HAFIZABAD - Pakistan Muslim League (Zia-ul-Haq) chief Ejazul Haq has accused the PPP of issuing thousands of licences of weapons and 72 of CNG filling stations on back dates during the last seven days of its tenure.

Talking to the local newsmen on telephone, he said the PPP wanted to bring a representative of the World Bank or the International Monetary Fund as caretaker prime minister of Pakistan and added that it was also taking dictation from the “outside”.

He said though the PPP government had completed five-year tenure, yet it had completely failed to resolve the problems like dearness, unemployment, loadshedding, lawlessness and had generated multiple problems for the masses which have crippled the economy of the country.

To a question, he said that the PPP and the PML-Q have started “flying” here and there to secure their seats. He expressed the hope that all the factions of Muslim Leagues would contest upcoming elections jointly and defeat the PPP candidates.
