ISLAMABAD-Federal Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination Senator Mian Raza Rabbani has stated that PPP would do issue-based politics and accountability of government while sitting on Opposition benches in Punjab but in the same breath made it loud and clear that they would not indulge in politics of 90s and would not become part of any move aimed at destabilising the incumbent political dispensation. Flanked by Federal Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs and Central Information Secretary of the PPP Qamar Zaman Kaira, former Federal Minister Nazar Muhammad Gondal, Senior Minister in Punjab Government Raja Riaz and other PPP Ministers in Punjab Cabinet who would be ousted from the Cabinet any time by Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif, Raza Rabbani said that the 10-point agenda given by Mian Nawaz Sharif was actually the part of their partys manifesto and now after the decision of PML-N to walk away from the negotiations process, the PPP government would sincerely and speedily continue implementing the reforms process which also covered the 10-points agenda given by Mian Nawaz Sharif. On the one hand, Raza Rabbani, even after the announcement by Mian Nawaz Sharif to oust PPP Ministers from Punjab Government, adopted the reconciliatory course but soon after he concluded his statement Federal Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Dr. Babar Awan adopted quite hostile attitude and grilled PML-N for promoting horse-trading and 'lotacracy in the province and made it loud and clear that PPP Ministers in the Punjab govt would not resign. He said that they would come up with their detailed policy stand following the dissolution of Punjab Cabinet and their formal ouster from the government. However, Raza Rabbani said that even after the separation of their party from coalition government in Punjab they would continue to follow the policy of reconciliation and hoped that the dialogue process between the government and Opposition should continue and the major political parties would not drift back to the politics of 90s. He further said that though Article 63-A, dealing with the defection of MPs, would be applicable on the political parties after next general elections but morally Punjab Government should follow it right now and would not indulge in the politics of horse-trading which would ultimately weaken the political parties and institutions. Rabbani said that PPP had sincerely worked with PML-N towards the implementation of the 10-point agenda given by Mian Nawaz Sharif and in the short span they had accomplished a lot of things and gave detailed resume of the progress made on the 10-point agenda. He said that from rationalising the petroleum prices, load and power load-shedding, evolving transparent mechanism for appointment of Chief Executive Officers in the State owned corporations, action against all those who had got their loans right off on political grounds, price monitoring mechanism and revamping of the board of Governors of various State-owned entities like PIA, Pakistan Steel Mills and a number of power generations companies, the government had made considerable progress and by and larger the PML-N team was also satisfied. He further said that for effective price control mechanism the bill for bringing in executive magistracy was also in final shape while on new accountability law they had given the draft to PML-N and sought their input on it so that they same could be incorporated in it for early legislation but to no avail as PML-N leadership was not ready to look at the positive side of the developments. 'Progress made by PPP on the 10-point agenda of PML-N in 45 days was no less achievement as restructuring of some nine board of Governors of State-owned power companies, NTDC, Railways was not less thing while restructuring of another three to four corporations including PIA, NHA and CDA was also on the cards, he added. He also talked about the ongoing reforms in FBR. Rabbani said that even after sitting on the Opposition benches they would continue to follow the politics of reconciliation and dialogue to take the country forward which according to him was passing through very difficult times. Soon after Mian Raza Rabbani, Federal Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Dr. Babar Awan said that PPP would not be assuming the role of a senior ombudsman from a junior coalition partner and hinted at Senior Minister Raja Riaz taking over as the role of senior ombudsman in Punjab. He said that they were the custodians of Charter of Democracy and politics of reconciliation and greeted PML-N for 'lotacracy. Responding to a question,he differed with the view of Senator Mian Raza Rabbani that Article 63-A would not apply right now and said that the Article 63-A dealing with defection of members from their party would definitely be applied. Responding to various questions both Mian Raza Rabbani and Dr. Babar Awan allayed the impression that there was any hand of PPP behind the Governors Rule in the province and the disqualification of Mian Shahbaz Sharif from the then Supreme Court under the head of the then Chief Justice Abdul Hamid Dogar. Rabbani said that had this been the case President Asif Ali Zardari would not have lifted the Governors Rule and paved the way for restoration of PML-N Government. He said that it was the spirit of reconciliation that PPP had not manoeuvered to form the government in Punjab with other smaller political parties after the general elections only to bring to an end the politics of horse-trading and let the PML-N to form government and had joined them as junior coalition partner. Babar branded the Unification Bloc as gang of Chhanga Manga.
