Marvi Memon on Sunday urged the government to retaliate against the drone strikes.The Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid Member National Assembly (MNA) dispatched a letter to Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani in which she demanded that the government, through a parliamentary resolution, should allow the army to retaliate against the US drone attacks.
She wrote that the drone strikes were an attack on the sovereignty of Pakistan and the Parliament had already adopted a resolution against them. She asked the prime minister to inform the UN about the US aggression.
She said that the constitution bound the government to protect its citizens but the rulers had failed to do so. If the government had signed some secret pact on the drone strikes, it was also a violation of the constitution, Marvi said in her letter.
