Clear line drawn between PDM, PPP: Maryam Nawaz | The Express Tribune


LAHORE:

Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Saturday said that a clear line has been drawn between Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) over its move for the smallest slot in Senate which damaged PDM’s struggle for democracy.

She was talking to the media after she visited the Lahore High Court (LHC) earlier in the day to submit a surety bond of Rs1 million for bail in the Jatti Umra land allotment case.

“PPP compromised on a ‘politics of principle’ and preferred to take votes from Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) which according to her “does not act without the command of what she called “baap”.

On a query regarding minus PPP from PDM, she responded that she was waiting for the statement of PDM’s President Molana Fazalur Rehman on it.

“It is regrettable that PPP did not bother the PDM’s decision on opposition leader in the Senate. If this slot was much important for PPP then it should have contacted PML-N’s Chief Mian Nawaz Sharif,” she said.

Maryam further added that on the one side there were some people who were laying down lives for the struggle of democracy, law and order and on another, some people are compromising politics of principle.

It is the first time in history where government voted in favour of the opposition leader of the upper house, she added.

“PDM’s remaining political parties including PML-N are enough to give tough time to the government,” she asserted.

She further added the politics of “Adha teetar adha betair” would not be tolerated and that things should be very clear now.

“When some people were talking about the vote of no confidence in Punjab, Mian Nawaz Sharif had made clear that time that they will not stand by with selectors,” she said.
