President Asif Ali Zardari has appealed to PML-N Chief Mian Nawaz Sharif as well as other political parties to put aside political differences and take measures to help the flood stricken people as this is not the time to indulge in political gimmicks. According to media reports and reliable sources, President Asif Ali Zardari asked Nawaz Sharif to be sensible and instead of holding public rallies in Lahore he should strive for taking measures against the Dengue fever and come to Sindh to help out flood affectees. Zardari further said that the PML-N chief should adopt positive attitude and stop criticizing military, as people are already frustrated over political confrontations. While talking about democracy, president said that the majority during former president Farooq Leghari's tenure could not save democracy. It takes years to build democracy but seconds to ravage, president added. President said PPP by giving enormous sacrifices had restored democracy in the country and restored the constitution to its true shape and given provinces autonomy. All parties have to play their individual roles for stability of the democratic system. President said floods have caused massive destruction in Sindh, Punjab is under the grip of dengue virus in view of such a bleak scenario the people do not need political speeches but need practical measures to overcome their difficulties. He said this is not the time to play political gimmicks by holding rally in Lahore and criticise one another by finding faults but it is time to come forward to help out the affectees. Nawaz Sharif should come to Sindh and help people. My house in Nawabshah is open for the PML-N leader. Asking Nawaz Sharif to act wisely, President said: I hope the time does not come that neither he is able to visit my jail cell nor I could visit him. He said that PPP has always followed the policy of reconciliation , which we would continue. We should set aside differences and work together for the people of this country. He said that the country is passing through a critical phase and unity is the key to countering these challenges. He said that all necessary assistance for the flood affectees would be ensured and no negligence would be tolerated in this regard. We would not leave the people of Sindh alone in their difficult time. Meanwhile President Zardari also held telephonic conversation with PML-Q President Ch Shujaat Hussain and assured that all reservations of the PML-Q would be removed. He assured that there would be no unnecessary meddling in the affairs of Q ministries in Sindh. The President has reportedly given directions to Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah in this regard. PML-Q had announced quitting coalition in Sindh, with its ministers and advisers submitting resignation to Federal Minister Ghaus Bakhsh Mehr. The PML-Q move comes at a time when the Sindh government is already grappling with the situation caused by MQM quitting the Sindh cabinet.
