ISLAMABAD - Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that effort of the Pakistan People’s Party-led ruling alliance to table a resolution seeking military operation in North Waziristan is a trick to postpone general elections in the country.

Talking to journalists on Wednesday, Nisar said that operation in North Waziristan would destabilise the country more, adding that smell of a conspiracy is emanating from the corridors of powers.  He said that the world was saddened over the shooting of Malala Yousafzai but attack on her was planned in Afghanistan and it could not be the justification of military operation in North Waziristan.

“An operation in North Waziristan is being mulled on the pretext of an attack on Malala Yousafzai,” he said, adding that attack on an innocent girl was being given a new dimension.

Chaudhry Nisar reminded that parliamentary resolutions on drone attacks and Abbottabad operation were not implemented. He alleged that the government wanted to create a situation to delay election. The opposition leader also vowed to resist Accountability Bill and said that the bill was aimed at protecting thieves. The PML-N leader said that his party, on coming to power, would repeal the new accountability law if the government succeeded in passing it from the parliament.

To a question, he said there were different groups of militants operating in Pakistan with the name of Taliban and were in contact with India, while the real Taliban were in Afghanistan and they did not like India.
