idrees | Published

The meeting between two political leaders come at a time when Qadri is mulling to stage a protest to press the government for resignation of Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah and provincial Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif after release of Model Town inquiry report.

Taking his turn, Asif Ali Zardari said, "Enough is enough, Nawaz Sharif's brother Shehbaz must resign".

On the other hand, Tahirul Qadri stated that murderers and those who planned the massacre have been exposed in the Justice Baqir Najfi commission report. "After this report, he stands condemned and a condemned man can not remain the CM of the largest province of Pakistan".

While confirming the meeting, opposition leader in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah said that the PPP leader is visiting the Minhajul Quran Secretariat on the invitation of Dr Tahirul Qadri. Indeed Model Town tragedy was a regrettable incident and the inquiry report on it is equally disappointing but still we understand the PAT chief should rather pursue the legal course instead of agitation as in the recent past the protests by a religious party both in Lahore and Islamabad have already greatly harmed the country. "Now we will fight and take to the streets with him [Tahirul Qadri]".

Health officials: Time to get your flu shot
Such infections can dramatically increase the risk of heart attack and stroke for months after the illness has cleared. Skiest said people can avoid numerous complications associated with the virus by getting the shot.

Earlier, in a telephonic conversation with Qadri, Asif Zardari said that PPP is with PAT as the martyrs should get justice at all costs.

He repeated before the media the important points of the Model Town report in which the tribunal pointed fingers at Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah and Shahbaz Sharif.

Though it was a positive act on the part of Punjab government to make public the report in pursuance of the high court's order but by and large the report spanning over one hundred and thirty pages is incomplete, inconclusive and leaves many questions unanswered.
