Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) senior leader Sharjeel Memon launched a scathing attack on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Wednesday.
Expressing his thoughts in Peshawar, Memon said, ‘’The campaign was started by the PTI activists on social media to pollute the social environment. Respecting others is the core of Pakistani culture.’’
Memon asserted: ‘’The country’s youth were compelled to use hurl foul language at the opponents. The PTI activists, who were active on social media, were not the media activists but the terrorists of social media.’’
‘’We want to show the positive aspects of the country to the world. Only those who have no concern with social values and norms opt to use foul language,’’ Memon added.
The former Sindh minister said that his party will never give a response to anybody using foul language. ‘’But we will counter our opponents with the befitting reply based on objectivity,’’ he added.
– Rabbani calls for elections –
PPP senior leader Senator Raza Rabbani reiterated the demand for holding timely elections in the country.
Expressing his thoughts in Islamabad, Rabbani said,’’ The ECP had already violated the constitution by not holding the elections within 90 days after the dissolution of the assemblies.’’
‘’The electoral watchdog has no excuse for delaying the elections under the guise of delimitation. The delay in the announcement of the election date is due to political and economic instabilities, ’’ Rabbani maintained.
He urged the ECP to see the matter in line with the Reko Diq project, adding that it was a decisive economic decision that did not fall within the mandate provided by the Election Act.
Rabbani called for summoning an immediate meeting for the parliamentary monitoring of the caretaker setup and electoral watchdog.
