Yemen Crisis: Govt. has Yet to get a Confidence Vote on 3rd Day Joint Session
Yemen Crises: Joint Session in the Parliament reaches its 3rd Day with the Goverment failing to get a vote of confidence sending troops to Yemen on Saudi demand.
A joint-session of the Parliament was called in by the Nawaz's Government to get a consensus on sending Pakistans military on Saudi Arabia's request to curb Yemen rebellion (Houthis) against Saudi's Ally President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi's regime.
In his opening statement the defence minister, Khwaja Asif had expressed Saudi's demand of troops, aircrafs, warships ex-Pakistan to assist them.
The notion has been unanimously rejected by members of the parliament, irrespective of any house, stating that Pakistan does not represent mercenaries and the only role Pakistan ought to play is of an arbitrator.
Lest it be secular representation as PTI, MQM or religious inclined JUI-F and Jamaat-e-Islami, all have undisputedly agreed that Pakistan shouldn't involve their forces in Yemens' crisis and ensure unity of Muslim Ummah by being a conciliator.
During deliberation by the members of the parliament, it was brought forth that Sharif’s family might have already granted Saudi’s mandate to send troops while getting a consensus in the parliament was all a farce. Some said, yet it became partys’ solemn responsibility to speak out their contentions and the adverse implications it would have on Pakistan.
Saudi Arabia’s military aggression against Yemen started on March 26 in a bid to restore power to ousted President Hadi. The airstrikes have killed hundreds of people and injured thousands more.
Ansarullah fighters have taken over state matters, citing the inability of Hadi’s former government to properly run the affairs of the country and contain terror and corruption.
In February, Hadi fled the capital, Sana’a, to the southern city of Aden, where he sought to set up a rival base. Hadi had stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Houthi revolutionaries. The then parliament, however, rejected his resignation, which he later withdrew in Aden.
Popular committees backed by Ansarullah fighters are continuing their advances despite the Saudi attacks while also stepping up their fight against al-Qaeda terrorists and secured many areas from the militants.
