Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - SALIM AHMED LAHORE

—Pak­istan Mus­lim League (PML) leader and for­mer Deputy Prime Min­is­ter Ch Parvez Elahi has said that ally of Nawaz Sharif, Mah­mud Achakzai has vi­o­lated the Con­sti­tu­tion and oath in the Na­tional As­sem­bly by talk­ing against se­cu­rity and sol­i­dar­ity of Pak­istan as such ac­tion against him un­der Ar­ti­cle 6 is es­sen­tial be­cause this is a mat­ter of se­cu­rity and safe­guard­ing of Pak­istan.

Ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence along with Mian Muham­mad Munir and Azeemud­din Lakhvi here to­day, Elahi said that Pak­istan had played the great­est role in get­ting Afghanistan evac­u­ated from Rus­sian oc­cu­pa­tion dur­ing Zi­aul Haq regime, played host like broth­ers to 3 mil­lion Afghan refugees for 37 years, state­ment of Mah­mud Achakzai amounts to trea­son with blood of Pak­istani army jawans and the peo­ple who laid down their lives for lib­er­a­tion of Afghanistan, he had dis­played hos­til­ity to­wards Pak­istan by not con­demn­ing at­tack on the Ziarat res­i­dence of the Quaid-i-Azam and crit­i­ciz­ing Pak Army and Pak­istan over Pathankot at­tack whereas Mah­mud Achakzai, his fam­ily and all of us Pakistanis are to­day what we are be­cause of Pak­istan, this is his and our en­tity.

He said that Pak Afghan in­ter­na­tional bor­der is rec­og­nized by the en­tire world and the Supreme Court ver­dict is also there, UNO also had de­clared Afghans who had mi­grated to Pak­istan af­ter Rus­sian oc­cu­pa­tion as refugees be­cause Du­rand Line was the in­ter­na­tional bor­der, NATO con­tain­ers are checked on the bor­der.

Show­ing copies of the oath of Mah­mud Khan Achakzai as MNA and his brother Muham­mad Khan Achakzai as Gov­er­nor Balochis­tan, Ch Parvez Elahi said that it is clearly writ­ten in the oath that I will bear true faith and al­le­giance Pak­istan and al­ways work for se­cu­rity, sol­i­dar­ity and pros­per­ity of Pak­istan but Mah­mud Achakzai’s state­ment that Khy­ber Pukhtoonkhwah be­longs to Afgha­nis tan­ta­mount to break­ing of Pak­istan although his two broth­ers Ma­jeed Khan Achakzai and Hameed Khan Achakzai are both MPAs, one brother-in­law Spoze­mai Achakzai is MNA and other Has­san Man­zoor is DIG Mo­tor­ways, Mah­mud Khan Achakzai talks in the lan­guage of Delhi and Kabul, he is punch­ing the plate in which he eats.

De­scrib­ing the si­lence of Mah­mud Khan Achakzai’s ally Nawaz Sharif and his party as quite mean­ing­ful, Ch Parvez Elahi said that his (Mah­mud Achakzai) state­ment re­flects the mind­set of Nawaz Sharif govt, when Nawaz Sharif will FIR of Pathankot at­tack reg­is­tered in Gu­jran­wala then his ally will see Khy­ber Pukhtoonkhwah as of the Afgha­nis. He said Du­rand Line is the in­ter­na­tional bor­der since 1893, whole world has never termed it as con­tro­ver­sial, Pak-Afghan agree­ments also en­dorse it. He said why Mah­mud Achakzai is for­get­ting that af­ter Almighty Al­lah, Afghanistan has been saved be­cause of Pak­istan other­wise it had been oc­cu­pied by Rus­sia.

Re­spond­ing to ques­tions from the me­dia peo­ple, Ch Parvez Elahi said that poor pen­sion­ers are be­ing pushed around out­side the banks ahead of Eid in Pak­istan whereas Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif and his fam­ily is do­ing shop­ping in the costli­est stores of London.

Ear­lier, at the very out­set of his talk, Ch Parvez Elahi ex­pressed heart­felt grief and sor­row over losses of lives and prop­erty due to floods in Chi­tral and con­veyed his sym­pa­thies for the flood hit peo­ple.
