LAHORE - Following a meeting between Punjab Governor Sardar Latif Khosa and Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah against the backdrop of PPP ministers threat to stage a sit-in outside the Punjab Assembly to press for acceptance of their 19-point agenda, the governor Monday said things would not get to the point where the PPP ministers would have to stage a sit-in. Talking to the media after attending a ceremony held in connection with the Punjab National Junior Squash Championship, the governor said that the PPP ministers in Punjab had their reservations and misunderstandings, which, he said, would be removed soon through consultations with the PML-N leadership. Conceding that he (governor) should not intervene in controversial matters as a matter of principle, he said he could play the role of a mediator in some instances if the situation so required. Khosa said he also shared this view with the Punjab law minister who called on him at the Governors House. The governor hoped all issues, including PPP ministers, would be resolved amicably in the ongoing consultation with the PML-N leaders. He said the PPP believed in democratic norms and peaceful protests were part of democracy. He said the PPP wanted to work together with the Punjab government to create an atmosphere of peace in the province and to resolve problems through reconciliatory politics. Sources said the governor later called Senior Minister Raja Riaz to the Governors House and asked him to put off his sit-in planned for Tuesday (today). Raja Riaz reportedly demanded a written assurance from the Punjab government that it will consider the 19-point demands. The governor then contacted senior leaders of the PML-N who agreed to issue a statement in this regard. However, no such statement was issued till late night Monday. The PML-N, on the other hand, has decided not to pay heed to PPP ministers 'charter of demands unless the same is routed through party Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari or Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani. Punjab Governments spokesperson Pervaiz Rashid confirmed the report while talking to this scribe. This decision seems to have created an embarrassing situation for the PPP ministers who are reportedly trying to find a way out for face-saving. The announcement by the governor regarding likely postponement of the planned sit-in has also put the PPP ministers in an awkward situation. The visibly perturbed ministers were indecisive till late at night whether to go ahead with their planned move or not. The governors decision seems to have Talking to TheNation, Punjab Labour Minister Ashraf Sohna said that the PPP ministers would have a meeting on Tuesday (today) in the office of Senior Punjab Minister Raja Riaz and then come up with a final decision about their sit-in. Sohna said that following lackluster response to their demands by the PML-N, they had been left with no option but to stage a sit-in to register their protest. Meanwhile, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah reiterated his partys stance that the PML-N would say goodbye to the PPP ministers in Punjab if the federal government did not implement its 10-point charter of demands. Talking to media after meeting Punjab Governor Sardar Latif Khosa, the law minister said that his meeting with the governor was scheduled and had nothing to do with PPPs 19-point as projected by the PPP ministers. But this claim of the law minister was refuted by highly credible sources in the Governor House who insisted that Rana Sana did take up the matter of ministers planned sit-in with the governor and also sought his intervention to stop PPP ministers from doing so. The law minister further told reporters that Raja Riaz might not have read the 19 points himself and the move was only meant to counter the 10-point reforms agenda put forth by Mian Nawaz Sharif. He said that Raja Riaz was indulging in point-scoring needlessly. He, however, said that it had been agreed between the two parties to work together to resolve all contentious issues. About the Raymond Davis issue, Rana said the Punjab government would meet all requirements of justice and even the US government would appreciate it. To a question about the PML-Q forward bloc, he declared it a right development in accordance with the constitution. Commenting on the meeting between the governor and the law minister, Governors Media Adviser Munawar Anjum, however, said that Rana Sanaullah met the governor to invite him to the wedding of his daughter.
