OKARA - MPA Mueen Khan Wattoo said during the current regime, the PPP has taken the country to the brink of disaster.

The PPP leaders were calling PML-Q leaders Qatal or killers of Benazir Bhutto but now they elected Pervaiz Elahi as deputy prime minister, he deplored. He said that the step had been taken by the president to conceal his corruption and to extend his rule.

Talking the media in Wattoo House, he said the PPP-led government had given nothing to the nation except price hiking, unemployment and loadshedding. Due to flawed policies, the national security was at risk. The rulers are hatching a conspiracy against the judiciary, democracy and the parliament, he said.

Every conspiracy against the independent judiciary will be foiled, he said and added that the poor performance of the federal government had made the people hopeless. Now, the time has come to oust the rulers, he observed. He further said that the government was creating rift among the state organs. The people will defend the judiciary at all costs.

Plan  discussed: A meeting was held to review the arrangements made for the Sports Festival 2012 of the Punjab CM. In the meeting, PML-N leaders Munir, Syed Ashiq Hussain, Zahid Hussain, DO (Sports) Javed Iqbal, tehsil sports officers and secretaries of union councils participated.

Addressing the meeting, Munir said with start of the festival, the students and players would be encouraged and have an opportunity to polish their skills.

He said the festival was being held at division, district, tehsil and union council levels. The festival will include contests of recitation of Quranic verses, Naat, speeches, cricket, football, volleyball, badminton and other games.
