Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi trying to harm integrity of Pakistan, takes dangerous step to support Punjab province unconstitutionally 
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khagan Abbasi on Thursday reconstituted the Council of Common Interests (CCI), with an overwhelming representation from Punjab, amid emerging crucial issues like census results and gas allocations.

Even more surprisingly, the notification to that effect came from the prime minister whereas the Constitution mandates the president to do so.

Under the notification, the eight-member council headed by the prime minister will now have four members from Punjab [instead of two].

The previous CCI, under former premier Nawaz Sharif, had two members each from the four provinces.

`Prime Minister Shahid Khagan Abbasi has reconstituted the composition of Council of Common Interests,` said the notification issued by the PM Office.

This is a rare move because it is the president who is empowered under Article 153 of the Constitution to appoint the CCI. It says: `There shall be a Council of Common Interests...to be appointed by the President.

With the reconstitution of the CCI, two smaller provinces Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have lost one member each due to the increase in the number of Punjab representatives, while Sindh will continue to have two members in the council.

Ghulam Murtaza Jatoi, federal Minister for Industries and Production, has replaced Minister for Overseas Pakistanis Sadruddin Shah Rashdi.

The PM Office said the CCI would be chaired by the prime minister, with four provincial chief ministers and federal ministers for inter-provincial coordination, industries and production and finance as its members.

This means that besides PM Abbasi, other three members from Punjab will be Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and Inter Provincial Coordination Minister Riaz Hussain Pirzada.

Federal Minister for Religious Affairs Sardar Mohammad Yousaf from KP and Minister for States and Frontier Regions retired Lt Gen Abdul Qadir Baloch from Balochistan were part of the CCI under Nawaz Sharif. They have now been excluded.

The change in the CCI composition has a critical significance because its decisions are taken through majority opinion. Clause 4 of Article 154 requires that `the decisions of the Council shall be expressed in terms of the opinion of the majority`.

Effectively, the federal government could have an overwhelming majority of six out of eight members in certain cases of Centre`s interest by chipping in Balochistan Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri belonging to the PML-N and Industries and Production Minister Murtaza Jatoi.

A senior official claimed that there was no constitutional requirement to have equal representation from the provinces and Article 153(2) empowered the prime minister to nominate three federal ministers to the CCI from time to time without any bar.

The change in the CCI composition comes at a time when a host of crucial matters required decision making, including approval of the sixth national census results, the first-ever national water policy and allocation of new gas finds to domestic consumers.

A meeting of the previous CCI had been scheduled for July 31 to take up these matters, but it could not be held because of disqualification of Nawaz Sharif as prime minister by the Supreme Court on July 28 in the Panama Papers case.

A fresh date for the meeting is being finalised in consultation with the provinces.

The items on the agenda of the meeting include the national water policy, implementation of Article 154 of the Constitution that seeks to have a permanent secretariat for the CCI, functions and powers and provision of 1,200 cusecs of water to Karachi under the K-IV project and a water dispute between Balochistan and Sindh) (Courtesy: Dawn, August 18, 2017).
 

"Khan of Kalat" never made practical efforts to stop killings of innocent Sindhi-speaking labourers in Balochistan

LONDON: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder Altaf Hussain on met with United States (US) Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and self-exiled Baloch leader, the Khan of Kalat Mir Suleman Dawood Jan, at the MQM's London Secretariat. The Khan of Kalat joined the latter half of the meeting, which included lunch and lasted over four hours. The Khan of Kalat and Hussain also agreed to "work together" for the rights of the ohajir community and Baloch people. All three agreed to continue holding such meetings in the near future.
Meanwhile, "Khan of Qalat" obviously never made practical efforts to stop killings of innocent Sindhi labourers in Balochistan despite two Baloch terrorist organizations Baloch Liberation Front (BLF) headed by Dr Allah Nazar Baloch & Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) have repeatedly & openly had taken responsibilities of killings of Sindhi-speaking labourers in Balochistan.
It may be pointed here in about 7 incidents, total Sindhi-speaking labourers were killed in Balochistan whereas Baloch labourers who were working with them, were spared

EDITORIAL:
Prime Minister Abbasi's dangerous game
to harm solidarity & integrity of Pakistan!

The Prime Minister of Pakistan Shahid Khaqan Abbasi who belongs to ruling Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz Group) & has recently replaced Nawaz Sharif
of the same party - ousted as a result of the decision of the Supreme Court of Pakistan. Mr Abbasi has obviously adopted the controversial policy of ex-PM of Nawaz Sharif by favouring Punjab province only.

It appears lke Nawaz Sharif, Mr Abbasi is also trying hard to prove that
practically he is "Prime Minister of Punjab" instead of "Prime Minister of Pakistan". Punjab is the population-wise big province whereas present as well as ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif both belonging to the said province & obviously were interested to get developed Punjab by neglecting rest 3 provinces.

Nawaz Sharif who remained 3 times as Prime Minister of Pakistan had introduced dangerous trends in the country by neglecting rest three provinces out of total four in connection with Mega Development Projects. Practically, he proved that he was "Prime Minister of Punjab" instead of Prime Minister of Pakistan due to his limited thinking. Now present Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi is obviously following the same foot prints.

In CCI, all four provinces had equal representations like 2 members from each provinces. However, present PM has increased members of Punjab from 2 to 4 and reduced member of
two provinces KPK & Balochistan from 2 to 1 each.

Obviously, this is highly dangerous trend as it would definitely increase the rift among the provinces. This step of Shahid Khaqan Abbasi may prove very dangerous & harmful to the integrity & solidarity of the country.

We suggest Prime Minister Abbasi to withdraw the such notification immediately whereas  he had no constructional authority to issue such notification in order to save the country from dismemberment in future.
