LAHORE - Punjab Governor Latif Khosa said on Friday that the matter of any body not recognising an elected president made a fit case for high treason. It is plain and simple treason not to recognise an elected President as president, he said while addressing industrialists at a ceremony organised by All Pakistan Textile Manufacturing Association (APTMA) at the latters office to dispatch relief goods for flood affectees in Sindh. The Governor was commenting on Punjab Chief Ministers statement that he did not recognise Asif Ali Zardari as countrys president. Khosa said that Zardari had been elected as president with two-third majority of the Parliament and the four provincial assemblies; and not recognising him as president was tantamount to committing high treason. He said such statements might cause political instability and country could not make progress under such conditions. When asked to comment on SC verdict on Salmaan Taseer murder case and the ensuing protests by religious activists, he said judiciary was independent and they could appeal against the decision instead of coming on roads. Talking about protests over laodshedding, Khosa said that he was ready to join Oppositions demonstrations if shortage of electricity could be overcome in this way. He said those doing negative politics should play positive role to help resolve problems facing the country. Earlier, the Governor dispatched 10 truck-loads of relief goods arranged by APTMA, sufficient enough to cater needs of over 2000 families affected by the floods. Chairman, APTMA, Goahr Ejaz said on the occasion that his organisation will continue to dispatch relief goods till complete rehabilitation of the affectees.
