LAHORE - Four PML-Q forward bloc MPAs including Dr Tariq Javed, Mukhtar Ahmad Bharat, Ch Arshad and Shaukat Bhatti in a joint statement have said that they are striving for the stability of present govt in the best interest of the country and democracy but some federal agencies are continuously harassing them for obeying their commands. According to a press release issued here on Thursday, they said that federal agencies are forcing them to give up their support of Punjab government by using their traditional tactics in this regard. They blamed that they were also being pressurised not to participate in Iftar party hosted by PML-N MNA Capt. (Retd) Muhammad Safdar. They said that they are performing their national and political responsibilities in accordance with their conscience and are not taking any decision under any kind of pressure. He said that no one likes intervention of federal government in the affairs of the province. Meanwhile, Mian Atta Manika has condemned harassment to Forward Block MPAs and said that federal institutions should not interfere in provincial matters. He said that nation is still paying a heavy price for the role played by agencies in toppling previous governments. Mian Atta Manika further said that it is the responsibility of federal government to control agencies and should not use them for achievement of political ends. It is in the best interest of the nation that this practice should immediately be stopped and democratic norms and values should be promoted, he added. Policy to check US hits urged PML-N Lawyers Forum has called for a clear-cut government policy against the US aggression in the tribal areas of Pakistan. Divisional secretary general of the forum Waseem Ahmad Butt told a press conference that after the US missile attacks on the innocent people in the tribal areas, the President as Supreme Commander of the Army and the Prime Minister should have denounced them in strong words but regrettably it did not happen and a befitting statement on this count came from the Army Chief Ashfaq Parvez Kayani. He said, "It shows that our political leadership lacks the potential to withstand American threats and its aggressive designs which means it would let the people go on dying through missiles from across the border." He said the Prime Minister's statement that "We are unable to fight the US" also revealed our weakness to defend ourselves. Waseem reminded that in the face of every pressure from America, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif during his tenure, test fired the nuclear bombs to declare Pakistan first atomic power of the Muslim world.  "We need the same courage once again," he asserted.
