ISLAMABAD Chairman Constitutional Committee on Constitutional Reforms, Senator Mian Raza Rabbani on Monday continued holding meetings with the MPs to ensure their support for the passage of 18th Amendment Bill from the Upper House of the Parliament. During the course of meetings, Senator Mian Raza Rabbani went to the residence of JUI-F Chief Moulana Fazlur Rehman and sought his cooperation in the passage of the bill from Senate. Sources aware of the developments on this front informed TheNation that a couple of senators hailing from JUI-F were out to vote against the 18th Amendment Bill in the Senate where the ruling coalition was already facing difficulty to muster the golden figure of 67 to get the Bill passed. Moulana Fazlur Rehman during the meeting expressed his partys concerns over the recent spate of violence in Abbottabad where over half a dozen citizens were killed in the police shootout. He also referred to the Governments failure in taking tangible steps regarding the killing of JUI-F workers and leaders in Karachi and Quetta and said that though they were in coalition Government with Pakistan Peoples Party but would not compromise on principles. Mian Raza Rabbani assured the JUI-F Chief that he would take up these issues with the party leadership and get them resolved at the earliest. Senator Mian Raza Rabbani, who is also advisor to the Prime Minister, also held detailed meetings with senators of MQM, ANP and PML-N and discuss the ways and means to get the 18th Amendment Bill passed from the Upper House. Sources aware of the deliberations of these meetings held separately informed that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders were deviating from their commitment and now wanted review of the new name of NWFP to appease the people of Hazara Division who had been protesting over the name of Khyber-Pakhtoonkhawa for past couple of days. The sources further said that though MQM was standing by their commitment but they too wanted steps to solace the people of Hazara and even suggested that a committee could be formed to help resolve the matter of renaming NWFP taking all the stakeholders onboard. Some politicians hailing from MQM, ANP and PML-N had expressed their annoyance toward the apathy shown by the PPP leadership toward this very important issue where they had left the responsibility of getting it passed from the Parliament on Raza Rabbani alone and no other senior PPP leader was seen active in roping in the MPs having divergent views on the issue. Some of these leaders said that at such an important juncture the Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani should have been here to manage the things while the Presidential camp was also seen inactive and indifferent toward this very important matter and it seemed that they wanted to see the whole exercise derailed.
