PML-N to move resolution for committee on Balochistan
02 October, 2012
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) will table a resolution in the next session of the National Assembly to form a committee on Balochistan comprising representatives of all political parties.
The party would also move a resolution seeking monthly revision of petroleum products against the current practice of weekly fluctuation in the prices of these products, opposition leader in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan stated at a press conference at the Punjab House on Monday.
Nisar said the objective of the all-parties committee was to bring all estranged Baloch leaders to table to resolve the issue of Balochistan.
He said Sardar Akhtar Mengal' six points were within the parameters of federation, compared to the six points presented by Sheikh Mujeeb before the debacle of East Pakistan. "I don't see anything against the federation in these points," he said. About the other resolution regarding the petroleum prices, the opposition leader said that figures presented by the government were "a pack of lies" and vowed to bring forth the real figures on petroleum prices.
Nisar also sounded optimistic about the success of his party in Sindh and disclosed that a broader political alliance was going to be formed in the province, adding that the alliance would uproot the ruling Pakistan People's Party (PPP) from its stronghold as well as in other provinces.
The PML-N leader, who recently developed differences with JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman, also criticised the JUI-F chief without naming him.
