LAHORE - Renewing his partys commitment to effect reconciliation with PML-N, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Thursday said that the government would move a bill in the National Assembly to undo the 17th amendment, making Charter of Democracy (CoD) as the basis of all desired changes in the Constitution. Talking to media on his arrival at Lahore airport on Thursday afternoon, Gilani said that National Assembly in its upcoming session on April 9, would adopt a resolution enabling the Speaker to constitute a multi-party committee that would recommend changes in the Constitution in the light of CoD. He was accompanied by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Governor Salman Taseer, Senior Minister Raja Riaz, Azma Zahid Bukhari, Azizur Rehman Chan, Munir Ahmad Khan, Zekria Butt and a good number of PPP legislators who also received him at the airport. Gilani told reporters that Speaker had already started contacting heads of parliamentary parties in the National Assembly to seek names of their nominees to be taken in the said committee. The PM expressed the hope that all political forces would join hands to uphold supremacy of the Parliament. Stressing the need for national reconciliation, the Prime Minister said that country was facing numerous problems, which could only be tackled in an environment of political and economic stability. He said the desired political harmony would enable all political parties to divert their attention towards real issues facing the people. He identified price-hike, unemployment, poverty, terrorism, bribery and injustice as the main problems facing the country at the moment. He said PPP Government wanted to move forward the agenda of reconciliation, making the CoD, a document signed by Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and PML-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif its basis. He said national reconciliation was a part of PPP manifesto, and Shaheed BB also wanted the two mainstream parties to work together for national development. He expressed his optimism that PPP and PML-N will join hands in the spirit of reconciliation, as they did not want undemocratic forces to get the benefit of mutual strife. We will not let down the masses, and respect their mandate. Peoples welfare would now be the focus of two parties, he maintained. Gilani said that in their meeting on Wednesday, Shahbaz Sharif had expressed his desire that PPP should continue to be part of coalition Government in Punjab, but I have told him that party would take a decision in this regard after return of President Asif Ali Zardari from abroad. To a question about PPP strategy in Punjab in case PML-N does not rejoin the federal cabinet, PM Gilani said that latters becoming part of federal government and formers remaining part of Punjab government were two distinct issues, and his party would prefer to deal with them separately. In Punjab, he said, a coalition government has been restored, and it is the PPP which has to take a decision whether to remain part of it or sit in the Opposition. In the Centre, he added, the situation is different; and the decision has to be taken by the PML-N. But whatever is the decision of the two parties, we will continue to respect each others mandate in the Centre and in Punjab, he said in categorical terms. When asked about the hostile relationship between Governor Salmaan Taseer and Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in the context of reconciliation between the two parties, the PM confined himself only to saying that, I have just seen the two while sitting in the aeroplane and shaking hands with each other. By saying so, the PM gave the impression as if everything was all right with regard to the relationship between the governor and the chief minister. The Prime Minister congratulated media over restoration of deposed judges and Punjab government, while lauding the positive role it had played in both issues. Media took a bold stand on all issues including restoration of judiciary and it should also take a similar stance over the issue of terrorism, he asked. To a question about countering terrorism, Gilani said government was pursuing a three-pronged strategy to address the issue. We are holding dialogue with peace loving elements, undertaking socio-economic development in the troubled region and following a policy of maintaining deterrence against the miscreants, he explained. Yousuf Raza said majority of people in FATA was in favour of Pakistan and they had always supported the Government. Responding to a query about the competence of security agencies, he said countrys intelligence apparatus was highly organised, and now we want our intelligence agencies to pre-empt the horrible incidents. I would request the four provincial governments to enhance their vigilance in the wake of recent terrorist attacks, he averred, while deploring Manawan incident in Lahore.
