‘PPP is not supporting PTI or PAT’ : Faisal Karim Kundi


PESHAWAR: The Pakistan Peoples’ Party is not supporting the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s  ‘Azadi March’ or Pakistan Awami Tehrik leader Tahirul Qadri’s ‘inqilaab’, party leader Faisal Karim Kundi said on Tuesday.

The former Deputy Speaker National Assembly said the PPP will not be a part of any movement aimed at derailing the country’s democratic system and urged Imran Khan to postpone his long march on August 14, saying it was a day for national unity.

The PPP leader said dharnas (sit-ins) and long marches are part of the democratic system but must be carried out within a constitutional ambit.

Kundi said there was ‘no harm’ in the government giving in to Imran Khan’s demand for a recount in four constituencies. He said the formation of a committee on election reforms is a positive step and urged PTI to put forward reservations and suggestions to the Electoral Reforms Committee.

“The president, prime minister or ministers cannot influence the election commission or order the recounting of votes in any constituency and the ECP is an independent body to take a decision in this regard,” Kundi said.

PPP RELIEF PACKAGE: Eid Gifts for IDPs on Bilawal Bhutto directives

KARACHI, July 22: On the directives of Patron-In-Chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Pakistan Peoples Party plans to send another round of trucks carrying Eid gifts for the IDPs in Bannu ahead of Eidul Fitr.

“As a Party having strong roots in every nook and corner of the country and the worst victim of terrorism, the PPP cannot remain aloof from the sufferings of our heroes and countrymen,” said a statement from Media Cell Bilawal House.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has also directed that every Party worker must share some kind of joys with the IDPs on the occasion of Eid to fortify them belief in Pakistani nationalism.

It may be recalled that PPP had send a large volume of relief goods through a convoy of trucks to IDPs last week and former Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah, Central Information Secretary Qamaruz Zaman Kaira, former Deputy Speaker National Assembly Faisal Karim Kundi and other members of the PPP Relief Committee personally distributed and monitored the distribution in relief camp in Bannu.

Patron-In-Chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had constituted a 9-member PPP Committee for Relief headed by Khursheed Shah to arrange relief for the IDPs while all the Parliamentarians of the Party announced their one-month salary as donation for the relief funds.

Besides, the Party cadres were mobilized all over the country to collect relief goods. PPP-lead Sindh government has already extended a cash donation of Rs150 million to Federal and KPK governments for relief pool.

PPP wants powers to legislate on FATA transferred to parliament


ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) wants the National Assembly and Senate to legislate on the Federally Administrated Tribal Areas (FATA), which has been severely hit by wave of terrorism and consequent military operation, in the last few years.

The opposition party made the demand in a resolution that it submitted in the National Assembly Secretariat, to be taken up in the upcoming session of the House, which is scheduled to meet after Eid. “All legislation on FATA should be undertaken by the legislative assemblies i.e. the National Assembly and the Senate,” the resolution reads, which was signed by MNAs Dr Azra Fazal Pechuho, Dr Nafisa Shah, Shazia Atta Marri and Syed Naveed Qamar.

Presently legislative and executive powers for the region are with the president and, per extension, his representative, the governor of KP, and the political agents, while elected representatives of the area in parliament have no say in these matters.

It may be recalled that the same demand was also made by the European Union (EU) when it presented its observation report on 2013 election conducted in May last year and noted that elected representatives of these areas are not empowered to legislate for their people in parliament.

Furthermore, the opposition also submitted a calling attention notice and adjournment motion in the National Assembly Secretariat on Monday. The calling attention notice of the party regarding urban air pollution was mitted by MNAs Azra Fazal Pechuho, Beelam Hasnain, Imran Zafar Leghari, Mir Shabbir Ali Bijarani and Shahida Rehmani.

“According to a recent report released by the World Bank titled; ‘Cleaning Pakistan’s air’, Pakistan’s urban air pollution is among the most severe in the world and it engenders significant damage to human health and the economy,” the notice read.

PPP said that since this matter is of urgent public importance, therefore it should be raised immediately on the floor of the House. An adjournment motion regarding the recent retrenchment at PIA was submitted by MNAs Syed Naveed Qamar, Ghulam Mustafa Shah, Mohammad Ayaz Soomro, Ijaz Hussain Jakhrani and Ehsanur Rehman Mazari.

PPP takes exception to P.M. Nawaz Sahrif’s Saudi Arabia tour


LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Punjab Secretary General Tanvir Ashraf Kaira has said that Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif’s visit to Saudi Arabia shows his non-seriousness on internal national issues, especially the ongoing Zarb-e-Azb military operation in North Waziristan Agency.
In a statement on Tuesday, the PPP leader said that Prime Minister Nawaz was away on a foreign tour for about two weeks suggesting that pressing problems facing the country at present do not deserve his constant attention and physical presence in the country.
He said that Pakistan was fighting the war of its survival and its PM’s absence from the country for a longer period of time could not be condoned by any measure. “This cannot be justified when the country is in a state of war because the scourge of terrorism and extremism is a grave threat to the security of the country,” he added.
He said that the performance of religious rituals was important but the PM should return to the country after a couple of days and give direction to deal with the emerging situation as the country was fighting a war that needed his presence to take immediate important decisions regarding the ongoing military operation.
Kaira opined that the PM’s departure reportedly for two weeks to a foreign country also gives the impression of his abdication of responsibilities to very important national issues with deep-rooted implications for the security of the country.
He suggested that the PM should cut short his visit and come back to assume the leading role of taking decisions because he was the elected chief executive of the country and accountable to the people and the Parliament.
Kaira said that issues of internally displaced persons, electricity outages, poverty and non-availability of civic amenities to the people had made their lives miserable and the PM was required to assure them with full seriousness that he was cognisant of their plight and was taking concrete steps to mitigate their sufferings.
Kaira also observed that Prime Minister Nawaz’s absence from the country would not bode well for the people whose hopes of better days during this government were dwindling fast.
