LAHORE – Punjab governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar on Monday said there was no difference between the government and its ally Pakistan Muslim League – Quaid-e-Azam (PML-Q) and would support the government for a period of five years.
Speaking with media people at Allama Iqbal’s mausoleum here, he said the PML-Q was a time-tested ally of the government and both sides were on the same page.
“The government has nothing to do with the arrest of the opposition leader,” he replied, adding that the government does not believe in political victimization.
Against another question, he said all other political parties including PML-N and PPP are facing cases in court today.
All of these people have made a case against each other. The PTI government has not filed a lawsuit against anyone, he added. “People have rejected the rhetoric of the opposition. There will be no elections before 2023.
If the opposition wants talks to end accountability, then there is no such question. All institutions, including NAB, work with complete independence, ”he replied.
Responding to questions, Sarwar said the opposition wanted an end to the PTI rule and the accountability process at home, adding that neither would happen.
He said the government was ready to sit down with opposition parties on issues of national interest, but there would be no compromise in fighting corruption.
Responding to another question, the governor of Punjab said that the decision on who should come to power can only be taken with the power of the people’s votes, so that the opposition parties have to wait for general elections rather than holding rallies.
The governor of Punjab said if any PML-N members were arrested by the police, it was the police’s responsibility to ensure law and order and were free to take action. He said the government would not interfere in police matters in any way, adding that, under Prime Minister Imran Khan’s leadership, the rule of law was the government’s first priority.
Sarwar said with the election of US President Joe Biden, peace will flourish in the world while the US President will bring the world together to solve problems like Kashmir and Palestine and they will do what is necessary to bring peace to the world.
Sarwar said, “Under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, we want to create a Pakistan where law is equal for all and the poor can be guaranteed the provision of health and other facilities including education.”
He said towering personalities like Allama Dr Muhammad Iqbal were born after centuries, adding that Allama Iqbal united Indian Muslims with his poetry and thought-provoking philosophy. He said, “We need to follow the thinking of Eastern poets to regain our lost glory in the world.”
