ISLAMABAD - The central leadership of Pakistan People's Party has decided not to go on confrontational course in Punjab and in the next couple of days Punjab Governor Sardar Latif Khan Khosa would give his assent to the summary of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to oust PPP ministers from the provincial cabinet. It transpired in the light of the background interviews with some key political figures in the Pakistan People's Party and the information shared by the party sources that PPP would not go for confrontation with PML-N in Punjab right now and would sit on opposition benches to watch the post-breakup stance of PML-N towards them. Although Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif had turned down the request of Premier Gilani, when they met a day before PML-N announced parting ways with PPP in Punjab, for not taking extreme step and let the PPP ministers stay in the Punjab Government for some more time, yet even then PM Gilani was one of the strong supporters of the notion to continue with the politics of reconciliation and consensus. The sources informed that Premier Gilani had a detailed telephonic conversation with President Asif Ali Zardari on the issue and he was also sharing the same views and had directed the Governor Punjab to go by the book and avoid to create any unconstitutional hitch while dealing with the summary forwarded by the Punjab Chief Minister dealing with the ouster of PPP ministers from Punjab Cabinet. The sources in Pakistan People's Party further informed that there was a big group of hawks in the party who wanted to pay back the PML-N in same coin in Punjab, but so far the sanity had prevailed and both the President and Prime Minister Gilani had directed the party leaders and activists to rein in their horses and not to create bad taste with their breakaway coalition partner in Punjab. The sources in PPP informed that certain elements in the party were in favour of entangling PML-N in legal battle and invoking Article 63-A over the alleged horse-trading by N-League to maintain their majority by including a breakaway faction of PML-Q, but another group in the party was of the view that instead of entering into some sort of political tussle with PML-N the party should continue with its policy of reconciliation and consensus. A source in the PPP informed that Governor Punjab Khosa was given clear instruction by the party President Asif Ali Zardari to fulfil his constitutional and legal obligation and not enter into some undue tussle with PML-N in Punjab as its fallout would be disastrous and could engulf the whole political dispensation. The sources in the party informed that Co-Chairman PPP President Asif Ali Zardari would be calling the Central Executive Committee and Core Committee meetings shortly to define the future course of the party in this changed scenario, which mainly depends on handling of things by PML-N both in Punjab and Centre.
