LAHORE – Punjab is facing more loadshedding than other provinces, while the federal government being the symbol of federation should dispel this notion by taking immediate steps to create harmony among the federating units, says senior PTI leader Khursheed Mehmood Kasuri. He expressed these views while talking to a group of journalists at his residence on Wednesday. “PPP-led government has failed to develop consensus over disputed water reservoirs, especially the Kalabagh dam, which is vital for meeting the energy needs of the country”, Kasuri added. Kasuri said that PTI was devising an energy policy, which include construction of water reservoirs, however it will leave no stone unturned to build consensus on the disputed dams focusing the Kalabagh dam. Commenting over the PPP’s row with the superior judiciary, he observed that confrontation with judiciary never prove beneficial for any sitting government, as Pervez Musharraf government had to face the serious implications of confrontation with judiciary, while attack on the Supreme Court during the PML-N government had also damaged Nawaz Sharif. Kasuri remarked that the aggressive attitude of the PPP against the judiciary establishes the fact that it was not in the mood of sorting things out, which would ultimately damage the interests of the nation and country. The PTI leader advised the PPP leadership for not using the issue of CJP’s son for political reasons. Talking about the PML-N leader’s allegation regarding alleged misappropriation of funds of Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust Hospital, he said that the PML-N should not drag a charity organisation into politics. Kasuri, who is also former foreign minister, said Pakistan had to play a vital role in the endgame of Afghanistan, however it could not play this role as the international powers did not believe that a weak government can be able to fulfill its obligations regarding the challenges of Afghanistan. He said only a self reliant government could practice an independent foreign policy, which unfortunately doesn’t exist at the moment. Commenting over the possibilities of early polls, he said that there was an extra-ordinary situation in the country at the moment, which demands conduct of snap polls. He advised the government to take all political parties on board, especially those not part of the parliament. Kasuri added that PTI will resist an un-consulted caretaker set up, however it will not boycott the next polls.
