LAHORE  – President Asif Ali Zardari’s Coordinator in Punjab Naveed Chaudhary has said that comments of Supreme Court Justice Jawwad S Khwaja that whenever he reads the constitution, respect for ZAB increases in his heart are golden words which will be remembered in history. Future generations will take guidance from the acknowledgement of facts, Naveed Chaudhary said while talking to APP on Sunday.

"These facts reflect that the PPP wants to be remembered in history and not in headlines," he added. He said demand for early elections showed that the opposition had not done positive work except highlighting non-issues.

After collective loss in by-polls of Multan, the opposition was trying to get political mileage by raising non-issues like early elections, he added. He said the by-polls had made it clear to everyone that the opposition was facing internal rift and lacked the ability to guide the nation towards betterment.

"No one other than the PPP is more willing to hold timely free, fair and impartial elections because it is the only party that had to face rigging in polls time and again," he said.

Naveed Chaudhry said the PPP was leading the country towards economic prosperity by protecting long-term interests of the nation under the leadership of President Zardari. Any coalition of anti-democratic elements could not block the way of the PPP as it wanted to restore the sanctity and prestige of vote and make it a tool to bring about change, he said.
