ISLAMABAD - Harsh words were exchanged between Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan and Senator Babar Awan on the issue of judges' reinstatement in CEC meeting of PPP, reliable sources told The Nation.   The sources said that the clash  erupted between Aitzaz Ahsan and Babar Awan when Aitzaz took stance that the deposed judges should be restored through executive order and resolution of the National Assembly. "On this, Dr Babar Awan opposed the stance of Aitzaz and said that the deposed judges should be restored by constitutional package", the sources disclosed. "Babar said that the party had clear stand for the restoration of deposed judges through constitutional package. While, Leader of the House in Senate Mian Raza Rabbani supported  Aitzaz's position and made it clear in the meeting that restoration of deposed judges should be done through executive order followed by a resolution from NA," the sources said. According to sources, the party members seriously complained that there was no coordination between the PPP's ministers and workers. They said that the workers tried to contact the ministers on cell phones but their phones remained switched off. The sources said that there was a marked difference among the party members about the separation of PPP from PML-N in the coalition government of Punjab. They alleged that Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif was working silently against the PPP. "If this coalition remains intact, the PPP will be severely daamaged in Punjab," they said. According to the sources, Aitzaz said that pre-condition of 3rd November 2007 of judiciary and coalition with the PML-N was only solution to resolve all the crises faced by the country. The sources said that most of the members rejected the stance of Aitzaz and proposed that the PPP should separate itself from the coalition in Punjab.    The sources said PPP Co-Chairman Asif has decided to change the office-bearers of the party in Punjab. "Asif Zardari has given 15-day deadline to party office holders to increase their efficiency", the sources revealed. Meanwhile, PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari Thursday ruled out the possibility of a collapse of the ruling alliance, saying that conspiracies against the government would be foiled jointly by the coalition partners. Asif Ali Zardari who was addressing a joint meeting of party's Central Executive Committee (CEC) and CEC Punjab here at the Prime Minister House, said the ruling alliance would remain intact and would serve the masses. Well-informed party sources told TheNation that Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani did not attend the meeting. Sources said that the meeting discussed a wide range of issues, including the restoration of deposed judges, price hike and organization of the party at the national level. Asif Zardari reminded the members that the current economic downturn was the result of the inept policies of the previous government that had led to inflation and price hike in the country. He, however, asserted that the coalition government was aware of the situation and was trying its utmost to control the situation through a well thought out strategy and vowed to give relief to the masses in the due course of time. Asif Zardari said the government was working day and night to steer the country out of the crises and consulted party members for evolving a comprehensive plan to protect the interests of the people. Members of the party gave their suggestions, which the party co-chairman said would be given due attention while formulating the policies. Majority of the members were of the view that important issues, including restoration of the deposed judges, should not be delayed further so that the government could address other issues of public importance. Asif Zardari also took the party members into confidence about his talks with the heads of the coalition parties and their commitment to remain together to surmount the challenges being faced by the country. He directed the Punjab chapter of the party to work in unison with the PML-N so that problems of the people are promptly addressed and resolved. Asif Zardari also announced reorganization of the party at the national level and directed the office bearers to fill the vacant posts immediately. The party ticket holders were also directed to revive their contacts with the electorate so that their problems could be resolved as well.
