The PPP has submitted adjournment motions in the Senate and the National Assembly on Friday demanding the immediate resignation of Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar.
The motions were filed following the release of the inquiry commission report on the Quetta Civil Hospital carnage. They were submitted in the National Assembly Secretariat and the Senate Secretariat.
“The people of Pakistan have been subjected to sustained terrorist attacks, which continue unabated, and deserve answers. Those who have failed the people of Pakistan need to be held accountable. Things can not go as they have been. Without top-tier accountability, it is unlikely systematic change will be possible,” read the motion filed in the National Assembly.
“This reaffirms our view that Minister of Interior is incapable or unable to play his role in combating terrorism and therefore, demand that he resign immediately,” added the adjournment motion.
The motion further added that an urgent debate is needed on the state of national security in light of the report by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
The motion submitted in the National Assembly was signed by PPP’s Nafisa Shah, Syed Naveed Qamar, Abdul Sattar Bachani and others.
In the motion submitted in the Senate, the PPP demanded discussion on the same subject by adjourning normal business of the house.
The motion in the Senate stated that the inquiry report presents a “damning indictment of the government’s commitment and execution of NAP”.
PPP’s Senator Sherry Rehman among other signed the motion submitted in the Senate.
