NAWAZ SHARIF WANTS TO FORM GREATER PUNJAB -Benazir Bhutto




NAWAZ SHARIF WANTS TO FORM GREATER PUNJAB -Benazir Bhutto
  The Communists of this side of the Greater Punjab have in the past made many futile attempts to attract the Punjabis across 'Barbed Wire Border'. Sometimes back they met at Wagah Border with candles in their hands but no Pakistani Punjabi turned up to greet them. The press on this side reported that the West Punjabis do not have any such likings like the unity of the Punjabis. Some of the communists here formed an organisation to promote thd unity under the banner of Raja Porus Unity, again to receive only a lukewarm response.
 All this did not mean that the Punjabis on the cither side are not feeling the pangs of separation of half a century. ln the March issue of Punjab Monitor we carried an interview of a Swedish national who prophesized that there is bound to be free movement between the two Punjabs. We surely are for the , unity of the Punjabis but within the frame work of their respective constitutions of  the two countries.
Lo and behold ! ln the middle of March there appeared an lslamabad datelined news item on the TVs and newspapers 'that the former Prime Minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto had alleged that the present Prime Minister Mr. Nawaz Sharif had secret plans to form the ' Greater Punjab ' - in collision with Khalistanis. She alleged that Nawaz was bent upon damaging the Pakistan and that Nawaz might repeat 1971 when one wing of the Pakistan was clipped.
Mrs. Bhutto has already condemned the election of a Punjabi as President of Pakistan.lt is reminded here that Prime Minister Nawaz and the chief of the Pakistan army are already Punjabis.
Mrs. Bhtitto had pulled up even the MQM (Muhazar Qaumi Movement ) and Awami Nationalist Party that they have ignored the Punjabi bias in the plans of Sharif and that it is ignorance on the part of these two parties who are  supporting Sharif not with standing.
Nawaz who defended his policy responding to the allegations within 24 hours of their hurling said it was alleged that it was infact Mrs.Bhutto herself who has created a situation like that of 1971. He alleged that the Bangladesh people were in fact compelled to the recourse they took in 1971. He said, "Despite the 1970 elections the Bangla people were deprived of their rule." He said it was all of a part of conspiracy.
Mr. Nawaz said that similar conditions were created in Karachi before he took over. People of Karachi were suppressed and murdered. So much so in 1995 alone at least 2000 'muhazirs' (Migrants ) were troubled.
 It is immensely important that the positive move of any of the Pakistan PM is being deplored, suspected and coloured in the blue of Khalistani colours.
