PESHAWAR: Mir Ghaus Bux Bizenjo, Governor of the NWFP, last night [Aug 12] called for an agreement between the two major political parties ... PPP and NAP — to determine the limits of co-operation and opposition. Addressing a public meeting, held to observe the martyrs day at Chowk Yadgar, he said such an agreement was imperative as the country could not afford a confrontation between its major political parties. Once the limits of opposition were determined, he said, it would be very easy to trace out as to who wanted disruption ... by backing out of the accord. Governor Bizenjo said it was not comprehensible that the four provinces continue to remain at loggerheads, thereby taking the country near ... disaster. — News agencies

[Meanwhile, as reported by news agencies in Rawalpindi,] The Government today [Aug 13] announced the lifting of the ban on the English language ... newspaper “The Sun”. Its order forfeiting the Press of the newspaper was also vacated. The ban was imposed ... following the publication of what was described as an incorrect and unauthorised version of the Sind Language Ordinance.
