In a written reply to Governor Salman Taseer, Chief Minister Punjab Mian Mohammed Shahbaz Sharif expressed disappointment over the former’s allegations on him and his party and termed them as baseless.
Shahbaz also called upon President, Prime Minister and Chief Election Commissioner Punjab for taking legal action against Taseer’s conduct. CM Punjab in his letter wrote that it is not the violation of the regulations laid down by EC to take part in electioneering as did by the Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah during election campaign of Jhang by-polls when he took part in the rallies of N-league’s candidate.
The fact is that Governor Salman Taseer took part in the electioneering of PPP’s contender under the pretext of inauguration ceremony of a Sui gas scheme in Jhang, terming the deed as the violation of Political Parties Act (PPA), Shahbaz wrote. Taseer was the member of pseudo cabinet of former president Gen Pervez Musharraf, which wrecked havoc with the constitution by sacking 63 judges and keeping them under house arrest illegally, he noted.
