LAHORE: Former law minister S. M. Zafar on Sunday warned that military intervention would become a minor issue if political parties did not take steps to eradicate corruption.
He expressed these views while speaking at a program entitled ‘Prevailing Situation and Responsibilities of Political Parties’ hosted by Mir Khalil ur Rehman Society here.
The manner in which political parties evolved a consensus on the issue of 18th Amendment, a similar approach should be adopted on the issue of Kalabagh dam, he opined.
“The political parties will now have to oust corrupt elements within their ranks by realizing their responsibilities,” he said.
Speaking on this occasion, Muslim League-Zia chief Ejaz ul Haq said those who removed Zia ul Haq’s name had also taken oath from the same constitution.
He said that passage of 18th Amendment would not solve the masses’ problems.
