ISLAMABAD - Terming the condemnation on continuous drone strikes inside the Pakistani territory as a futile act, the legislators in the upper house of Parliament on Friday demanded the implementation of a joint resolution carried out by the Parliament against the drones. In the wake of intensified predator strikes in recent days, the concerned legislators took up the issue and asked the government for a detailed strategy to cope with the 'menace that was claiming lives of innocents besides militants. The debate started after newly-appointed leader of the opposition in Senate Moulana Abdul Ghafoor talking on a point of order condemned the drone attacks. On this, Senator Ishaq Dar giving reference of a recent statement of JUI-F chief Fazalur Rehman asked the JUI-F to clarify its position that whether or not it owned a joint resolution it had signed in the backdrop of Abbotabad incident. Fazal had given a statement that the formation of a commission to probe the Abbotabad incident as per the adopted joint resolution could create problems. Responding to this, Abdul Ghafoor said Moulanas statement was quoted out of context in the press. He (Fazl) had just said the formation of the commission had been made controversial, he added. Senator Mushahid Ullah Khan of the PML-N came up with an idea of bringing resolution against the incumbent government for not resolving the predators issue even in the presence of a joint resolution. If the government was not serious in resolving this issue then opposition would have to take steps, he added. He also termed the strikes a conspiracy to shatter the morale of the nation. Senator SM Zafar also flayed the recently intensified campaign of drones but at the same time averred that condemnation had lost its importance. The mother of all evils is new thinking of the US that provides her to carry out attacks at a state within a state and which is not ready to accept writ of the government, Zafar added. He also said that efforts were underway on the part of US to give legal cover to all such attacks. Professor Khurshid Ahmed demanded to convene meeting of the parliamentary committee on national security as part of first step towards immediate measures by the government to pay heed to the issue. The CIA has been carrying out attacks since 2004. But these attacks has been increased by 10 per cent for the past three years and the government is not willing to take any action, Khurshid said. He also demanded action against those who released audio tape of the joint sitting of the Parliament to the US Embassy. Senator Raza Rabbani condemning the Thursdays drone attack said a counter-narrative was needed to ensure national security. He called for convening national security meeting during the next week to discuss the issues of national interest. Senator Salim Saifullah said it was decided in the joint resolution to revise the terms of engagements with the US. He also called for convening a joint meeting of the National Assembly and Senate committees on foreign affairs. On this, Senate Chairman Farooq H Naek said he would talk to the NA speaker to call joint meeting of the foreign affairs committees. Senator Azam Swati said there was a need to revisit countrys foreign policy. Senator Abbas Khan Afridi flouted the idea to opposition parties to jointly hold a 'Dharna for recording effective protest against attacks. AGENCIES ADD: Members of the Upper House of Parliament were up in arms on Friday against the drone attacks in tribal areas and demanding of the government to immediately block Nato fuel supply through Pakistan as per the joint resolution of the Parliament. The senators opined that the US was promoting an idea that if there was no writ of government in any country or a part of any country, the Americans can attack it by presenting a resolution in the UN.
