Dear John E. Carey
Peace and Freedom
I hope you and your team at the Peace and Freedom will be alright. Believe me that you kind cooperation has been bringing some positive impact on the life of tribesmen living near Pak-Afghan border.
I want to bring in your kind notice that Pakistan has deployed army troops in Bajaur Agency as it seems that an operation may be launched against terrorists any time. Some dreaded terrorists have been hiding in Bajaur Agency, therefore, I shall suggest the Peace and Freedom should supervise the operation. There is possibility that the terrorists may take advantage of the choas and may leave the area for a safer place.
Some of the officials have still been providing support to terrorists as they have been getting huge money from them. Giving more time to terrorists will be dangerous.
Situation in Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan is also critical as there is race among the politicians for getting the coveted post of prime minister. I want to bring in your kind notice that President Pervez Musharraf has secured himself.
Speaker National Assembly Chaudhry Amir Hussain Friday said MNAs elect would take their oaths in accordance with the constitution of 1973 and hoped that the new National Assembly will give exemplary performance by establishing better practices.
Talking to Geo News in an interview, he said oath will be administered to the MNA’s elect on March 17 during the inaugural NA session and it will be prorogued till March 19 after the oath taking.
Chaudhry Amir Hussain said in order to make the NA session an impressive event, prior consultations will be held with the representatives of all the parties.
Nomination papers of speaker would be received on March 18 till 12 noon. Polling for slot of Speaker NA would be held through secret ballot on March 19. Same day the new elected speaker will take over the charge of the custodian of the august House.
He said the election of deputy speaker would be conducted by newly elected speaker. Then the session would be prorogued sine die. The election of the leader of the House or Prime Minister will be held in the NA session called later.
To a question, he said the President can call this session whenever he wants but normally it is not delayed for long and it is called within two to four days.
The MNAs elect for 1988, 1990, 1993, 1997 and 2002 elections took the same oath under1973 Constitution, he said in reply to another question. Only the words “Khuda Aap Ka Haami-o-Nasir Ho” (May Almighty Allah be with you) were added to the statement of oath in 1985, he added.
This time also the members will take oath under the 1973 Constitution, Amir Hussain said.
Dear Sir, the main issue of Pakistan is terrorism, therefore, the US must exert more pressure on President Musharraf to show seriousness in war on terrorism. Some of the officials have been chasing me. Several times they have threatened me, but I am not afraid of them. In the presence of brother like you no one can harm me. At the moment I have been needing your support and prayers.
Thank you very much,
Khar, Bajaur Agency,Tribal Areas, Pakistan
