Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani said on Friday that state institutions need to stay in their prescribed ambit, respect constitutional limits and allow democracy to flourish.

Rabbani made these remarks during a discussion while Senate was in session. He observed that all the state institutions worked under the Constitution, which provided for a trichotomy of power. He said this provision should be respected by every institution.

He further warned, “If any institution tries to exceed its ambit, it will be damaging for the democratic process in the country”. The Senate chairman also observed that one of the functions of the parliament under the Constitution was to oversee the executive and to provide policy guidelines. “The government [therefore] needs to empower parliament so that it can play an effective role in this regard,” he urged.

Other senators also took part in the discussion initiated by Senator Farhatullah Babar, who wanted to caution state institutions about overstepping their mandates.

  1. FACTS ON THE GROUND IN PAKISTAN.Reference to the Islamic history and Pakistan’s independance period, I want to go a step further and will recomend to select/elect every Chief of Army staff as president after retirement and the present Army chief should be be given extra time for his oustanding services at national and international level and all other Corps. Commanders of the Army and COS of Airforce and Navy should be apponited Governors and Deputy Governors of the provinces and regions ( by creating regional governments in all four provinces, 2 in Punjab 1 in each province- these regions already exist based on language, culture and history , such as Saraiki, Potahari, Upper Sind-Sukkar, Dera Ismail Khan in NWFP and Gawadar- Balouch Area. And all additional bureaucrates who love to live in provincial capitals should be trasfered to these remote areas of the country. These new regions should invite and attrect the foreigner and Pakistani origin people to invest in the area to creat jobs and eliminate poverty.) This is the only way we can stop further intereption/ coup in Pakistan . After all armed forces personnel are wel diciplined and organized . And above all represent Pakistan’s divercified population.And it;s leadership do not transfer within family but earned by hardwork and talents only. Every second family in Pakistan is represented in the army one way or the other and the Pakistan Army is the only ever lasting popular party-yes it’s an important ruling party other than Bhuttos and anti-Bhuttos, Sharif brothers. With this arrangement no one is loser except few feudals and industrialists, who reprent non of the masses in Pakistan. We already have a quota system applied for superior services since 30 years and had killed thousands of innocent talented young people, why not try this arrangement for the welfare of the country which will effect none but very few so called politicians who after all deal with generals, behind the curtains.And it’s good to know that supporters of these politician are 500/600 Mafia families who live in 145 districts in Pakistan and provide so called public leadership for national, provincial and local levels. Any restriction to stop them is useless. Recent example of education condition brought their unseen educated women forward in politics. All 8000/9000 candidates in recent elections were from the same mafia group who are the biggest law breakers and around 1100 leading law breakers have been elected as new law makers who will take care of themselves but none. They all are involved in worst kind of crimes on this earth against humanity with the collaboration of junior police officials.An inquiry by a neutral agency may prove my claim.WOULD THE EDITOR PUBLISH THIS LETTER in the larger interest of the nation.
