  4. LAHORE: Railways Minister Saad Rafique on Saturday criticised the alliance of opposing parties demanding resignations from ruling party and said that no party can bring down the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). ?PPP, PTI and other groups can?t bring down PML-N,? he said while addressing media here.

Rafique's comments come amid the increasing calls for resignations from political opponents, the latest being demands for Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif to step down.

  5. LAHORE: Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif on Friday blamed the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf for the 22-month delay caused in the construction of the Orange Line Metro Train (OLMT) project. The chief minister was speaking to media in Lahore, shortly after the Supreme Court?s orders which cleared the way for completion of Orange Line Metro without any delay. The Supreme Court of Pakistan dismissed the decision of the Lahore High Court (LHC) halting work on selected sites of the Orange Line Metro Train (OLMT) project. "The PTI had submitted an application to the Supreme Court. Then, as hidden enemies strike, they did the same in the Lahore High Court. The revenge they have taken is not from me. They have taken revenge from the poor people of the city." The chief minister added that the project was to be inaugurated on Dec 25 according to the original plan. "But PTI and Imran Khan Niazi's team delayed the project for 22-months." He elaborated that the Lahore High Court (LHC) had a stay order for 14 months and the apex court announced its verdict eight months later. Shehbaz added that the PTI did not want the people to benefit from an efficient and cheap mass transit system. The apex court accepted the appeal of the Punjab government and others against the LHC decision with conditions and ruled by a 4-1 judgment that it observed no illegalities in the multi-billion rupee project. A five-member bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, had reserved its verdict in the case on April 17 this year. Although the apex court has allowed the Punjab government to go ahead with the project at the same speed, the bench has set 31 conditions to ensure the project's transparency. The conditions include strict monitoring of the construction as well as a dedicated trial period before train operations begin; placement of high-tech devices and hiring of expert monitors to ensure vibrations from the construction don't damage the heritage sites and various measures for the beautification and restoration of the sites. The apex court has also ordered the formation of a five-member experts' committee and three-member technical committee to oversee the project and ensure the protection of the heritage site under question. A Rs100 million fund will also be established by the government to maintain the heritage sites, according to the court order.

I was informed by the survivor?s uncle that Gandapur is protecting the suspects.? He remarked: ?I do not have any political rivalry against Gandapur.? When asked about all he has done for the survivor, Kundi said, ?I am fighting my provincial government to help the girl. The incident took place in my constituency; it is my political and social responsibility to resolve issues which emerge in my area of responsibility.? Earlier, while speaking to media via video link, party chair Imran Khan remarked called Dawar Kundi a "dissident", adding he "is an estranged member of the party. He is a liar. Kundi will be expelled from the party." Imran also said that Kundi has been making statements against the party as well as against the chief minister. "He doesn't even attend party meetings," he added. "If any member thinks that something is wrong then he should complain to the party leaders but he [Dawar] goes and speaks in front of the media." PTI to expel Dawar Kundi for levelling allegations against Gandapur, says Imran Kundi had alleged that Gandapur protected suspects involved in stripping, parading a 16-year-old in DI Khan Imran remarked that the party has a proper code of conduct regarding the issue and a disciplinary cell, which deals with such issues. Over the allegations against Gandapur, Imran said that "there are false.

Five years have passed since the Baldia Town incident that devoured lives of over 250 labourers but justice is yet to be serviced. geo_embedgallery Party leaders, including Dr Arif Alvi and Imran Ismael, said that the murderers should be punished regardless of their political affiliation, on on the fifth anniversary of the incident. The affected families demanded also that the individuals who orchestrated the incident be brought to justice. Five years on, relatives of Baldia factory fire long for justice The blaze erupted at Ali Enterprises on September 11, 2012, of which a case was registered a day after, declaring it a mishap Mothers of the deceased factory workers said that many [leaders] had lent emotional support but no one helped them in getting justice. The two men accused in the case, Abdul Rahman alias Bhola and Hammad Siddiqui, were arrested in December 2016 and October 2017. The blaze erupted at Ali Enterprises on September 11, 2012, and a case was registered a day after, declaring it a mishap. However, the case took a new turn when a political party worker, Rizwan Qureshi, revealed before a joint investigation team (JIT) that the fire did not break out accidentally, but was deliberately started by workers of a political party. The revelation shook the Sindh government and it ordered re-investigation into the case on March 26, 2015. A JIT was constituted to probe the incident, which recorded statements of 58 witnesses, including owners of the enterprise. Subsequent investigations revealed that the factory was deliberately set ablaze over non-payment of protection money. A political party had demanded Rs250 million protection money from owners of Ali Enterprises, the JIT report stated. The interim challan of the case was submitted to the court after four years, which stated that there were no evidence against the 13 individuals accused, including the factory owners. The JIT report put the entire blame on Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Hammad Siddiqui and sector in-charge Abdul Rehman alias Bhola. Rehman was later arrested from Bangkok in December 2016, but the investigations were delayed and justice for 259 lives continued to lie under a stack of files. Baldia factory fire accused Hammad Siddiqui can be extradited by next week: sources Legal formalities have been completed and documentation to bring the accused to Pakistan have been handed over to diplomatic officials, says sources Another prime suspect in the case, Hammad Siddiqui, was arrested in Dubai last month. Diplomatic sources, on November 6, said that legal formalities and documentation had been completed to bring Siddiqui to Pakistan.
  20. ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday reserved its verdict on a petition challenging Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf?s (PTI) intra-party elections. The commission said it would announce its verdict on Nov 28. The ECP reserved its verdict after hearing arguments from the counsel representing the petitioner and Babar Awan advocate, the counsel representing the PTI before the commission. During the proceedings, the petitioner?s lawyer told the ECP that the PTI had arranged fake intra-party polls in violation of the party constitution. He said the elections were held on June 12 and the party had amended its constitution on May 13. The petitioner counsel said that the PTI had not completed the necessary legal formalities while amending the constitution. He said the party?s constitution can only be changed if there is a two-thirds majority of the Central Executive Council supporting it. As per the amended constitution, 2.7 million voters had to decide between PTI Chairman Imran Khan or party leader Naik Muhammad Khan. No party member was allowed to choose anybody besides the two panels, the Insaf panel and the Ehtesab panel. Babar Awan, advocate, argued that the petition could not be heard by the ECP as intra-party elections could not be challenged via an election petition. He said that the petitioner had nothing to do with the PTI?s intra-party elections and that the elections were held in a transparent manner. Yousaf Ali, former general secretary of the PTI?s Swabi chapter, had filed the petition before the ECP and asked the commission to declare the election null and void on the grounds that the polling process had violated the party?s constitution.

Dar is currently in the United Kingdom to get treatment for a heart ailment, while PML-N leader elected from NA-120, Kulsoom Nawaz, is also there for cancer treatment.

While tweeting regarding the general elections of 2018, Rafique urged the two political parties to extend cooperation for the constitutional amendment bill ? on the delimitation of seats in the National Assembly ? so that the polls are held on time. He added that the constitutional amendment on the delimitation of seats was essential now that the population has been counted. According to Rafique, parties which had reservations with the constitutional amendment on delimitation were concerned about their representation in the 2018 General Elections. In earlier tweets, the minister stated that under delimitation, Punjab lost nine seats but the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz ? which rules the province ? did not object. While speaking about the census, the minister said it was the PML-N that took the initiative for an official population count. He added PPP did not take the responsibility to hold the census during its tenure. Moreover, he said, plans for the future could not be chalked out without updating the national database based on the latest census.
