Jamaat-e-Islami Punjab Ameer Dr Syed Waseed Akhtar has called upon all the political stakeholders to make efforts for ensuring rule of law in the country, asking Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehrik (PAT) to become part of dialogue in larger national interest.

Talking to the journalists here on Tuesday, he added that peaceful protest was political right of everyone but this protest should not be meant to derail democracy. He demanded the government to accept all legitimate demands of the opposition to protect the country from conspiracies of the enemies. He feared that the democracy might suffer from the ill-advised policies of the rulers and said that all Pakistanis needed to unite at one platform to foil the conspiracies.

He pointed out that no extra-constitutional activity could take place in the country in presence e of Article 6 and 7 of the Constitution. He warned that environment for anarchy and riots was being developed in the country and any third power could take benefit of the situation. He asked all political players to exhibit political wisdom and protect democracy in the country. He urged upon all political players to refrain from doing political point scoring as the country passed through the most critical time of its political history. “Supremacy of parliament should be ensured in this situation. The ill-advised decisions of our political leaders have made mockery of our institutions and country in the world. Resigning from assemblies will not achieve anything except hurting public’s trust in them,” he declared.

Land record computerisation

The computerisation of Revenue Land Record is underway and computerisation of 70 percent of the record in Multan, Khanewal and Vehari districts has been completed. This was disclosed by Divisional Tehsildar Malik Sajjad Hussain Mahy here on Tuesday. He added that although some revenue officials including patwaris and tehsildars had reservations on the ongoing computerisation project, the work on it was underway at full pace, adding that the reservations of revenue staff would be cleared. He declared that the opinion and suggestions of revenue officials would be sent to the high-ups. He said that the government would accept all genuine demands of patwaris. “We hope that the patwaris will fully cooperate in computerisation of the record,” he hoped.
