Doors for reconciliation with PMLN still open: Firdous

Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Firdaos Ashiq Awan said on Sunday that the option of reconciliation with PML-N was still open and the PPP would play the role of opposition in Punjab.

Talking to reporters, Firdous Awan said that though the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had parted ways with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), but the latter had not closed its doors for reconciliation.

She said that Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani wanted to continue work on the 10-point agenda irrespective of the situation in Punjab and did not want to have a deadlock on the parleys in that regard.

The Information Minister said the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) would play its rule in Punjab as per the constitution.

To a question on Raymond Davis, she said that the government would present its point of view in the court on March 14 and would accept the court decision on the case.

Earlier, MPA Chaudhry Tariq Gujjar, Mian Azhar Hasan Dar, Chudhary Maqbool, Sardar Ibrahim and a large number of PPP workers welcomed the Information Minister at Sheranwal Bagh and showered rose petals on her. The workers were chanting slogans and carrying banners and placards inscribed with slogans in favour of the party leadership.

Azad Jammu and Kashmir President Raja Zulqarnain also accompanied the federal minister.
