LAHORE - Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira on Tuesday said there was no linkage between the long march and the Supreme Court verdict because of their timings.”The situation in Islamabad should not be compared with that of Quetta”, he said while talking to media, adding, that media was creating hype on the issue of court verdict in rental power case. He said that the govt had not received the Supreme Court verdict as yet. Despite reports to the contrary, the Information Minister also sounded optimistic about continuity of the democratic system. “The democratic system would not get re-derailed and elections would be held on time”, he stressed.He said politicians and analysts had pointed out that there was a linkage between the court verdict and Dr. Qadri’s sit-in, but this may not be the situation. He, however, said that attempts to harm democratic system would be foiled. Responding to a question, he said Tahirul Qadri should register his party and participate in the elections if he wanted reforms in the system. “Dr Qadri’s demands are not in line with the Constitutional provisions”, he asserted, adding, that government would deal with the sit-in of Tahirul Qadri in accordance with the law.He said leaders of different political parties had already rejected the demands of Chief of Minhajul Quran Tahirul Qadri as unconstitutional and undemocratic.He said elections would be held on time and interim set up would be put in place after evolving consensus among all the stakeholders as provided in the Constitution. He also insisted that present government would complete its term. He dispelled the impression that an independent caretaker set up was an issue between two main political parties, stating that it was that of the whole Parliament. “The people of Pakistan hold political wisdom and they cannot be made fools”, he observed. He said that Tahir ul Qadri should care about the lives of the innocent children and women participating in the long march.
