PPP ticket for Jamshed Dasti


LETTER (May 16 2010): I was astounded to hear the Prime Minister say that although he was opposed to Jamshed Dasti getting the party ticket for the forthcoming bye-election, he had to agree because his party wanted it. I would like to ask Gilani why his party has such contempt for the parliament that it wants to fill it with known crooks?

Is the party superior to the parliament? Does he not know that elected representatives are also the law-makers? How can one expect a person who was found guilty of forging a degree be expected to understand the law? I also think it won't be long before we see convicted murderers and terrorists being given party tickets.
