ISLAMABAD – For the ongoing session of National Assembly, at least three major opposition parties – PPP, PML-Q and ANP – have joined hands and agreed to form a joint strategy to give hard time to federal interior minister CHaudhry Nisar Ali Khan while PTI and JI stayed away from any such alliance.
According to the details from country’s power corridors, the leader of opposition and senior member of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in National Assembly convened a joint meeting of all opposition parties where the said agreement was reached.
The other invitees were the parliamentary groups of Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q), Awami National Party (ANP), Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Jamat-e-Islami (JI). However, the coalition partners in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) stayed away from the meeting presided by Syed Khursheed Shah and never showed up.
According to the details, once again the joint alliance of opposition parties were planning to give hard time to the Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan. They termed his behavior on the floor as ‘inappropriate’. Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, once again, made a comment on opposition leader after he finished his speech that sparked an uproar in National Assembly on Monday.
Shah, while discussing other issues, stressed that a comprehensive explanation would be sought from the government over the following issues:
- On the reports that government is considering to send troops to Syria and Saudi Arabia.
- On receiving the $1.5 billion fund from Saudi Arabia. He said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should take the parliament in confidence over this issue.
- On the reports that government might send some retired military personnel to Syria to help train rebels.
- On the issue that Prime Minister has been ignoring the Senate (upper house of the parliament).
