SADIQABAD -  The government has performed nothing except adding to public woes, PPP South Punjab spokesman Rana Tariq Mehmood said.

Talking to media, he said that those who used to claim eliminating power outages in six months have denied to public right to living. "They have performed nothing except giving rise to loadshedding, unemployment and terrorism in the country," he said. He said that Nawaz Sharif will have to appear in the JIT in light of the Supreme verdict on Panama case. He said that former president Asif Ali Zardari and PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari started struggle to get the public rid of the corrupt rulers. He said that the rulers will continue until Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resigns.

BAR-BENCH CO-OP STRESSED: The bar and bench are two wheels of the judicial vehicle and mutual cooperation between them is necessary to provide the public with speedy justice.
