ISLAMABAD-The in-camera briefing to joint session of the Parliament on the government policy on the ongoing war on terror and other related matters has broken the fragile truce being observed by Pakistan People's Party and it's erstwhile ally Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) as the latter's MPs cried foul when they were not given time to make some point on the floor of the house. It was perhaps the first noisy bout between the two parties since the stepping out of coalition government by PML(N) when Pakistan Peoples Party fell short of fulfilling its promise on judges restoration, but the sagacity of the senior leadership on both the sides managed to cool down the tampers, and to avoid the confrontational course. The sense of maturity shown by the two sides was praised by all and sundry, gives a ray of hope that political culture would now take roots in the country and finally the nation would be out of the quagmire of dictatorship. But once again the things seemed to go off the track as Pakistan Peoples Party was out to dictate their way of handling the war on terror giving no room to accommodate the other stakeholders' point of view in the Parliament. Sources in the Pakistan Muslim League(Nawaz) disclosed that the Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Ch Nisar Ali Khan and other senior MPs of his party raised the issue with party Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif in a meeting that their point of view on the war on terror was not being well taken by the ruling PPP. It was further disclosed by the party sources that the PML(N) MPs in National Assembly were not happy over the way the house was being conducted by the ruling coalition and wanted the party leadership to come tough on the rulers instead of taking the conciliatory course. The party sources further informed The Nation that Mian Nawaz Sharif had asked Ch Nisar Ali Khan and some other senior part MPs to prepare a detailed report on the issue and submit the same to him so that they could review their policy towards the government. The sources in the ruling coalition said that PPP was also having problem dealing with their coalition partners, JUI(F) and ANP, on the issue of tackling the war on terror and the extent and nature of the support they were extending to the United States. The sources further disclosed that both ANP and JUI (F) leadership demanded immediate halt to the US attacks inside Pakistan whereas the PPP government wanted to become softer on the issue contrary to their public stand. The political analysts said that PPP was in catch-22 situation, as on one hand, it would not be possible for them to withdraw support to United States, while on the other, losing support of their allies, ANP and JUI(F),would cost them dearly. The challenge PPP leadership right now facing is to convince America not to invade Pakistani territory in pursuit of terrorists and to let it be handled by engaging the local tribal leaders in negotiations. The political analysts were not clear whether or not the political parties would come out with some joint strategy to deal with the war on terror, but one thing they were having consensus on was that differences between the political parties sitting in the Parliament would increase with the passage of time.
