Outspoken politician and Independent MNA Jamshed Dasti asserted on Friday that Presidential system should be imposed in the country as Constitution had become a national and public “enemy.” The present Constitution is in worst shape and under its cloak, the Wapda and Police are robbing and hurting the masses.”
Addressing a press conference at Bahawalpur Press Club, Dasti alleged that in Chak 341/HR Marot, Bahawalnagar, the Police through its barbaric approach, had left behind the Israeli barbarism, adding that the “Gullo Butts in police” had locked behind bars 82 innocents people on the charges of terrorism. He demanded that case should be registered against the Punjab IG Police, the Bahawalpur RPO along with Bahawalnagar DPO and DCO on the charges of murder and they should be arrested forthwith.
“Why the Supreme Court is silent and does not taking suo moto notice of the use of brute force by the police in Marot,” he questioned, adding that the entire country was inflamed while the leaders had become spectators.
“In Parliament national enemies are sitting, departments have been destroyed and such decisions are made in the Parliament which are against the national interest,” he claimed.
Dasti informed that in Marot, the police committed worst highhandedness. “The cops beaten innocent people including women and children, dragged them out of their houses and set ablaze their houses,” he condemned, adding that 82 persons had been locked in police stations under the charges of terrorism.
He criticised that whenever a dog was killed in Lahore, parliamentarians raised in such a manner as if earthquake had struck Lahore while people of southern Punjab were treated as second class citizens.
The Independent MNA demanded that cases against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Minister for Water and Power Khawaja Asif and State Minister Abid Sher Ali must be registered for a Rs50 billion fraud with the public in name of ‘fake bills’ adding that they should be arrested. Dasti came down hard on politicians belonging to Southern Punjab, saying that they had become puppets to the rulers.
He lamented that both the PML-N and PPP who used the slogan of Bahawalpur’s provincial status restoration in their election campaign, had now backed out from their promise
