ISLAMABAD - The ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Friday urged the joint opposition in the Parliament to review its earlier decision of boycotting an important session of Parliamentary Committee on National Security (PCNS) saying that the matter was not political in nature. The opposition’s decision to boycott the meeting of house committee on national security is regrettable, said Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry in a Twitter statement. He said that it was for the first time in last seven decades that a government was presenting its national security policy before the Parliament. “The matter was not political one but it is an issue of national security,” the minister said urging the opposition to review its decision and participate in the meeting “seriously.” A day earlier, the joint opposition had announced to boycott an in-camera session of PCNS alleging that the government was using the Parliament as “rubber stamp.” The opposition in a statement had said that it had always fully participated in the previous meetings and briefings convened on national security issues but the government had been ignoring the Parliament repeatedly.
