PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly on Friday unanimously passed a resolution against the possible rolling back of the seminal 18th Amendment and called for concerted efforts to prevent this from happening. The resolution demanded implementation of 18th amendment in letter and spirit.
KP Assembly met under the chair of its Speaker Asad Qaisar. During the assembly session, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) MPA Fakhar Azam Wazir tabled a resolution against the possible roll back of the 18th amendment. The house unanimously passed the resolution which demanded completed implementation of the 18th amendment.
Members of the KP Assembly expressed fears that certain forces wish to see the seminal 18th Amendment rolled back. They feared that some kind of conspiracy is being hatched in the ‘centre’ to take back the provincial autonomy by abolishing the 18th Amendment. “A conspiracy is under way in the centre to abolish the 18th Amendment,” Azam stated.
