Sukkur, Nov 30 (ANI): Dr Arbab Ghulam Rahim, the President of the Sindh Chapter of the Pakistan Muslim League-Q, has said that the participation of former Pakistan Prime Ministers Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif in the January 8 general elections would not bring about any major change in the country’s political scenario.
“No major change will occur in the political scenario after former premiers Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif have been allowed to participate in the January polls,” The News quoted Rahim, as saying.
The former chief minister said it had become a hobby of the opposition parties to level allegations of pre-poll rigging, adding that the people would cast votes on the basis of performance and not political jugglery.
There were no differences among the PML-Q leadership, neither with the party allies, Rahim said.
He expressed confidence that the PML-Q would win the elections by carving out a joint strategy with its allies.
However, he conceded that a few party colleagues had some reservations over the distribution of party tickets.
Maintaining that President Pervez Musharraf believed in democracy and wanted to promote democratic institutions, Rahim said: “The proof of the fact is that the assemblies completed their tenures, the president doffed military uniform and took oath as a civilian president.” (ANI)
