CPP Files Petition in the Supreme Court for Nationalization of All CNG Stations.
The Privatization Policy is a wrong and anti people policy – says Engineer Jameel
Only Socialism can solve the problems of people of our Country – Communist Party
(ATTOCK – December 04, 2012) Communist Party of Pakistan (CPP) through its Central Chairman, Engineer Jameel Ahmad Malik today filed and moved the Supreme Court for nationalization of all 4125 CNG Stations under Article 184(3) read with Articles 3 and 38 of the Constitution of Pakistan, 1973. The copy of whole petition can be read at CPP website of www.cpp.net.pk
Communist Party in its petition said that the unlawful strike and price hike of CNG by CNG mafias has made the life of downtrodden masses and public at large very miserable.
Engineer Jameel categorically stated in its petition that neither democracy nor dictatorship can solve the problems of our people; it is only the Socialism which can solve the problems of the people of our country.
A Troika consisting of Federal Government, CNG mafia and OGRA are in fact really responsible for the entire price hike in CNG and none of the political parties has moved any motion or resolution in the Parliament about the unlawful strike and price hike of CNG.
CPP said the action of both ruling and opposition parties in the Parliament on CNG crisis reminded us the famous quote of Karl Marx who said “The ruling élite, opposition, bourgeois and feudal class never goes for a political change that promote the rule of law in the society and they always opt and preferred for a status quo.”
CPP said that Privatization Policy is a wrong and anti people policy. In Pakistan, the net beneficiaries of privatization are always the global vested interests and their local agents and henchmen who get hefty commissions and kickbacks for these shoddy deals while the net sufferers are the poor people of Pakistan.
China is a socialist country and all the industries including pumps are owned by the Government itself and no members of the ruling élite of the Communist Party of China dares to loot and mint the money as our politicians in the ruling as well as in the opposition benches are doing and the prices of CNG or all others commodities are fixed by the Government of China itself.
The Supreme Court rightly interfered in fixing the price of CNG but instead of complying with the Orders of Court, the CNG mafias are openly defying the Orders of Court with the blessing of Federal and OGRA and are closing CNG Stations on baseless reasons.
In these circumstances, the CPP requested to Apex Court to nationalize all 4125 CNG Stations under the basic manifesto of PPP written by Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto under Articles 3 and 38(a) of the Constitution.
Communist leader mentioned in his petition that for Nationalization of CNG Stations, the Supreme Court as well Federal Government both has the jurisdiction to do that.
The power vested to Supreme Court is under Article 184(3) read with Article 3 and 38(a) of Constitution where the Federal Government consisting of PPP can enforce the basic manifesto of PPP about Nationalization written by Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in 1970’s.
Supreme Court is the right forum and if Supreme Court abstains from doing what is lawful and right, the Article 3 than becomes totally nugatory and redundant and this is against the basic spirit of the Constitution of Pakistan, 1973.
He maintained that all political parties in the Parliament are not playing any concrete and positive role against the abnormal price hike in CNG and in such circumstances, the SC is the right forum to decide all such like matters.
