Parliamentarians of Awami National Party launched a hunger strike outside the parliament house on Wednesday against alleged cornering of Pakhtuns.
The ANP has objected to government’s step to block Computerised National Identity Cards of Pakhtuns by branding it a move to corner them. Protesting representatives of the ANP have said that they are all for blocking fake ID cards but it is not acceptable to corner Pakhtuns. Former chief minister Amir Ali Haider Hoti warned the federal government against the move. — NNI
