UNGA resolution of little value: Baloch

Share This

LAHORE: Secretary General, Jamaat e Islami, Liaqat Baloch, has said that UN General Assembly unanimous resolution against the drone strikes was a positive development but of little value because the US and Britain would definitely veto it in the Security Council.

In a statement here on Friday, he said that the decision to stop NATO supplies and the drone attacks was to be made primarily by Islamabad provided it had the courage to shoot down the drones and stop begging for aid or alms from foreign powers.

Liaqat Baloch further said that the attack on the troops in North Waziristan prior to the military action and the firing by the US and Afghan forces in South Waziristan was a conspiracy to sabotage the talks with the Taliban and efforts for peace. He urged the government not to fall in the enemy trap and go ahead with the national policy for dialogue in order to restore peace.

The JI Secretary General said that at present, there was no room fro mid term elections. However, he said, only time would tell how long the rigging tainted assembly could continue.

He criticized the government performance and said that every passing day was brining more misery to the masses, yet the Federal Finance Minister was talking of improvement in the economy. He said that the country was heading towards a civil war and the Prime Minister and the Finance Minister would be entirely responsible for that.

The JI leader impressed upon the opposition parties to forge unity in their ranks and emerge as an effective voice for the solution of the people’s problems. He said that in the Punjab, the life, property and honour of the citizens was not secure and the police and the bureaucracy were fighting over their powers. It was time that the Punjab Chief Minister agave due attention to the law and order.
