Default PTI blocks Nato supplies - 11-23-2013, 07:15 PM

PTI blocks Nato supplies

By Tariq Butt November 24, 2013

ISLAMABAD: Imran Khan led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) which rules Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) on Sunday blocked the Nato supplies to Afghanistan by holding a sit-in and demonstration at the Ring Road Peshawar.

“As we rule the KP, we will not allow the Nato supplies pass through this province unless CIA operated drone attacks are stopped,” Khan said while addressing a party gathering.

Hundreds waving party flags attended the rally.

However, the KP government stayed away from the protest as neither Chief Minister Pervez Khattak nor any of his ministers turned up there, obviously due to PTI’s policy. The Ring Road which is the main supply route for Nato and the Pak-Afghan border at Torkham was blocked to choke Nato supplies.

Security measures were taken to avoid any untoward situation.

Khan said PTI would mobilise people to block Nato supplies all over Pakistan in order to pressurise Washington to halt the drone campaign.

His coalition partner in the KP government, the Jamaat-e-Islami, announced at the sit-in, it will hold a rally in Lahore on Dec.9 and in Karachi later against the drone attacks.

The PTI chairman urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to become “leader” as the whole nation was ready to stand behind him.

He said there was no mention of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) strikes in the “chits” from which Sharif read during his meeting with US President Barack Obama.

On the other hand, he said, Sharif had assured that he would vigorously raise the issue with the American president.

The PTI chief said the prime minister doesn’t realise the extent of destruction caused in the KP by the anti-terror war.

He said more than six million people have been displaced, and hundreds of children orphaned.

“The nation is sick and tired of the anti-terror war and the damages brought by the predator strikes,” Khan said.

Imran was surrounded by KP police as he gave his speech. Aside from the symbolic protest (thousand PTI supporters on the streets), CM Khattak has used KP police to close down the NATO supply line in KP.

Few things to note. CM Khattak is expanding the KP police force. KP police force is under jurisdiction of KP provincial government.

Relentless resolve: NATO supply routes remain blocked as sit-in enters third month

By Umer Farooq
Published: January 22, 2014





PESHAWAR: It has been three months and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led sit-in against drone strikes in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) is still going strong as the Nato supply and withdrawal routes remain blocked.
The supply routes were blocked by the PTI and its coalition partners in the provincial government – the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and Awami Jamhoori Ittihad Pakistan (AJIP) – at two different locations in K-P initially. The sit-in is presently being held at Hayatabad Toll Plaza.
The PTI leadership has maintained that the blockade was meant to stop the US from carrying out drone strikes in Pakistan. They believe that the US is trying to sabotage the peace process.
“The party took the decision against America’s unlawful actions and [sit-ins] will continue till they stop the drone attacks,” said PTI’s central additional general secretary Saifullah Niazi. He added the federal government should take notice of this, claiming had the PTI been in power at the centre, they would have dealt with it earlier.
On Tuesday, the PTI’s youth wing led the sit-in at the toll plaza. It was attended by activists from the JI and AJIP. They protested against the drone strikes and chanted anti-US slogans, asking the government to follow resolutions passed against the drone attacks in the provincial and national assemblies.

Pakistanis continue to block NATO supply route

Supporters of the Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Party, which controls the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan, continue to block a supply route for the US-led NATO forces stationed in neighboring Afghanistan, Press TV reports.

The PTI activists, who are against the deadly US drone strikes in Pakistan, have blocked one of the main NATO routes on the outskirts of the province’s capital, Peshawar, since November 2013.
Protesters spend days and nights stopping all travelling trucks and checking them to ensure they are not carrying supplies for US-led forces in Afghanistan, before clearing them to pass through the province.
The continuation of the blockage comes as the protesters and their leaders in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have been under intense pressure from the European Union, Washington as well as the Pakistani government to open the supply line.
The blockade is also disrupting the withdrawal of heavy equipment of US-led forces from Afghanistan. Analysts say if the trend continues, Washington might have to leave behind much of heavy military equipment in Afghanistan.
The PTI members say US drones have killed thousands of innocent civilians and left their families in an endless mental trauma.
Jameel Abbasi, one of the PTI leaders, told Press TV correspondent in Pakistan that the route will remain cut off until the Americans stop drone attacks.
The government of Pakistan insists that it is making an all-out effort to stop the strikes.
Washington says the CIA-run drone strikes primarily kill Taliban militants who threaten the US-led forces in Afghanistan; however, casualty figures show that Pakistani civilians are often the victims of the non-UN-sanctioned attacks.
The slaughter of Pakistani civilians, including women and children, in US drone strikes has strained relations between Islamabad and Washington, and Pakistani officials have complained to the US administration on numerous occasions.
In September 2012, a report by the Stanford Law School and the New York University School of Law gave an alarming account of the effect that killer drone strikes have on ordinary people in Pakistan’s tribal areas.
“The number of ‘high-level’ targets killed as a percentage of total casualties is extremely low -- estimated at just two percent,” the report noted.
The United Nations says the US-operated drone strikes in Pakistan and some other countries pose a growing challenge to the rule of international law.
