Pak senators want action against Musharraf for violating ConstitutionApril 22nd, 2009 - 12:39 pm ICT by ANI
Islamabad, Apr 22 (ANI): Members of Pakistan’s National Assembly have asked the Government to take action against former President Pervez Musharraf for violating the Constitution and recommended introduction of a comprehensive policy to control target killing across the country.
Jamashed Dasti of PPP said on Tuesday that parliament should initiate the trial of Pervez Musharraf for taking unconstitutional steps.
He said that Musharraf was moving freely in the country in spite of violating the constitution.
“The parliament should not play the role of a rubber stamp and take action against a dictator to set an example for others,” The Nation quoted Dasti, as saying.
Shereen Arshad Khan of the PML-N said on a point of order that the former dictator who violated the constitution was enjoying his life due to the government’s relaxation and instead of getting punishment, he was being granted official protocol.
Barjees Tahir of the PML-N said: “General (retired) Musharraf is offender of 170 million people and parliament should take action against him.”
Nadeem Afzal Chan urged the Interior Ministry to take notice of the ongoing target killing in the country and formulate an effective policy to control it.
He said that the government should call All Parties Conference to address the problems faced by the country.
Riaz Hussain Pirzada of PML-Q expressed grave concern over the institutions of the country and said that the political leadership proved itself to be a weak leadership. (ANI)
