ISLAMABAD: The joint session of the parliament will be held today at 4:30 pm to express resolve to defend the sovereignty and integrity of the country at all costs.
The session will discuss unprovoked aggression of Indian security forces across the Line of Control (LoC) and deteriorating situation in Occupied Kashmir.
Earlier, PTI announced that it would boycott Wednesday’s joint parliamentary session on the Kashmir issue, with party chairman Imran Khan saying his party would no longer endorse this parliament.
“We fully back Kashmiris’ right to self-determination and sent Shah Mehmood Qureshi to yesterday’s meeting of the parliamentary parties’ heads,” said Imran, questioning what else was left there for discussion in the joint session of the parliament.
He said that Nawaz Sharif had lost the moral authority to stay as the prime minister and that Tehreek-i-Insaf would no longer endorse this parliament.
However, this move from the opposition party met with severe criticism from political circles.
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Qamar Zaman Kaira criticised Imran Khan for spoiling government’s efforts for a unanimous stance on Kashmir.
“Until yesterday, Nawaz Sharif had the legality of a prime minister, but today he lost the moral authority according to the PTI chairman,” he questioned, adding that this makes no sense.
