ISLAMABAD Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has started putting pressure on Pakistan People's Party ministers in Punjab Cabinet to quit the government and in a recent move the Punjab Government has practically breached the agreement of 40-60 per cent power-sharing formula with PPP at all levels of governance by keeping them out in the committees formed at district and tehsil level. Sources in the PML-N informed TheNation that the process of formation of committees, comprising political leaders and workers, to become part of governance at District and Tehsil level was complete and not even a single PPP leader or activist was inducted. The Punjab Government would announce these committees shortly, the sources further informed. Under the 40-60 power sharing formula agreed between the PML-N and the PPP at the time of forming the coalition government was to apply at all levels of governance including the political committees to be formed at district and sub-district level. And it was the reason that process of formation of these committees was delayed for so long as PML-N was not ready to give any further share to the PPP in governance in the Punjab. A PML-N leader, who did not want to be named, said that the power-sharing formula was scrapped the day PML-N had stepped out of the Federal Government and PPP ministers in Punjab Government should have followed the suit at that time. He further said that particularly after the drop scene of the Governors Rule in Punjab the PPP had lost all moral standing to become part of the Punjab Government and they should have quit the government but they were cashing on the nobility of Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif who had said that PPP ministers could leave the government on their own and he would not ask them to leave the cabinet. Most of the PPP ministers in the Punjab Cabinet were also not happy over the state of affairs as PML-N government was not treating them at par with their own party ministers and in most of the cases they were even not invited in the crucial cabinet meetings. A PPP member of Punjab cabinet seeking anonymity said that they were having just ceremonial status and had no powers at their disposal. He said that they had taken up the matter with their party leadership but as the party Co-Chairman President Asif Ali Zardari wanted them to stay part of the Punjab coalition they were honouring his direction otherwise their presence in the Punjab cabinet is meaningless. To a question about keeping them out of the committees formed at district and Tehsil level to assist government in efficiently dealing with the affairs of governance the PPP minister admitted the fact but said that it was not breach of the power-sharing formula as the power-sharing formula between PPP and PML-N broke down the day PML-N had parted ways with the Federal Government. To another question he said that only PPP ministers in Punjab cabinet were not powerless the same treatment is meted out to PML-N ministers as well because Chief Minister Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif wanted to have one-man rule in the province and he used to give weightage to bureaucrats to his own ministers. To another question he said that it was the main reason behind non-expansion of the Punjab cabinet and the induction of more PPP ministers as per power-sharing formula between the two parties was just misconception because the power-sharing formula between the two sides was not intact and it was just the Chief Ministers own desire to single-handedly rule the province.
