Lahore—Pakistan Muslim League (PML) leader and former Deputy Prime Minister Ch Parvez Elahi has said that ally of Nawaz Sharif, Mahmud Achakzai has violated the Constitution and oath in the National Assembly by talking against security and solidarity of Pakistan as such action against him under Article 6 is essential because this is a matter of security and safeguarding of Pakistan.
Addressing a press conference along with Mian Muhammad Munir and Azeemuddin Lakhvi here today, Elahi said that Pakistan had played the greatest role in getting Afghanistan evacuated from Russian occupation during Ziaul Haq regime, played host like brothers to 3 million Afghan refugees for 37 years, statement of Mahmud Achakzai amounts to treason with blood of Pakistani army jawans and the people who laid down their lives for liberation of Afghanistan, he had displayed hostility towards Pakistan by not condemning attack on the Ziarat residence of the Quaid-i-Azam and criticizing Pak Army and Pakistan over Pathankot attack whereas Mahmud Achakzai, his family and all of us Pakistanis are today what we are because of Pakistan, this is his and our entity.
He said that Pak Afghan international border is recognized by the entire world and the Supreme Court verdict is also there, UNO also had declared Afghans who had migrated to Pakistan after Russian occupation as refugees because Durand Line was the international border, NATO containers are checked on the border.
Showing copies of the oath of Mahmud Khan Achakzai as MNA and his brother Muhammad Khan Achakzai as Governor Balochistan, Ch Parvez Elahi said that it is clearly written in the oath that I will bear true faith and allegiance Pakistan and always work for security, solidarity and prosperity of Pakistan but Mahmud Achakzai’s statement that Khyber Pukhtoonkhwah belongs to Afghanis tantamount to breaking of Pakistan although his two brothers Majeed Khan Achakzai and Hameed Khan Achakzai are both MPAs, one brother-in-law Spozemai Achakzai is MNA and other Hassan Manzoor is DIG Motorways, Mahmud Khan Achakzai talks in the language of Delhi and Kabul, he is punching the plate in which he eats.
Describing the silence of Mahmud Khan Achakzai’s ally Nawaz Sharif and his party as quite meaningful, Ch Parvez Elahi said that his (Mahmud Achakzai) statement reflects the mindset of Nawaz Sharif govt, when Nawaz Sharif will FIR of Pathankot attack registered in Gujranwala then his ally will see Khyber Pukhtoonkhwah as of the Afghanis. He said Durand Line is the international border since 1893, whole world has never termed it as controversial, Pak-Afghan agreements also endorse it. He said why Mahmud Achakzai is forgetting that after Almighty Allah, Afghanistan has been saved because of Pakistan otherwise it had been occupied by Russia.
Responding to questions from the media people, Ch Parvez Elahi said that poor pensioners are being pushed around outside the banks ahead of Eid in Pakistan whereas Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family is doing shopping in the costliest stores of London.
Earlier, at the very outset of his talk, Ch Parvez Elahi expressed heartfelt grief and sorrow over losses of lives and property due to floods in Chitral and conveyed his sympathies for the flood hit people.
