LAHORE - The PPP leaders on Tuesday alleged that after Punjabi Taliban, Lahori Taliban were now bent upon destroying peace of the province. Addressing a joint news conference here, PPP leaders including Punjab Finance Secretary Aurangzeb Burki, Central Deputy Secretary Information Haider Zaman Qureshi, Punjab Secretary Information, Dr. Fakhruddin Ch and Lahore President Asghar Gujjar accused Punjab government of patronising terrorist organisations, and observed that terrorism was on the rise since in the province because of the official patronage of extremists. Aurangzeb Burki said that a conspiracy had been hatched against Punjab to create disturbance here. After the Punjabi Taliban, he said, Lahori Taliban were now active to disrupt peace in the province. He said federal government was also partially responsible for incidents of terrorism, because it had not reprimanded Punjab government on this count. He said that if the law and order situation in Punjab deteriorated any further, then the demand for imposition of governors rule in the province would gain momentum. Dr. Fakhruddin alleged that incidents of terrorism have increased manifold in Punjab due to Rana Sana Ullahs association with the terrorist organisations. He questioned why the Punjab CM was helpless to sack his law minister for his association with the banned organisations. Replying to a question, Haider Zaman said that unlike Punjab government, which was extending political patronage to the terrorists, the provincial governments in Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pukhtunkhawa, were fighting against the terrorists. Demanding resignation of Rana Sana, PPPs Lahore President, Asghar Gujjar held the law minister responsible for attack on the shrine of Hazrat Ali Hajvairi, saying that no terrorist attack took place at Data Darbar in the past nine years but it happened after law minister developed proximity with terrorists. He demanded registration of criminal case against the minister. Dr. Fakhruddin also accused Punjab government of supporting separatist movements in Sindh and Balochistan in a bid to isolate Punjab from rest of the country and to establish a Kingdom here. The PPP, he added, would foil all such attempts. Rejecting Sana Ullahs criticism of Interior Minister Rehman Malik and Law Minister Babar Awan, he said that both had been close aides of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed in her life time, and now they were playing the same role for President Asif Ali Zardari. The PPP leader further said that Rehman Malik had played commendable role to exterminate terrorism, while Babar Awan had a greater contribution in running government affairs.
