LAHORE - While accusing Shahbaz Sharif of leading a civil disobedience movement [through protest rallies] against the federal govt, Senator Babar Awan on Thursday asked PML-N leaders to cancel what he called Jashan-e-Dengue on Oct 28. If Punjab government goes ahead with its October 28 show in Lahore, it would be tantamount to pouring salt on the wounds of bereaved families whose dear and near ones are dying of dengue, Awan remarked while addressing a news conference at the residence of Opposition Leader Raja Riaz on Thursday. The PPP leader equated PML-Ns planned rally in Lahore with General Ayub Khans Jashan-e-Tarraqi the latter had celebrated after coming into power. He alleged that Punjab govt was utilizing official resources to make preparations for its October 28 rally in the City. He asked the chief minister Punjab to deploy the government servants on fumigation drive against dengue instead of assigning them duties of affixing posters of PML-N leaders ahead of the event. If PPP, Jamat-e-Islami and PTI hold rallies in Punjab; it makes sense because these parties are in the Opposition. But if the PML-N does the same in a province where it is in power, and it is its responsibility to control law and order situation there, it is hard to fathom, he observed. He was of the view that chief minister Punjabs act of leading rallies against the federal government was tantamount to civil disobedience. Awan was of the view that PML-N was trying to postpone Senate elections by holding protest rallies, but warned that any such attempt would be punishable under Article-6 of the Constitution. Babar termed PML-Ns DG Khan rally a show of patwaris and teachers and alleged that government machinery was used to bring people to the venue. He said Mian Nawaz Sharif lacked political vision and had no agenda to solve countrys problems. He said that PML-N chief will have to change his political attitude. He also grilled Punjab government for bad law and order situation, saying that incidents of abduction for ransom, murder and dacoities were not being registered to show reduction in crime rate.
