LAHORE Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, while averring that Pakistan cannot afford another 'bad incident, has said there should be no point-scoring on the issue of water and all problems should be resolved through mutual understanding. He was addressing the Punjab Assembly on Wednesday after the opposition members speeches regarding the closure of Chashma-Jhelum Link Canal, and alleged loss of Punjabs water share. Shahbaz criticised the Opposition for being the supporters of dictator Pervez Musharraf and said the conspiracy to create a conflict between Sindh and Punjab would be foiled, as it was only a wishful thinking. He reiterated his stance that Punjab neither would take a single drop of water from the share of Sindh nor would it surrender its own. The dictator pushed Pakistan to the verge of disaster and the country is still facing the negative effects of his policies, he said. He said Irsa would be reconstituted in accordance with the Constitution and the supremacy of the Constitution would also be upheld. The Prime Minister has the right to nominate Irsa members from any part of the country, he said. Shahbaz said Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa were the bastions of Pakistan and would strengthen the country collectively. He said during the meeting presided over by the prime minister the other day, he (Shahbaz) highlighted the wrongdoings committed by the dictator with regard to the formation of Irsa, adding that in order to take remedial measures, the meeting of Irsa Wednesday would consider reorganisation of the institution in accordance with the law. The CM paid tributes to his counterpart from Sindh Qaim Ali Shah, who had stated in that meeting that he had cordial relations with the CM Punjab, which would help resolve the issue on the pattern of the NFC Award. About media, the CM further stated that media was the fourth pillar of the state and enjoyed deepest respect of the government. He said while the political workers made supreme sacrifices for the revival of democracy during the dictatorial regime, media also had played a memorable role for the goal. He said the struggle and sacrifices for the revival of the democracy could not have met fruition if these were not highlighted by media, adding that various restrictions were imposed on media during the period of dictatorship, but no one could even think of repeating the same in the present democratic era. Expressing his gratitude for the resolution passed by the Assembly in favour of media, he said the misunderstandings arising out of the resolution passed by the Punjab Assembly had been removed after the passage of Tuesdays resolution. He paid rich tributes to media on its efforts for the restoration of democracy and said the govt had the deepest respect for the journalist community. Dissatisfied opposition - already wearing black bands to protest closure of the Chashma-Jhelum Link Canal - went on boycotting the proceedings even after the CMs speech, and assurance about the opening of the canal. The opposition members, especially its leader Ch Zaheerud Din, blasted the govt over poor performance. He was of the view that the CM went to Islamabad for bringing an end to loadshedding, but returned back with the orders fro the businesses to be closed by 8pm. Now when he went for getting Punjabs share of water and he brought the closure of CJ Link Canal, he remarked.
