ISLAMABAD-President Asif Ali Zardari said that Pakistan Peoples Party would not be cowed down by the lawyers' movement and told the Parliamentary Party meeting that he would himself handle the movement in his own way. Co-chairing the well-attended Parliamentary Party meeting at Aiwan-e-Sadr along with Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Monday night, President Zardari appeased his party MPs, who expressed grave concern about lawyers' movement, saying, "Don't worry about lawyers' movement and let me handle them my way." According to sources privy to the deliberations of the meeting, President Zardari spoke for about half an hour before the floor was given to the MPs, especially the new entrants in the Parliament, who had complained against the indifference meted out to them by ministers and the bureaucracy. President Zardari listened to them patiently and assigned the task of resolving the concerns of the party MPs to Syed Khurshid Shah, Federal Minister for Labour, Manpower and Overseas Pakistanis. He further announced holding of Parliamentary Party meeting every month on regular basis so that the complaints of the MPs and their concerns regarding the party policies could be addressed properly. A large number of MPs expressed their grave concern over the lawyers' movement and asked the party Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari to take corrective measures otherwise it could create problems for the government. PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari listened to them patiently and concluded the issue by saying, "Forget about the lawyers movement, let me handle it my way." He further said that Pakistan Peoples Party had a clear agenda about the independence of judiciary and they were evolving a mechanism wherein all the judges would be appointed on merit. President Zardari further said that the PPP was not deviating from its declared stand and was working for strengthening of the democratic institutions in the country. He said that there was no mention of timeframe for the implementation of Charter of Democracy in the country and once again reiterated to stand by the CoD signed with the major political forces in the country. He further said that PPP would not let the minority dictate it the way to run the Parliamentary democracy in the country and made it loud and clear that the party would not be cowed down by the political forces sitting in the opposition or the lawyers agitating on the streets. President Asif Ali Zardari said that Pakistan Peoples Party would not become part of any move harmful to the democratic system in the country. "And we expect the same from other political forces in the country," he observed. Responding to an MP's question, President Zardari said that the worst economic state had forced the government to take IMF loan. He expressed his optimism that country's financial managers would steer the country out of the prevailing crisis in due course of time. He also expressed satisfaction over the government measures to project the Pakistan's point of view, be it the aftermath of the Mumbai attacks or the continuous drone attack in the country's tribal area. He said that today Pakistan was not isolated in the comity of nations and the Friends of Pakistan were forthcoming to help the country handle the difficult situations on both economic and law and order fronts.
