ISLAMABAD: Violent demonstrations by two parties in the Federal Capital are the latest manifestation of mob power world over, aimed at creating anarchy and subverting democracy in the country.
“A democratically elected government is under siege by a violent minority whose leaders want to achieve by force, what they failed to do through the ballot box,” said Senator Haji Ghulam Ali of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F).
He opined that all political parties, judiciary and media had strongly resisted the undemocratic way of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awmi Tehreek.
“PTI chief Imran Khan is even being isolated by his own party members as he himself admitted split in the party,” he added.
Ghulam Ali said the PTI chief seemed to follow the agenda of some foreign elements. “He is acting upon someone else’s script,”he added.
He said it would have been better for Imran Khan to focus on governance in Khyber Pakhtunmhwa. “Around 80% of the KPK’s last year budget has lapsed, which shows that the provincial government has failed to deliver,” he added.
Political leaders were of the view that the dangerous phenomenon prevailing in the world to topple elected governments through mob power must be addressed seriously.
Senator Farah Aqil of Pakistan Awami National Party (ANP), while commenting upon the prevailing situation, opined that Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif needed the world to take a stand for democracy.
She said she was confused and unable to understand upon whose assurance the leaders of two protesting parties were telling their people that some happy news was about to come.
