N League-PPP coalition brought country to verge of collapse: Moonis Elahi

Narowal: The N League-PPP coalition has wrecked the country. Those conspiring with their foreign masters in a plot to compromise Pakistan’s sovereignty and sell off the country’s vital interests in exchange for dollars will soon meet their fate. This was stated by senior leader of Pakistan Muslim League, Moonis Elahi yesterday in Narowal while addressing a huge turn out of PML workers and supporters at Pakistan Muslim League Workers’ Convention. We will stand with the nation against enemy’s attempts at weakening Pakistan and together we shall frustrate all enemy conspiracies, Moonis Elahi declared.

Earlier, Moonis Elahi was accorded a very warm reception on his arrival at Narowal. Accompanying Moonis Elahi was PML Secretary General and Punjab Assembly Opposition Leader Ch. Zaheer ud din.

Moonis Elahi was received at the city entrance by President of Pakistan Muslim League, district Narowal Ch. Kizer Virk, Col (r) Abbas Chaudhry MPA, former District Nazim Narowal, Col. Jawed Kalhun, General Secretary PML Narowal Tauqir Aslam, Mukhtar Hussain Shah, Hafiz Riawan and other prominent party leaders. His carcade was escorted to the convention venue by hundreds of party supporters and PML Youth Wing workers on motorbikes and other vehicles.

Moonis Elahi was given a rousing welcome when he arrived at the venue. The speakers at the convention were unanimous in their condemnation of Punjab government’s failure in solving the problems of the people. The speakers also criticized Punjab government’s criminal indifference to the issues of Narowal rice farmers and hinted at an estimated loss of 5 billion rupees worth of rice crop only in district Narowal this year. Patronage by government and local administration to proclaimed offenders was pointed out as the biggest reason for rising crimes in the district by the speakers.

In his speech, Moonis Elahi lauded the army for supporting the people in their rejection of Kerry-Lugar Bill and blamed the ruling coalition of N League and PPP as solely responsible for the existing deplorable condition of the country.

He accused N League for willfully misguiding the nation at election time by making the false promise of bringing prices of all food items back to the 1999 position. He remarked that the government of N League in Punjab had miserably failed to keep the prices at the 2007 level let alone their bogus election promise of reviving the 1999 prices.

Moonis Elahi strongly condemned the present ruling clique for its deliberate failure in controlling the prices of flour and sugar. He pointed out that the hypocritical top leadership of N League owned major sugar mills and alleged that in cohorts with the sugar mafia N League was fully responsible for fleecing the poor.

He quoted the statement made on television by the official spokesman of Mian Nawaz saying that the daily expense of N League’s leader was Rs. 3.5 million. Moonis Elahi said that in a country where poor were getting poorer this extravagance was unforgivable.

Moonis Elahi criticized the N League government for deliberately slowing down the completion of DHQ Hospital, Narowal because this project was initiated by the former government.

Commenting on the sad plight of district Narowal’s rice growers, Moonis Elahi reminded the gathering that during Ch. Pervaiz Elahi’s government the farmers of Punjab were prospering and there was no food crisis during his five years. He said the farmers were selling rice at Rs. 1000 per maund whereas a fertilizer bag was available for Rs.500 only in Pervaiz Elahi’s time, but now it was the other way round. He pledged his complete support to the farming community and assured that the issues of district Narowal will be raised by PML in the assembly and at other forums.

In his address Moonis Elahi expressed serious concern over the pathetic law and order situation prevalent in district Narowal and held the Punjab government fully responsible for this criminal mess. He condemned the N government, local police and administration for openly patronizing criminals and for appointing proclaimed offenders and law absconders as coordinators in district Narowal. He sympathized with the unfortunate victims of various crimes in the district in recent months and urged the people to rise against injustice. He also warned Narowal police to desist from framing PML workers in false cases.

Moonis Elahi praised Narowal party workers and supporters for their unflinching trust in the party leadership despite victimization and persecution at the hands of N League government. Moonis Elahi declared that the day was fast approaching when the people responsible for destroying the province’s economy and peace in the last two years will be brought to book.

Leaders and workers of Pakistan Muslim League cannot be bogged down by despotic tactics and false cases: Moonis Elahi

Lahore: Vindictive activities and false cases against our leaders and workers initiated at the behest of Punjab Chief Minister will not bog down our spirits. This was stated by Moonis Elahi, senior leader of Pakistan Muslim League while talking to journalists in Sahiwal yesterday after visiting the ailing former federal advisor and MNA, Rana Tariq Jawed at Central Jail , Sahiwal. He said that the current Punjab government was scared of the rising popularity of Pakistan Muslim League and through negative tactics was making futile attempts to block the upward surge. He declared that the revengeful and below the belt tactics of Shahbaz Sharif and his cronies will not be pocketed. Earlier, on his arrival Moonis Elahi was greeted by highly enthusiastic party leaders and workers who had turned out in a great number for his reception at Qadirabad. The procession was led by hundreds of Muslim League Youth Wing members chanting slogans for Moonis Elahi. Accompanying Moonis Elahi were Punjab Assembly Opposition Leader, Ch. Zaheer ud Din, senior party leaders including Raja Basharat, Arshad Khan Lodhi, Ch. Naurez Shakur and Iqbal Langrial.

Moonis Elahi said that Rana Tariq Jawed was a seasoned politician and a popular figure and the ill treatment being meted out to him at Central Jail, Sahiwal was highly condemnable. He cautioned the government functionaries to desist from becoming a party to Shahbaz Sharif’s revengeful agenda and urged them to be fair. He said that the police and other government officials involved in acts of high handedness against PML leaders and workers will be taken to task very soon. Moonis Elahi praised the exemplary courage of PML leaders and workers in the face of Punjab government’s undemocratic, despotic, unconstitutional and illegal actions being taken against them. Moonis Elahi warned the Punjab government to refrain from its negative tactics and instead focus on the problems of the masses. He said that it was due to its negative politics that N League government in Punjab had totally lost its credibility and that was the reason why Nawaz Sharif was also trying to wriggle his way out of the election.
