Govt demonstrated vulnerability by inviting COAS at Presidency: Ch. Nisar.

ISLAMABAD, September 27, 2010 (Frontier Star): Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that the PPP government has demonstrated its vulnerability by inviting the Chief of the Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani at the President House on Monday when the apex court was hearing the NRO case. It is a regretful situation, the Army Chief has been invited at the Presidency when the Supreme Court of Pakistan was hearing a key constitutional case on NRO and they discussed the same issue in their meeting, Chaudhry Nisar told newsmen in an informal talk at the Parliament House. The Opposition Leader further said, it was a regretful situation, which reflects vulnerability of the incumbent government that Army Chief was invited to discuss the political situation, he said and added, by doing so, an impression has been given that the political leadership is incapable of dealing with any political situation. Chaudry Nisar called upon the need of strengthening the political setup and settling issues in the courts as well as in the Parliament instead of inviting the Army Chief to mend ways. He said the Supreme Court has given two-week time to the government in the NRO implementation case and added that if the government did not implement the courts order after lapse of this deadline, the entire responsibility of the eventuality would only rest on it. He emphasized that the government should abide by the constitution and implement the courts directives in letter and spirit. He said that the government has sought two weeks time from the apex court which was not a good omen on the part of the government. Pointing out the susceptibility of the ruling party, he further said now it would be incapable of getting approval of any controversial law from the parliament as it was also lacking the support of its allies under the prevailing political scenario. When his comments was sought on the assertion of the MQM Chief Altaf Hussain that powerful countries have conspired to eliminate him, Ch. Nisar said Altaf Hussain was a British citizen and what kind of thereat he posses from the United Kingdom and the United States, he poised a question. He avoided further comments on the question by saying he was not in light with the situation.
