ISLAMABAD - Former foreign minister and Pakistan Peoples Party central leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi has resigned from partys basic membership as well as from the National Assembly seat and asked the members of the Parliament, particularly from Opposition, to follow the suit and launch struggle for fresh elections. Talking to media persons outside the Parliament House on Monday evening, Qureshi said he would spell out his future political course at a public rally to be organised at Ghotki on November 27. Giving a long charge sheet of failures on the part of government to deliver and serve the cause of people, Qureshi said he was breaking his two decades long association with Pakistan Peoples Party with heavy heart and paid glowing tributes to Benazir Bhutto whose political philosophy, he claimed, was buried with her by the incumbent leadership of the party. He said he wanted to announce his resignation on the floor of the house but was prevented from doing so as the chair did not allow him to speak. He said Parliament had lost its utility and the rulers had turned it into a redundant entity so he deemed it fit to resign and asked all the MPs, particularly those from Opposition benches, who felt pain for the sufferings of the people to resign and launch struggle for the fresh public mandate to serve their cause. He said unanimous resolutions adopted by the Parliament could not be implemented. Not to speak of its implementation, even a parliamentary committee for implementation of the unanimous resolution adopted by All Parties Conference could not be constituted. He said future elections should be held under an apolitical interim setup and independent Election Commission so that the true representatives of masses could reach the Parliament. He said the incumbent PPP was no more the party of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto rather it could rightly be dubbed as Zardari League which was infested with people who had hurt Benazir Bhutto and had nothing to do with the political philosophy of Ms Bhutto. Now these people are sitting close to Zardari, he added. He said Zardari betrayed the vision of Mohtarma and he did not want to be part of Zardari League. He was also critical of governments indifference towards arresting the killers of Benazir Bhutto despite the fact that the police and all the intelligence agencies were under their control. Expressing concern over PPP alliance with PML-Q, the former minister said it was in sheer violation of Charter of Democracy (CoD). He said Gilani government had failed in reviving the economy of Pakistan, adding that poverty, unemployment and inflation were on the rise and relations with IMF were broken. He said the Prime Minister talked too much about the rights of southern Punjab but the entire Saraiki belt was protesting against the injustice meted out to it? He complained that the farmers here were not getting due price of their Phutti (raw cotton) and they were purchasing urea fertilizer at inflated rates. Strongly criticising the government for its failure to revive various state entities like Pakistan Railways, PIA, Wapda and Pakistan Steel Mills, Qureshi said due to governments bad governance over Rs 1,000 billion had been wasted but no serious measures were taken for their restructuring. He further said that had the restructuring plan of strategic assets given by Shaukat Tarin been implemented, the money pumped in as bailout packages for these entities could be saved. Qureshi recalled that he was the sole district nazim who had rejected the offers made by former president Pervez Musharraf. Those who were foes of Benazir Bhutto are new friends of President Zardari, he added. I was barred from attending a CEC meeting despite having the membership intact, he commented. Referring to the statement of Mansoor Ejaz, he said had his claim been wrong President Zardari would have taken a legal action against him. He also urged the Supreme Court of Pakistan to take notice of the correspondence between President Zardari with American authorities.
