Aitzaz says not in Punjab Governor’s race

LAHORE: Former president of Supreme Court Bar Association and Pakistan Peoples Party leader Aitzaz Ahsan on Thursday ruled out his candidature for the slot of Punjab Governor.

Talking to media after Qul of Salman Taseer at Governor House, he said the President, the Prime Minister and the party would decide about the new governor, adding more suitable personalities were available in the province for the slot and he was not in the race. To a question about the murder of Salman Taseer, he said that all investigation departments should jointly investigate the case and it should be transparent.
“The murder should not be termed in any other manner before the result of the investigations,” he added.
He said that element of violence was increasing in politics, which had started during the era of General Ziaul Haq.
He said that violence and suicide attacks on mosques, Imambarghas, churches and other worship places were growing, and expressed his apprehension that some elements wanted to destroy the state. “Some foreign agencies are destabilising the country through anti-state activities in Balochistan,” he added. He said that tolerance introduced by ‘Soofis and Aulia’ was recognition of this region which was now being eliminated. -Agencies
