Government headed on a collision course with Supreme Court: PAT

Criticizing the government’s decision to double the load-shedding during the holy month of Ramadan, Faiz-ur-Rehman Durrani, President of Pakistan Awami Tehreek, has said that the government has little to show in terms of good performance and its policies have pushed the people into abyss of problems and never ending crises. He said that Karachi has virtually become a theater of war where warring parties are fighting pitched battles for attaining ascendancy. The government’s writ does not seem to be in sight. The government, he said, is headed on a collision course with the Supreme Court by turning a deaf ear to the verdicts handed down by the apex court of the country. He further stated that this grim situation bodes ill for future.

Faiz-ur-Rehman Durrani expressed these views while talking to a delegation of PAT from District Bahalwalnagar, which called on him in his office yesterday.

He said that the problems are on the increase and there is no one to implement the writ of the government. The wave of price hike and inflated power tariff would further push the people into miserable situation. He asked the people to stand up against the government and the best way to do so is to raise awareness about the electoral system, which is the mother of all problems. He said that if the masses made a vow to use the power of vote judiciously, the present lot of greedy politicians would be nowhere in sight.
