LAHORE - PML-Q MNA Marvi Memon is scheduled to present in the National Assembly on Thursday a list of cases where the government functionaries had failed to implement the court orders and faced contempt proceedings. Talking to reporters here on Wednesday, she said failure of the government to implement the court orders was a serious issue and must be debated in parliament at length. She said she had raised many issues of public interest from the platform of the parliament and would continue to do so in the future, no matter what the conduct of those regulating the proceedings. In case the government did not heed, people would be left with no option but to come on the streets. A rising star of the PML-Q, Marvi urged the people to get united for their rights. She said instead of holding demonstrations in small groups - which bring no results - they should organize bigger shows to mount pressure on the government to come to terms. She said she would stand by the people in their struggle for their rights. She clarified that the purpose of her campaign for peoples rights was not to derail the system, but to fix democracy and make the system deliver. The legislator from Karachi said the PML-Q was trying to play an effective role in parliament and let the electorate know that the party was doing its best to expose the governments corrupt practices and mount pressure on it to honour the commitments it had made to people. She said while she herself had raised the issue of floods situation and the Air Blue tragedy, fellow MNA Makhdoom Faisal Saleh Hayat had taken up the issue of Rental Power Stations, which allegedly involved kickbacks of billions. The PML-Q parliamentarian said people belonging to various walks of life were protesting to have their demands met as parliament had failed to discharge its duties. She said people elected their representatives to have their problems solved, and since the legislators had failed to come up to the expectations of the electorate, protests and sit-ins had become order of the day. Decisions taken by parliament, she said, were not being implemented by the executive, as a result of which unrest was going up. She warned that the country could face Egypt-like situation in case the government failed to address peoples problems. She regretted that the government was wasting public money for ostentation, but always talked of paucity of funds when people wanted their problems solved. Giving details of the protests held in the recent past, she said on Feb 21, daily wagers of the Port Qasim Authority staged a sit-in outside Port Qasim Authority to demand job security. On Feb 20, the lower staff of the Education Department held a sit-in for their regularization. Though the Sindh government had promised that it would do so, it did not. She alleged that the government functionaries might sell these jobs to make money. On Feb 19, governments decision to entertain the demands of paramedics, following a 17-day protest, has given some hope to 53 recently terminated nurses of Polyclinic Hospital. To protest the illegal termination of their jobs and make a plea for regularisation, they staged a sit-in in front of the Parliament. On Feb 19, hundreds of residents of localities of Gilgit town blocked the main road to condemn suspension of water supply for past two weeks and prolonged loadshedding. The protesters also staged a sit-in and burnt tyres while chanting slogans against the water and power department and the water and sanitation agency.
