QUETTA: Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani has said that there is on clash among state institutions. However, he added that all state’s institutions have to work together in their constitutional limits.
Addressing function here on Wednesday, Rabbani said the parliament, executive and judiciary have to work together while remaining in the limits of their jurisdictions.
He said according to the law, the state’s first and foremost responsibility was to protect the lives and property of the people. “The weakest state institution is the Parliament,” he.
He added that democratic forces struggled against a dictator and got Article 58(2)(b) removed from the Constitution but now another method has arisen. He said that the civilians did not need to take patriotism certificate from Islamabad or Rawalpindi.
The said section of the Constitution was inserted in 1985 by Gen Ziaul Haq and was used by military dictators and presidents to dismiss political governments. It was removed from the Constitution when the 18th Amendment was passed by the Pakistan Peoples Party government in 2010.
He said that all political parties need to walk side by side in order to make Pakistan a developed and stable state.
The ceremony was organised in connection with efforts for peace and stability taken since August 8, 2016 tragedy. Last year in August, over 70 lawyers were killed and scores wounded in a suicide blast that targeted civil hospital.
