On May 12, 2012, in Kamoo Shaheed, Pakistan peoples party(PPP) held the largest public procession in the country by any political party in four years time. It was a real tsunami for real revolution. Independent observers believe that it was estimated to be million people show.
Previously, on October, 18, 2007, it was also Pakistan Peoples Party(PPP), which gathered about 3.5 millions pakistanis to wellcome Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, to support democracy in Pakistan and to oust dictator from the country. It was largest ever public gathering in the history of Pakistan. Quantity of people was record high and we saw that in general elections 2008, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) emerged as victorious.
Yet, again, people have expressed their solidarity with PPP in Kamoo Shaheed on may 12, 2012. “Kamoo Shaheed (border of Sindh and south Punjab also called Siraikistan)- Millions of Pakistanis (estimated to be two millions) belonging to Sindh, Sarikistan, Punjab, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit Baltistan and other areas of Pakistan gathered in this area to express their support for democracy, in particular for the Pakistan Peoples Party and its leaders President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani.”
But question arises why two millions people came out in the favour of PM and current PPP government? I am not going to exaggeratre but fact is that current PPP government has resolved so many issues of our country. Though, there was no good for PPP, when PPP came in power.
During the general elections campaign PPP chairperson Shaheed Benazir Bhutto was murdered in cold blood, by forces who did not want to see democracy take root in the country. And then a new government was formed. However, now it is being targeted by an increasingly assertive media, judiciary and army. The frequent suo motu notices taken by the Supreme Court were putting the government in a very vulnerable situation where it constantly has to fight for its survival. Who restored the judiciary? Who settled the long- standing disagreements over the National Finance Commission? Who guaranteed provincial autonomy through the 18th Amendment? Who passed the 19th Amendment and 20th amendment? While some people say that these do not affect the common man in any tangible way, the effects of passing such
legislation is going to be positive for the country — though they may take effect in the long run.
PPP government has facilitated people and thousands of jobs have been created during its current tenure and people are very very happy with this current government. People of Pakistan believe that this is the peoples government, this is the reason why they have displayed show of power and people have announced their verdict on 12th may.
Prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani did not write letter to Swiss authorities to re-open graft cases against President of Pakistan, because President enjoys national and international immunity under the law under the constitution of Pakistan. So, he got convicted to uphlod constitution. Moreover, it is not written in In the detailed verdict of the Supreme Court (SC) that the Prime Minister (PM) Yousaf Raza Gilani step down or be removed from office or disqualified.
Only the political orphans demand his resignation. Infact, they are devoid of wisdom and they lack the wit to interpret SC detailed verdict, Two millions people public gathering and both houses’ resolution in the favour of PM. Political orphans should develop moral courage to face the realities, instead of pushing whole nation in trouble by highlighting/raising their own made issues.
