Fata reforms: PM Abbasi chairs parliamentary meeting

Fata reforms: PM Abbasi chairs parliamentary meeting

The Mumbai terror attack is the worst kept secret in Pakistan as everybody knows that it was carried out by terror groups nurtured on their soil and the entire operation was directed by non-state actors.

In the other resolutions, PTI lawmaker Arif Abbasi said: "Sharif's statement on Mumbai attack has created problems for Pakistan internationally."It also demanded constitution of a joint investigation team (JIT) to probe his business links with Indian steel tycoon Jindal".

Sources said he couldn't appear before the Committee because of his prior commitments and asked the parliamentary body to reschedule his appearance, allowing significant time so that he could turn up to testify before it.

"Pakistan is not becoming isolated, it is already isolated".

Stating that the NSC dismissed those words which were misreported, Abbasi said the meeting did not condemn Sharif but incorrect reporting of his interview.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi chaired on Monday a parliamentary meeting pertaining to the merger of Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) with Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

The siding on the two-story building's walls and the entire bottom floor were blown out, and windows had been shattered. The investigation is still in its early stage and authorities had begun processing the inside of the building, he said.

Sharif, as per an exclusive Dawn news report, in that meeting had raised the issue of Pakistan's growing global isolation because of behind-the-scenes support by military to banned terror groups, including Jaish-e-Muhammad, Jamaat-ud-Dawa and the Haqqani Network. "Tell me which country stands with us, is there any?" he asked. He was responding to being termed a traitor by political opponents. He said that Sharif had accused him of withdrawing forces from Kargil.

The embattled former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday lashed out at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), saying it was a party which always looked towards umpire's finger.

In the last meeting, the Pakistan Peoples Party and PTI criticised the government for hasty implementation of the reforms approved by parliament about two years ago.

The remarks were widely quoted by Pakistani and worldwide media which interpreted the remarks as allegations on the military.

"Sharif's order to withdraw from Kargil was a wrong initiative", the ex-president said and added PML-N leader Zafarul Haq and PML-Q leader Chaudhry Shujaat had opposed the withdrawal.

The Lashker-e-Taiba militant group, founded by USA -wanted militant Hafiz Saeed, was blamed for the Mumbai massacre. Kasab was executed after a court found him guilty and handed down the death sentence.
