PML-N leader Mian Nawaz Sharif meeting with Dr Qadir Magsi

PML-N leader Mian Nawaz Sharif has said his party gives equal importance to all provinces of Pakistan and that his agenda is similar to that of the nationalist political parties of Sindh. "Provincial autonomy, new provinces and other important issues should be considered anew," Shairf suggested at a press conference during his visit to the residence of Sindh Taraqi Pasand Party (STP) chief Qadir Magsi here on Tuesday. Sharif called for accountability of all those who subverted the country's laws and constitution with impunity and denied rights to the marginalized communities and autonomy to the provinces. "Such men whether they are in positions of authority should be brought to book," Sharif said. The PML-N chief emphasized implementation of the resolution passed by the parliament in connection with Abbottabad incident on May 2 in which US commandos killed Osama Bin Laden. "It's an issue of our sovereignty. Government should take a firm action," he added. Sharif said his party had the same manifesto as that of the nationalist leaders he met here. "We talk about rights of poor people, minorities and autonomy for provinces," he explained. Sharif said his party began to distribute land to poor peasants in Sindh and made access to justice easier during his two stints in the government. "Our many development plans remained incomplete," S, adding had his government been allowed to continue, the issues of Sindh and Balochistan would have been resolved. He blamed judiciary of legitimizing coups of adventurer generals in the past. When queried for his party's stance on creation of new provinces, Sharif proposed that an academic dialogue should be held on the matter. "I am not against new provinces as smaller administrations are able to perform better," he added. He praised nationalist leaders for their struggle for the province's rights and said all cultures should be proud of their languages and vibrant traditions. The PML-N leader also called on Rasool Bux Palijo, president Awami Tehreek, at his residence earlier in the morning. The two leaders talked about issues of mutual importance. Talking to media after the meeting, they said the two parties would cooperate with each other on the issues which concern the both. Sharif said the province should have rights over its natural resources and that fairness should be ensured in distribution of water. "Denying admissions in Karachi's educational institutions to youth of interior Sindh is not acceptable," he said. On the occasion, MNA Khwaja Saad Rafique said the purpose of Sharif's visit was to make new alliances in the province.
