Opposition parties oppose move to reopen NATO supply route

Islamabad, May 17, IRNA – Major opposition parties in Pakistan have warned the government against reopening of NATO supplies saying the entire nation is united against such a decision.

Jamaat-i-Islami chief Munawar Hasan has opposed in strongest words the possible restoration of NATO supply roads.
He said that it would be aimed at helping the enemies and amounted to committing political suicide and hinted at launching a campaign against the move.
The JI chief demanded that the government implement in letter and spirit the resolutions unanimously adopted by parliament.
The Defense of Pakistan Council (DPC) has also decided to hold a meeting in Lahore on May 19 to chalk out its plan for action.
Lt-Gen (retd) Hamid Gul, a senior member of the DPC, said the government was bent upon dividing the nation and creating a state of anarchy through civil war. “We will not go for any violent agitation, but we will continue to inform the masses about truth and create awareness.”
He said the government was making lame excuses that the country could not survive economically or stand at the international forum without resuming the NATO supplies.
“These are falsified statements based on personnel agenda of policymakers,” he said, adding, “The masses are fed up wit imperialistic policies of the United States and they are looking towards the DPC to take the lead.”
A statement issued by the DPC said that aiding the aggressive US and NATO forces in their designs against Afghanistan and its Muslim population was religiously forbidden.
Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-N Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said in a TV interview that his party was against the move to resume NATO supplies.
“This is a shameful act and a sign of retreat for the entire nation,” he Nisar said, adding that if the government continued to move ahead with this agenda, his party would contact other parties and resist the move.
Chaudhry Nisar said the reopening of supply routes would be violation of a resolution adopted by parliament last month on new terms of engagements with the US.
Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Imran Khan has said that PTI would not allow federal government to sell Pakistanis for a few dollars.
While speaking to PTI’s strategic committee meeting in Islamabad, he reiterated that his party would strongly resist Nato supply restoration through Pakistan.
Khan said that PTI would hold countrywide protest against NATO supply routes restoration.
On the other hand a Pakistani panel of top civilian and military leaders has deferred a decision on restoration of NATO supply line, a cabinet minister and an official statement said.
Information Minister Qamar-uz-Zaman, who attended the meeting, told the media said that there would be more consultations before taking a final decision on restoration of NATO supply line.
