LAHORE - Veteran politician Malik Ghulam Mustafa Khar Thursday said the failure of the incumbent government and the system was very much evident, which could not move further with the help of crutches. It was, therefore, imperative for the politicians, armed forces and the judiciary to sit together to sketch out and work on a national agenda consisting of challenges faced by the country. Expressing his views in 'Agla Qadam, a WAQT NEWS programme, Khar said President Asif Ali Zardari had never been a leader. People had attached hopes with Nawaz Sharif but his image too had tainted because of the working relationship with Zardari and not playing the role of an effective opposition. He said he had already observed that matters could not move smoothly after the martyrdom of Benazir Bhutto because nobody had trust in Zardari. I was of the view that the coalition between the PML-N and the PPP can not work and last long. My observation has come true, he claimed. He said the government could have delivered even if 40 per cent people were supporting it but a government deprived of the trust and support of the people was not in a position to make any progress, adding that the present government was the most unpopular in the countrys history. Talking about the in-house and constitutional change as mentioned by Nawaz Sharif, he said that it had never happened in Pakistan. He called it a sin to ask the Army to bring about a change and maintained the only available option was that the politicians, Army and judiciary should join hands to chalk out a common agenda. He said Nawaz Sharif had a choice to come out openly and do what the people wanted. He should leave Zardari now, as he has always betrayed by him, he opined. Answering a question about Kalabagh Dam, he claimed that Benazir Bhutto was in favour of the project and declared it as the life of Pakistan. At first, she believed that it was contemplated by Ziaul Haq but later, when she was briefed, she was convinced that it was necessary for the survival of the country. Now if Gilani favours it, he must talk to Zardari and press him to satisfy Sindh, he said. He strongly criticised Altaf Hussain, saying his agenda would affect the federation badly and that he wanted anarchy in the name of revolution. He want to break the federation that is why he speaks of martial law, Khar said. Khar claimed Nawab Akbar Bugti had informed him that Musharraf and the Army would kill him. In reply to another question, he said Balochistan issue would not be resolved by the use of force; rather, the solution should be found through negotiations.
