Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Pervaiz Rasheed said on Sunday, while slamming Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) led All Parties Conference (APC), that those bringing joint declarations are politicking over dead bodies. He said these people will remain unsatisfied even if a new commission was made to probe the Model Town tragedy. He said the government will provide justice to the heirs of the people killed in model town carnage and will bring the responsible of the incident to justice.
Talking to a private TV channel he said that those involved in the tragedy will be punished, adding that the families of the victims will be served justice. He said it is the responsibility of the government to bring the perpetrators of Lahore incident to justice. He said the base of politics of Imran Khan is opposition of PML-N government. He said there is not reality in the allegations of these persons.
Federal Minister said that Punjab government should do legal consultation as to whether or not a second judicial commission can emerge in presence of the first one. He said if it was legally possible the second judicial commission should be established to satisfy the opponents, adding that if the second judicial commission was formed the opponents will object against it too.
He said it would have been better had Pervez Ealhi demanded resignation of Pervez Musharraf and his elder brother who was the interior minister after the tragic incidents of Lal Masjid in Islamabad and May 12 in Karachi.
He said the trio who attended the APC of Qadri are the opponents of the government and are used to hold government responsible for every ill present in country. These people are use to demand resignation of the present rulers prior to the Model Town incident. He said these people are use to oppose government in every matter. He said these people are trying to save Musharraf through their politics.
He said it is the big example of moral courage of the present government that it showed the door to its interior minister over the Lahore incident.
He said the report of the Lahore incident should be brought before the masses, adding that it is the responsibility of lawyers, civil society and media to put pressure on government for the issuance of report of judicial commission. He said hiding the recommendations and investigations of the commission is like committing the crime.
Parvez Rashid said meetings with politicians are routine in the politics, adding that he has no information regarding the proposed meeting of Mian Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari.
Pervaiz Rasheed said government will accept the outcome of investigation by the Judicial Commission in Lahore incident.
Pervaiz Rashid said that China and other foreign countries are taking keen interest in different sectors of Pakistan.
He said China is already investing 35 billion dollars in energy sector due to dynamic policies and leadership of Pakistan.
He said the Nandipur project had started generating electricity and the tunnel project of Neelum-Jhelum project has been completed.
The Information Minister said the government is fully cognizant of the problems faced by the IDPs of North Waziristan and is providing all required facilities to them. He said it is the strong desire of prime minister that no politics should be done on the human tragedy like one being facing by Pakistanis in form of IDPs of North Wazirsitan.
He said these people have left their homes due to ongoing operation in North Waziristan, which has been launched to flush out terrorists.
To a question, Pervaiz Rashid said civil-military relations are going in accordance with the constitution of Pakistan.
