RAWALPINDI - PML-N MNAs Khawaja Saad Rafique and Muhammad Hanif Abbasi have announced that PML-N despite having prior permission for organising a public meeting at Liaquat Bagh, has withdrawn its decision to provide opportunity to Awami Muslim League (AML) Sh Rashid Ahmed to hold a meeting at the same venue. However, they demanded that Sh Rashid would have to clarify all the allegations, he levelled against PML-N leadership, before the masses during the public meeting at Liaquat Bagh. PML-N city chapter would take out a big rally today (Monday) on Murree Road in connection with election campaign of Malik Shakil Awan which would be addressed by party Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif. They announced this during a press conference at Rawalpindi Islamabad Press Club (RIPC) on Sunday. The conference was also attended by PML-N candidate for NA-55 Malik Shakil Awan, MNA Tahira Aurangzeb, former MPA Sardar Nasim, PML-N city President Akhtar Mehmood Advocate, Akmal Mirza and Hafiz Abdullah Butt. PML-N MNAs Saad Rafique and Hanif Abbasi, while speaking, said that Sh Rashid had foreseen his sure defeat in by election of NA-55 that is why he had launched a vilification campaign against PML-N leadership and is in a bid to escape election run. However, they made it clear, that Sh Rashid would not be allowed to do so. They made it clear that N-league was not using state machinery in NA-55 to sabotage the process, adding that it was Sh Rashid who used such negative tactics in the past to tamper the results as per his will. They said that PML-N never barred any political party to hold public gathering at Liaquat Bagh, nonetheless, it was Sh Rashid Ahmed who was creating confusion in this regard. They said, Our leadership decided not to hold a public meeting in the Liaquat Bagh and provided Sh Rashid with an opportunity to do so. N-league can provide Sh Rashid manpower to make the meeting a success, they offered. They said that the intelligence agencies termed Liaquat Bagh a sensitive place for such activities and also informed the PML-N and Sh Rashid in this regard. They said that N-league played a pivotal role for freedom of judiciary. Khawaja Saad Rafique hoped that Sh Rashid should not forget that once he was also the blue-eyed boy of Gen Musharraf and agencies, and for that he had to eat the dust during general elections.
