'Political unity solution to problems PPP lawyers have said that the country can tide over the current problems through political unity, the national thinking and rising above the petty differences. They said taking forward the mission of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto they would guide the masses to meet the present day challenges. Former federal minister SM Masud, secretary Supreme Court Bar Association Shaukat Umar Peerzada, Shahid Mahmood Bhatti, the president Peoples Lawyers Forum (PLF) and others were speaking after oath taking of the newly elected body of the Forum here Tuesday. SM Masud underscored the need of plugging the way of martial law once and far and said, the institutional fight in the country has not only been paving the way of third force to intervene but the people have also been deprived of the due rights on account of that. He said we achieved the country after tremendous sacrifices but we failed to forge a nation mainly due to long military rules. Terming the present international situation totally different and difficult, he said, there is need to think how we can fit in this 'transcript when the world gets alarm of our nukes falling into the hands of extremists at the slightest move of the latter. He said, Pakistan exists at an extremely important geographical location and with this view in mind, America had decided to attack Afghanistan even before 9/11 took place, which revealed intentions of this power about this region. Masud said economic and independence of policy making as well as self-sufficiency are the key to meet these challenges. He said despite a democratic government the crisis is looming large and solution lies not with one party but in consensus and unity of all. Shaukat Umar Peerzada said PPP manifesto has a full-fledged programme for masses but the same has not been implemented yet. He said at present the condition of the nation is shaky and we need to rely on our own strength in every matter if we have to get out of it. Shahid Mahmood Bhatti said despite the PPP government in place, the old supporters, who have long history of giving sacrifices for the party, have been ignored. Bhatti regretted that the persons belonging to a certain chamber have been rewarded with the jobs of law officers and advisers regardless of the fact whether they have any affiliation with the PPP or have done anything for the party. He said he had decades old attachment with the party but those who had no footings in the party, are today questioning his affiliation. He said they stand by the mission of Bhutto and Benazir and would carry forward the motto of the party by reducing it into practice.
