LAHORE: Former interior minister Rehman Malik says the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) will not hold large public meeting to avert loss of lives in bomb attacks.

He told reporters at the Lahore airport on Sunday, the PPP did not want to lose its leaders and workers in terror hits.

He said as Pakistan Muslim League-N Chief Nawaz Sharif enjoyed good relationship with Taliban, the militants overlooked PML-N election meetings while it was not the case with the PPP.

He alleged that proscribed outfit Lashkar-i-Jhangvi was involved in the recent Karachi blasts and had the Shahbaz government in Punjab acted against them, situation would have been different.

Responding to a query about the audio tapes involving the Sharifs and a Lahore High Court judge, he said he would launch a new tape on Monday (today) which the PML-N would fail to deny.

He said he would quit politics if the N-League proved that any of the tapes was bogus.

He said that billions of rupees were wasted on flop schemes like sasti roti.

PPP is avoiding the public because they have nothing to say. They were busy stealing from the country for the entire duration of their previous rule, and now they are hiding behind the excuse of security threats.

PPP has nothing to offer and cannot even count on their performance in the last five years. So such excuses by Rehman Malik will well be understood by people in the country.

Rehman Malik is no Mr. Clean either. After elections every politician should be tried by a tribunal, to set the record straight. The tribunal should consist of respected member of society, men and women.

PPP & PML-N have both taken turns in Government to loot and plunder Pakistan. Their leadership should be banned for life from contesting elections.
