Lawmakers demand probe into Kargil debacle PDF Print E-mail

ISLAMABAD, Jun 3 (APP): Parliamentarians on Tuesday demanded thorough probe into the debacle of Kargil issue and demanded the formation of a committee to look into the matter.

Speaking on a point of order, Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, MNA, told the Lower House of the Parliament that former Corps Commander Rawalpindi Lt.  Gen (Retd) Jamshed Gulzar Kiyani disclosed in a television interview that Mian Nawaz Sharif was kept in dark about Kargil debacle.

He said that the then Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif was not briefed about the Kargil issue and the then army authorities were responsible for this debacle.

Sardar Sadiq demanded that a committee headed by a judge should be constituted to probe into the issue that harmed the dignity of the nation.

He quoted Kiyani saying that the then Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif had nothing to do with the Kargil tragedy.

Sardar Sadiq also demanded that committee should be formed to probe into the matter and those responsible should be held accountable, adding that an adjournment motion would also be moved in this regard.

On a ponit of order Marvi Memon said the kerosene oil is being sold on the higher rates than prescribed by the government. She said the prescribed rate of the kerosene oil is Rs.41 while due to the shortage, it is being sold at Rs.68 in the local market.

Nawab Abdul Ghani, MNA, told the House that two of three power units in Sindh are still out of order. He said if these are restored, the load shedding would remarkably be reduced in Sindh province.

Jamshed Ahmed Dasti commented on the slow pace of construction work of Chenab Bridge where, he said a mammoth traffic blockade is witnessed.

He demanded that either the work should be completed soon or the contractor should be removed and punished.

Mohammed Ali Khan criticized the growing inflation of gas and power prices in Karachi and added that the increase in prices should equally be implemented across the country.

Mrs Plawasha told the House that about 315 employees of Dandot Cement have been expelled from their jobs without prior notice. She said the police are harassing the sacked employees, adding that the matter should be resolved at earliest.

Kashmala Tariq said the government should take effective steps to strengthen local government system. She said the local government system had shown positive effects in the execution of development projects and devolution of power.

Nawab Sher Waseer, MNA, criticized the slow pace of construction work of a bridge in Syed Pura. Due to this delay in the construction work, he said, the local population is suffering a lot.

Minister for Law, Justice and Human Rights Farooq H. Naek said that the amendment in police rules is the subject of interior ministry, adding that the ministry can proceed if the concerned province sends recommendation in this regard.

Speaking before the House, Fauzia Ijaz, MNA said the parliamentarians should focus on the matters of public interest like increase in power, water and flour crisis.
