Pakistan Muslim League (PML) President and former Prime Minister Chaudhry Shujat Hussain and senior central leader and former Deputy Prime Minister Ch Pervaiz Elahi have stressed the formation of an independent election commission.
Talking to party leaders and workers, prominent personalities and media representatives who came to wish them Eid greetings at their residences in Lahore and Gujrat said that for holding of next rigging free, fair and transparent election in the country, the rulers should not be allowed to constitute election commission of their own choice.
They said that instead of collecting funds in the name of welfare work through DCOs and DOPs, the Punjab rulers should set the government hospitals right where patients do not get free medicines and tests facilities like our tenure and rather they have to run around there worriedly.
The PML leaders further said that the government is resorting to every tactic to get rid of Panama Leaks and the parliamentary committee is not being allowed to reach any conclusion, but after Eid entire attention of the opposition will be on Panama Leaks.
They said that unity and consensus against enemies of Islam and Pakistan is the greatest need of the time, suicide blasts and terrorist activities in Saudi Arabia demand attention and joint measures by entire Muslim Ummah.
They said that how much the rulers of Pakistan are interested in the problems of the people and concerned about welfare of those offering sacrifices for Pakistan and serving the nation can well be judged from enemies like treatment with elderly pensioners on Eid.
Chaudhry Shujat Hussain, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, Ch Wajahat Hussain and other family members offered Eid prayers along with party leaders, office-bearers, representatives of all spheres of life and thousands of the faithful workers of party in Gujrat. After Eid prayers, large number of people exchanged greetings and embraced the PML leaders warmly.
They also visited Bhattian graveyard where they placed wreaths and offered fateha on the graves of Ch Zahoor Elahi, Ch Manzoor Elahi and other departed souls of the family.
