ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) president Mian Nawaz Sharif on Friday vowed to raise the issue of the ‘missing persons’ at every available forum, DawnNews reported.
Nawaz said that he was also ready to amend the law and constitution if required.
“We will present a resolution in the National Assembly on the issue. We will not back down until the victims are recovered,” said Nawaz.
The PML-N chief said this while visiting a camp set up by relatives of the ‘missing persons’.
Categorizing the issue as one of the biggest problems Pakistan faced, Nawaz said that the constitution and law were helpless as nobody was willing to solve the issue.
He said such a society of oppression could not be tolerated any further, and that the victims’ family members did not even know who to appeal to.
Criticising the government, Nawaz asked why the democratically elected leaders could not address the ‘missing persons’ problem.
”We are taking up this issue at every available forum,” said the PML-N chief.
Earlier, PML-N leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan also hurled criticism at the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).
“Not a single thing has been done in the past four years to address this issue,” said the opposition leader. “I am ashamed to be an assembly member.”
