LAHORE: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Qamar Zaman Kaira on Monday said following the Constitution was the only way through which Pakistan could be stabilized.

Speaking to media representatives after addressing the inaugural session of Centennial Celebrations of Pakistan Engineering Congress (1912-2012) at a local hotel, he said the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) government has resolved all basic problems while taking on board all segments of the society.

The PPP, he added, was the 'role model' for those trying to make a “Tehrir Square” in Pakistan, therefore, they must shun this urge, since the country's media, judiciary and election commission were enjoying full freedom.

To a question, Kaira advised Dr Tahirul Qadri to forward his recommendations to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) regarding electoral reform in the country, but must refrain from resorting to any unconstitutional move for attaining this purpose.

He said the PPP had no fear and apprehensions from Dr Tahirul Qadri or his party, adding that the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) was indeed an ally in the PPP-led democratic government but it was working in its domain.
