PP,MC avoid proposals on paper
Constitutional Reforms In PaK
Muzaffarabad, Oct 10: Ruling People’s Party in Pakistan Administered Kashmir (PP-PaK) and its predecessor Muslim Conference have missed the deadline once again on submission of their proposals in writing to the parliamentary committee on reforms. They were supposed to submit the same by Wednesday. The deadline was earlier extended thrice.
However the main opposition Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and three other political parties and some civil society organisations have sent their recommendations to the 9-member committee which is scheduled to meet here on Thursday. On Tuesday the committee had held its second formal meeting chaired by minister for education (colleges) Matloob Inqilabi. Official sources said while the PML-N, MQM, Jammu Kashmir Peoples Party (JKPP) had already submitted their proposals on paper, Jamaat-i-Islami (JI-PaK) did it on Wednesday.
The MC avoided submitting proposals in black and white even on Wednesday although one of its representatives had sought one day’s respite for the same in Tuesday’s meeting, sources said.
Similarly the PP-PaK also eschewed submission of its suggestions in written form as Inqilabi had maintained the other day that his party would agree to the consensus proposals which would be forwarded to an ‘All Party Conference’ (APC) for final consideration.
On August 30, Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo had hosted an APC of almost all PaK leaders at his residence in Islamabad where it was agreed, in principle, to suitably amend the PaK’s Interim Constitution, commonly referred to as Act 1974.
It was announced that the political parties would give their recommendations to the parliamentary committee (constituted on March 29) which would recapitulate them within two months and present the same to the second sitting of APC for consideration and consensus, and the final draft would be tabled before the Legislative Assembly for approval.
Meanwhile in a brief statement Inqilabi maintained that the federal government would soon be taken into complete confidence on the issue of constitutional reforms.
