Monday, January 19, 2009

RAIWIND: Adviser to Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik called on PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif at the latter’s Raiwind residence here on Sunday to convey a `special message’ from President Asif Zardari and discuss a variety of issues ranging from the lawyers’ proposed long march to Punjab governor’s controversial statements; Sharifs’ disqualification case and the bills tabled by various political parties in the National Assembly for undoing the 17th Amendment.

The overall law and order situation in the country and Pakistan-India tensions in the wake of Mumbai attacks were also discussed in the meeting, which was also attended by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.

PML-N officials would not divulge any details of Mr Zardari’s message but claim that Mr Malik visited Raiwind to seek support of the Punjab government ‘in handling the proposed long march without any eventuality.' 'Mr Malik wants the PML-N to extend but only a symbolic support to the lawyers and avoid making it a big show in the wake of the deteriorating law and order situation and tensions on borders,' a party official said.
