ISLAMABAD Serious differences within the ruling parties over host of issues are likely to hurt efforts of the Prime Minister Gilani to convene an All Parties Conference (APC) to discuss the recent devastation caused by the floods, sources said on Monday. According to sources, there is a greater likelihood that Premier Gilani may drop the proposal to convene APC because of differences within the ruling coalition partners including ANP, MQM and JUI-F, and it is feared that event might cause further division within the parties once the PM starts consultation process. Sources were of the view that the proposed APC was a belated initiative, therefore, it has no utility except that PPP might take on board all those political forces, which had boycotted the last general elections, to pretend that the major ruling party genuinely believed in the national reconciliation. Sources maintained that the proposed APC had lost its significance after meeting of Council of Common Interest (CCI) Monday, which took major decisions with regard to rehabilitation of flood-affected people, reconstruction of the affected areas as well as utilisation of foreign humanitarian judiciously and transparently. Major opposition party, PML-N, has already expressed its reservations about the proposed APC, saying it was too late to convene a moot.
