PML-N urged to sever ties with terrorist groups
07 March, 2013
LAHORE: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister Aslam Gill has strongly urged Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders to jettison the policy of appeasement of Punjab-based terrorist organisations as they are deeply involved in carrying out heinous activities of terrorism especially in Balochistan and Sindh provinces.
He said that it was no more a secret that the PML-N had electoral alliances with Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and other similar outfits in the past and ironically the party was still maintaining the same level of soft corner for them.
He said that the Punjab chief minister had denied the irrefutable reality of the presence of such organisations whereas a number of authentic publications had been published on the activities of Punjabi Taliban in the country. He said that terrorist activities of the Punjab-based terrorist organisations had brought a bad name to the country.
He said that collusion with such organisations amounted to working against the interests of democracy. He advised the PML-N's leadership not to follow political opportunism at the expense of democracy, life and property of the citizens of Pakistan.
Gill complimented the president of Pakistan on his statement that 'I will invite to form the government whosoever wins the maximum number of seats in the forthcoming election. I will administer the oath of the office without the slightest hesitation'.
