Leaders from Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) filed an adjournment motion in the National Assembly (NA) for a debate on Justice Qazi Isa’s commission report on the Quetta carnage.
The motion was filed by PTI’s Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Shireen Mazari and Munaza Hasan. It said that business of the day should be adjourned “to discuss an issue of grave importance” arising out of Justice Qazi Isa’s Inquiry Report on the Quetta carnage.
The party claimed that Interior Minister was directly blamed for neglecting implementation of National Action Plan (NAP) in the report while concerns were also raised over his meetings with banned outfits. The motion further says that “the report has implicated Balochistan government and provincial political leadership in corruption.” The motion stated that report maintained that anti-terrorism operations got affected by provincial government’s negligence whereas the report has also indicated the flaws in the government and system.
The report is a result of a one-member inquiry commission comprising of Justice Qazi Faez Isa of the Supreme Court that investigated the Aug 8 Quetta carnage.
At least 70 people were killed and over 100 others wounded in a suicide bombing on Aug 8 at the emergency ward of Quetta’s Civil Hospital, where scores of people had gathered to mourn the death of Balochistan Bar Association (BBA) president Bilal Anwar Kasi in a gun attack earlier in the day.—INP
