FAISALABAD: Irfan Siddiqui, advisor to Prime Minister on national history and literary heritage has said the final authority for deciding about the eligibility and disqualification of popular political leaders rests with the people.

“People are final authority for deciding about the eligibility or disqualification of the popular political leaders. Attempts for snatching these powers from the people had never met success in the past nor will these succeed in future”, he said this while addressing two days calligraphy exhibition and later talking to media men here Saturday.

He underlined the care taker government cannot influence the elections. In 2013 the care taker Prime Minister and care taker chief ministers were proposed by PPP but PPP had to suffer crushing defeat in the polls and PML-N emerged victorious.

He remarked all bids to block the people opinion will be doomed to failure because “vote ko izzat do” (sanctity of vote) slogan has become now a popular slogan.

He observed 40 years back a popular political leader was hanged. He is lying in the grave but he could not be disqualified, he added.

What credibility of fair, free and impartial polls will be left after showing the door to the most popular leader of the time out of electoral field, he questioned.
