PML-Q backs reopening of Bhutto case

SUKKUR: Pakistan Muslim League-Q secretary general Mushahid Hussain Sayed has said that his party supports the reference the president has filed in the Supreme Court for reopening of the Z.A. Bhutto case.

Talking to reporters at the Sukkur airport on Saturday, he said the PML-Q believed in people`s politics and not the politics of drawing rooms and it was playing an effective role in the country.

The PML-Q, he said, supported political reconciliation and its doors were open to all. He said the Muttahida Qaumi Movement had invited the PML-Q to participate in its public meeting in Lahore on Sunday, adding that there was no harm in attending the rally because good relations existed between the two parties.

He said the MQM`s plan to hold public meetings in Punjab was a good move, adding that federation would be strengthened through such activities.

In reply to a question about the sacking of Sindh Home Minister Dr Zulfiqar Mirza from Sindh cabinet, Mr Hussain said that it was an issue between the PPP and its ally, but it seemed he had been removed in the `larger national interest`.

He said the hanging of Mr Bhutto was a political murder and the PML-Q supported the PPP`s move for reopening of the Bhutto case. Criticising the government, he said it was busy in politics of revenge although it should focus on improving its governance.
