ISLAMABAD - All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) leadership has criticised the rulers for implicating Armed Forces in the ongoing political tussle in the country and advised them to decide the political matters in a political fashion.

In a joint statement issued here on Sunday, party chief Pervez Musharraf, General Secretary Dr. Amjid and SVP Gen. (retd) Rashid Qureshi termed it unfortunate and grilled the rulers for confusing the situation by dragging Army in the political imbroglio to cover up their political failure to resolve the issue.

They said that the political parties sitting in the Parliament were busy settling their personal scores against each other and were least bothered to resolve the issue at an

urgent basis.

They said that the ruling PML-N was not doing any service to democracy or Parliament but they were busy saving the chair of Premier Sharif and that was the reason they were even not ready to listen to the genuine demands of the protesters.

The APML leaders condemned the killing of Ghulam Abbas Kamili’s son and termed it a nefarious effort to spread sectarian hatred in the country at a time when operation Zarb-e-Azb by the Pakistan Army is continuing in North Waziristan against terrorists.

They urged people from all schools of thought to maintain their unity and foil the plan of the enemy to create chaos in the country and damage the operation against terrorists. They said this murder is a coward act of sabotaging the successes gained in the operation against terrorists.

They also said that the government was destroying the country’s economy through its inefficiency at a time when the country is confronted with the calamity of floods. It said that for the first time in the country’s history two political parties are staging sit-in in Islamabad while the government has failed to resolve the issue politically and is bent upon resolving the issue through the use of force.

The APML leaders said no concrete measure has been taken in the Parliament to resolve the issue of sit-ins and political leaders have been doing nothing except mudslinging and character assassination of others. They asked the government to send back the Punjab and Azad Kashmir Police to their respective areas so that they could play their role in mitigating the miseries of people in the flood situation.

Musharraf also directed all the party activists to help the flood affected people in their respective areas.
