Joint session of parliament on Kashmir begins

ISLAMABAD: The two-day joint session of the Parliament is underway in Islamabad to discuss the Indian violation of the Line of Control (LoC) and atrocities of the Indian troops in occupied Kashmir, ARY News reported.

National Assembly members and senators of all major political parties except Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) are attending the joint session today.

Resolutions against India’s LoC violations and claims of the surgical strikes against Pakistan is likely to be passed by the parliament.

PTI boycott

Imran Khan led PTI has decided to boycott the joint session of the parliament.

Chairman PTI talking to media yesterday said that the joint session will result in nothing substantial except for “endorsing Nawaz Sharif as Prime Minister who has lost all moral authority”.

“We will continue our National Assembly boycott till either Nawaz Sharif resigns or presents himself for accountability according to the Terms of References (TORs) decided by the opposition,” he said.

He said the purpose of the joint session was to convey a message that the whole nation is united against Indian aggression and we already stand with Kashmiris.

Imran said despite reservations PTI sent Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Dr Shireen Mazari on Monday at the All Parties Conference (APC) for national unity and to convey a strong message to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He said “we feel that attending the joint session tomorrow would mean giving legitimacy to Nawaz Sharif as prime minister; hence, we will boycott”.

The PTI chief said Nawaz Sharif should resign and some other Pakistan Muslim League-N leader become prime minister as Nawaz has lost legitimacy to stay PM.

“They want to play on the Kashmir issue and use it to cover up the Panama Leaks. It has been six months since Nawaz Sharif has not answered the parliament,” he said.

    India is playing perfect practical politics by issuing fillers like surgical strikes then withdraw, sorry etc, in front of real attack on Pakistan and Azad Kashmir, while Pakistan is busy in paper meetings like APC, parliament meetings etc with the stupid assumption that APC made India to surrender military strikes, and Parliament meeting with honest speaker, angel Prime minister, ministers and darwaesh type members will make India merged in Pakistan.

    Please stop dramas of APC and Parliament meeting to weaken protest against Nawaz / Zardari corruption, and do something practical and meaningful against India.

    Frankly the value of Parliament is non-existent because the leader of this house is a corrupt .. which has affected the very prestige and honor of the house. For most Pakistanis, the parliament is a total disappointment, corrupt and promotes nepotism, favoritism, harbors corruption; protects criminals at the cost of the country.

    Pakistan Parliament (a democratic torture cell with dishonest speaker and corrupt and illiterate leaders) is the platform of Nawaz / Zardari to make public fool in the name of demo-crazy to avoid army coup..

    Opposition parties cry more on not attending PTI in parliament and no such huge cry and left PTI alone when PTI was against corruption of Nawaz, sensing Zardari and other opposition parties leaders will be the next.

    Imran step was perfect in all respect to expose inside strategy of corrupt PPP.
