Opposition parties being contacted about accountability laws: Pervez Khattak
PESHAWAR: Defence Minister Pervez Khattak on Monday rejected rumors about arising of problems with allied parties as baseless and unfounded.
Addressing a Workers Convention in Peshawar, he said the government was having excellent relations with allied parties and result oriented meetings had been held with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P), Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) and Grand Democratic Alliance to address their reservations.
Pervez Khattak also outrightly rejected in-house change and said the government would complete its tenure and all those who were propagating rumors would fail.
“Contact has been made with opposition regarding accountability laws and all their suggestions and proposals would be considered,” he said.
About Kashmir issue, the defense minister said the nation fully supported Kashmiris in their just struggle for right of self-determination.
He said the disputed legislations introduced by the Modi government had unified minorities of India against the oppressive regime that would lead to its debacle.
On Feb 2, Chairman Senate Muhammad Sadiq Sanjrani had called on Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan’s leadership in Karachi and discussed matters pertaining to current political situation.
The chairman Senate had said that he was ready to meet anybody and to go everywhere in the interest of the country.
He had assured that the Federal Government’s Committee, formed to address reservations of allies, was working to resolve the issues raised by the MQM-P leadership.
On Jan 14, Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan had said all allied parties (including the MQM-P) under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan were united on the national agenda of the country’s development and public welfare.
