Nisar said that public representatives were taken into confidence on such sensitive issues in democratic countries. He alleged that the government wants to create a situation so that elections could be postponed.

Commenting on war on terror, Nisar said that no Pakistani was involved in 9/11 attacks and the government has been fighting war of others for last eleven years.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader said that children were not attacked in any war and the attack on Malala Yousafzai was regrettable.

Responding a question he said the PML-N would not compromise on dual nationality issue however seats should be reserved for Pakistani expatriates.

Earlier, the Senate was informed that no decision has yet been taken for a military operation in North Waziristan.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik, while speaking on a point of personal explanation, said no decision has so far been taken for military operation in North Waziristan. He said such decision, if any, will be made jointly by military and political leadership.

Malik said head money on Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan has been increased to one hundred million rupees.

The interior minister assured the house that strict action will be taken against militants involved in terrorism. The house offered special prayers for the recovery of Malala Yusufzai on the occasion.
