ISLAMABAD - Brushing aside the impression that the Government is planning to impose accountability law of its own choice, Federal Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Dr. Babar Awan once again made it clear that they would strictly follow the recommendations of the National Assembly Standing Committee regarding the formation of National Accountability Commission. He further said that the Government believed in the independence of judiciary and the Supreme Court verdict on National Reconciliation Ordinance would be accepted, adding the party decision of not defending the NRO in the apex court was also taken in the light of rejection of the ordinance by the Parliament. Talking to TheNation here on Monday, Babar said history is witness to the fact that Pakistan Peoples Party remained the victim of the draconian accountability laws enforced in the past. He further said that like in the past, they would not shy away from the courts of law, as PPP leadership was clean and not even a single case of corruption was proved against any of the mainstream party leader in the past. Recalling the Ehtesab Ordinance of 1996 which, according to him, was aimed at targeting Shaheed Chairperson of PPP Ms Benazir Bhutto and later the then Government of Mian Nawaz Sharif, was enacted from the Parliament and again the target was Ms. Benazir Bhutto, her spouse Asif Ali Zardari and other party leaders. Dr. Babar Awan said that once again the PPP leadership was targeted by the National Accountability Bureau Ordinance issued soon after the removal of Mian Nawaz Sharifs Government in 1999, and added that PPP leadership had steadfastly faced all these politically motivated cases and neither they entered into some clandestine deal with the dictators nor got refuge abroad. To a question, he said there is no plan whatsoever to bring the accountability law of their choice as they believed in the supremacy of the judiciary. Referring to the Governments decision of not defending the National Reconciliation Ordinance in the Supreme Court of Pakistan, Babar said that it was because of their faith in the judiciary that they were not defending it in the court and were sticking to the stance that they had taken on the issue in the Parliament. He said that PPP did not believe in politics of victimisation and that was the reason that soon after coming into power, their leadership had adopted the policy of reconciliation. He further said that they would accept the verdict of the court on the NRO. To a question about the Balochistan package, Babar termed it a right step in the right direction and said that it was just the beginning and they would appease their Baloch brethren by positively responding to their demands. He said that no irregularity in dealing with the job quota for Balochistan would be made and added that some 13,000 jobs were available for Baloch nationals, while another 5,000 additional jobs were allocated to them in the Balochistan package.
