MQM demands imposition of emergency in Pakistan
20 February, 2014
ISLAMABAD: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Nabeel Gabol on Wednesday has demanded to impose emergency in the country to improve law and order situation.
During a meeting of the National Assembly standing committee for Interior, he demanded the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to impose emergency as per Article 232 of the constitution.
Gabol reacted aggressively over the ongoing dialogue process with the Taliban and said it should be halted. He said the country was in a state of war and there was no question for peace talks with Taliban.
He said that the Taliban was not ready to stop terror activities in the country and government should stop the dialogue process and initiate military operation against the terrorists.
He said since the start of peace process, the other side (Taliban) was sending bodies as 'peace gesture'.
Nabeel Gabol made it clear that he did not want Musharraf-style emergency in the country, saying he just wanted that the current situation be given top priority.
Whereas Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) rejected the demand during the meeting.
