Govt plans to protect the corrupt, Sindhi Cap Day’ enthusiastically observed

Govt plans to protect the corrupt By Tariq Butt

ISLAMABAD: While the government may have leaked its intentions of not defending the infamous National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO), it clearly has no plans to abandon the NRO beneficiaries.

An impotent and toothless new law has been hastily drafted to protect the NRO tainted, whose cases would reopen instantly if the Supreme Court strikes down the NRO, as widely expected, in the high-profile cases being taken up by the 17-member bench today (Monday).

Sindhi Cap Day’ enthusiastically observed - The MQM Hyderabad zone arranged a programme where Sindhi caps were presented to journalists. A great number of party’s supporters and workers took out Sindhi Cap rallies. Similarly, thousands of PPP workers brought out many rallies. They danced to the tunes of traditional folk songs, chanted slogans in support of President Zardari, while some resorted to aerial firing all the way to the Hyderabad Press Club. Senator Maula Bakhsh Chandio, Sindh Minister Zahid Bhurguri and other leaders spoke on the occasion. Activists of Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz, Sindh National Party, Awami National Party, Sindh Taraqqi Pasand Party and Sindh Democratic Forum also brought out rallies.
