Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullahs observations about his arch rival, former Federal Law Minister Babar Awan has caused ripples across the countrys political spectrum and the PPP is out to protest it in a big way demanding Rana Sanas resignation. Protests were held in the Senate, National Assembly and Punjab Assembly. The Senate also passed a resolution demanding his removal. Meanwhile, Punjab Governor Latif Khosa wrote a letter to Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif asking him to take action under relevant laws. Mian Shahbaz received a PPP delegation headed by Raja Riaz and promised to look into the matter. On his part, Rana Sanaullah has explained in his television interviews that he did not say anything about the person of Babar Awan and what he said was the opinion of a lawyers group. Rowdy scenes inside the Parliament are part and parcel of democratic system in many parts of the world, Japan, South Korea, Greece, Russia or India. Members of Parliament do indulge in ugly scenes on issues but they never get personal. If Mr Awans utterances are to be recalled, both Mian Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif have been targeted. He called them 'mafroors (fugitives) and 'bhagorras (run-aways), and delivered very provocative speeches during his recent visits to the provincial capital which he termed 'Takht-e-Lahore. On the issue of Like-minded MPAs headed by Mr Maneka, a dissident faction of the PML-Q, PPP PMAs displayed mini-lotas attached to their fingers inside the House and had played football with 'lotas outside on the roads in front of the Punjab Assembly building. We expect that better sense would prevail on both sides of the fence and top leadership of PPP and PML-N would advise their party stalwarts not to indulge in acts detrimental to the democratic set-up. To reduce the heat on this issue, they must meet, before it is too late, and make a serious attempt at cooling down tempers. Rana Sana should also show magnanimity and if he feels that he has said something unguarded, he should express his regrets.
