Tit for Tat: Govt objects opposition’s names for caretaker PM


ISLAMABAD: Federal Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira has said that the government has reservations over the names of Justice retired Nasir Aslam Zahid and Rasool Bakhsh Palejo as caretaker Prime Minister.

Talking to newsmen here‚ he said Justice Zahid will not be able to do justice with the PPP‚ as President Asif Ali Zardari was nominated in the murder of the former judge’s brother-in-law.

Kaira said the government is trying to create unanimity over caretaker setup and the today’s meeting between the Prime Minister and the four chief ministers are also aimed to reach a consensus on the matter.

The Minister said he is at a loss to understand the objections raised by Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly over names proposed by the Prime Minister for the slot of caretaker chief executive.
