ISLAMABAD - There was rumpus in the Upper House of the Parliament when Awami National Party (ANP) and PML-N exchanged hot words with each other over the controversial statements separately issued by some two leaders of both the parties. The hullabaloo in the house started when Mushahid Ullah Khan of PML-N severely condemned the statement of ANPs senior leader Bashir Ahmed Bilour published in the section of a press. The press statement quoting Bashir Bilour said that the period of Allah-ho-Akbar (Allah the Great) has come to end and now it was the time to use technology to fight war. Mushahid Ullah Khan remarked ANP as secular party saying that the statement of Bashir Ahmed Bilour had harmed the sentiment of the whole Muslim world. He was likely to stage a token walk out from the house when Ilyas Balour, partys senior leader and brother of Bashir Balour, exchanged hot words with him. Zahid Khan, another ANP leader rose from his seat to counter Mr Khan and said that his party members and he were true Muslims. He said that Rana Sahaullah, Punjab Law Minister of PML-N, declared senior lawmaker Dr Babar Awan as Wajibul Qatl (liable to be killed) asking whether it was Islamic. Leader of the Opposition, Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri also sought an explanation from Haji Adeel Ahmed, parliamentary leader of ANP, terming the issue of serious and sensitive nature. Later, Haji Adeel Ahmed clarified that the statement of Bashir Ahmed Bilour was misquoted in the newspaper and the party had issued a rebuttal and the newspaper would publish it. However, furious Mushahid Ullah Khan was not ready to calm down in no way who said that it was the discriminatory attitude of this house as a resolution was passed against his party member, Rana Sanaullah only because it belonged to Punjab. He said that the clarification of PML-N was not being admitted on the issue while ANPs explanation was thought be enough. However, Sabir Baloch, a diehard PPP activist, was of the view that the resolution was moved by the opposition demanding that PML-N should exclude Rana Sanaullah from its lines. This time Mushahid Ullah came down hard on the PPP saying that Zulfiqar Mirza, ex-home minister Sindh, should not be spared for talking against the integrity of the country. He was comforted after Ishaq Dar of his senior party member spoke on the issue who said that no one should not do politics on petty issues. Many senators on separate points of order raised different issues before the house was adjourned till Tuesday at 10:30 am, as no lawmaker was ready to take part in the continued constitutional debate over the appointment of Leader of Opposition in Senate. The house will resume the debate today while Mian Raza Rabbani, Dr Babar Awan, Leader of the House Nayyer Hussain Bokhari and Azam Khan Swati will be the key speakers. Haji Adeel on the point of order condemned writing of a letter by Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain to the Chairman Senate for giving a favour vote of 31 members including ANP, MQM and PML-Q in the appointment of Ghafoor Haider. He said that his party was sitting on treasury benches and could not vote for leader of the opposition. Zahid Khan condemned the decisions of IHC for giving stay orders against different development schemes in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa epically in Munda Dam case, saying that this practice had delayed the construction work of these schemes. Zafar Ali Shah of PML-N viewed that IHC should not be blamed unnecessarily while Haji Adeel Ahmed remarked that IHC should not become super high court as it was in Musharrafs regime. Hasil Khan Bazenjo raised the issue of doctors of Balochistan that were on strike for the last two month asking the chair that JUI-F should be requested to intervene in the matter as provincial health ministry belonged to this party. Haji Ghulam Ali on the point of order condemning he statement of Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif in which he said that Punjab was being deprived of gas, electricity and other commodities, termed it tantamount to isolating three provinces. He said that it would have impact on three provinces. Kalsoom Perveen and Rehana Yahya Baloch informed the chair that CDA under the Shah Allah Ditta Water Supply Scheme had failed to provide water to the 12 sectors of Islamabad fearing that the national kitty would have to suffer the loss of Rs1 billion due to this mismanagement. Professor Khurshid Ahmed said many people had timely deposited their amount in banks to proceed for Haj but banks did not transfer the money to Religious Affairs Ministry and now they were not being entertained. Jamal Khan Leghari raised the issue that four to six thousand women of National Commission for Human Development (NHCD) and National Education Foundation (NEF) were protesting in front of the Parliament House because they were becoming jobless as both the projects were being shelved after the devolution of education to provinces. Raza Rabbani informed the house that after the devolution of education ministry, all the provincial governments had refused own these programs due to funding problems except Sindh. He said that the issue was not the domain of Implementation Commission as Council of Common Interests had given its verdict adding that the Commission would see the issue of outstanding dues of these employees soon. The chairman gave a ruling that four or five representatives of these programmes should meet Raza Rabbani, as he will help in settling all their dues settled within 15 days through Finance Ministry.
