Javed Latif says time of ‘reconciliation’ is over
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Mian Javed Latif was released from Kot Lakhpat Jail on Thursday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Talking to the media men on the occasion, Latif said it was strange that he was called a ‘traitor’.
But added he could not say ‘Pakistan Khapey’ so long as law of jungle persisted in the country; so long as medicines were out of the reach of common man, and where some people considered Pakistan as their property. “Pakistan of Madre Millat is my Pakistan,” he commented.
He said that time of ‘reconciliation’ with the country’s establishment was up. “The country’s constitution should hold sway,” he stressed.
PML-N leader said bringing ‘new’ Usman Buzdar in place of the old one would not be acceptable to the PML-N.
Latif urged the ‘establishment’ to guarantee there would be no more meddling in Pakistan’s politics.
He further said that although it took quite long for Punjab to wake up, but the good thing was that it had finally woken up to the ‘establishment’s’ role in politics.
PML-N leader further said that his ancestors had given refuge to the people who migrated from India after the partition. “But now I wonder is this the same Pakistan which was created in 1947,” he said.
A court in Lahore, on Wednesday, had ordered the release of PML-N leader Javed Latif on bail in anti-state speech case.
