Senator Usman Kakar has moved a motion in the Senate against the misconduct of FC Balochistan.

The Senate Committee on Procedure and Privileges on Thursday summoned the Balochistan Frontier Corps IG over a dispute involving misconduct with a senator, Pakistan’s leading daily Dawn reported.

The privilege motion was moved by Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party Senator, Usman Khan Kakar.

Mr Kakar said that he had never moved a privilege motion in his life but an incident which took place during his election campaign at Qila Saifullah, forced him to move a privilege motion.

While presenting his case in the committee, he recalled, “On July 9, I addressed a public meeting and spoke against the FC. At 11pm, while I was returning along with my workers, I found that the road was blocked with a chain and there was a FC check-post there. My workers and I called many times but after failing to get any response we honked the car horn. Finally, two FC officials came and after checking our cards untied the chain.

“However, a Hawaldar stopped us. He asked how we dared to honk horns at the FC check-post and then directed his soldiers to take positions to open fire but they did not,” Mr Kakar added.

The Hawaldar, he claimed, on inquiring about their identity again said that he did not care about any senator or parliamentarian. “We had to wait there for an hour as we were not allowed to leave without seeking clearance. Finally, after an hour our names were written on a register and we were allowed to leave,” said Mr Kakar.

He said that after reaching Quetta, he tried to contact the IG FC several times and for many hours but every time his personal secretary said that the officer was busy.

In response, Senate committee chairman Sardar Azam Khan Musakhel summoned the IG FC, along with the Hawaldar who misbehaved with Senator Kakar, in the next Senate meeting so that they could clarify their positions.
