PPP Senator Sherry Rehman on Sunday said the PML-N should “refrain from making remarks that would empower the elected government.”
Rehman was addressing a press conference in Karachi along with two other senior PPP leaders Maula Bakhsh Chandio and Shazia Murree. Geo TV Reported
His remarks came in response to a speech by Maryam Nawaz a day earlier in which she called on the PPM to support 30 senators and the opposition leader to secure a seat in the Senate for his candidate, Yousuf Raza Gilani. The PDM was ridiculed without blessings.
“Maryam Nawaz has to stick to her goal of restoring her political goals and overthrowing the PTI-led government,” Sherry Rehman said.
“We do not want the PDM (Pakistan Democratic Movement) to dissolve, so the PML-N should refrain from issuing remarks that would strengthen the elected government.”
Talking to reporters, Murree said that when Bilawal Bhutto Zardari adopted a “political tone”, Maryam Nawaz’s tone in yesterday’s press conference was “regrettable”.
“We are sorry to use the word ‘elected’ to describe the PPP,” Murree said. “However, the PPP is well aware of how to respond to every sarcastic comment.”
“There are people in the PML-N who understand the delicacy of the occasion. We will continue the democratic tradition inside and outside parliament,” he said.
He further said that the PPP has reservations against the PML-N candidate for the post of Leader of the Opposition in the Senate, Azam Nazir Tarar.
Adding to the comments, Maulabakhsh Chandio said the PDM was neither owned by anyone nor “a child’s play.”
