Youth Parliament Congratulates Foreign Office on the abolition of Screening Condition for Pakistanis at US airports

Islamabad, April 3: The Youth Parliament appreciated the Foreign Office and the Government of Pakistan for achieving the abolition of the screening condition for Pakistanis at US airports. The members lauded the success of the strategic dialogue between the two countries and congratulated the overseas Pakistani's and nationals over this success.

On the fourth day of the Third Session of the Youth Parliament Pakistan, the members discussed ways and means to eliminate poverty, create more jobs and help strengthen the economy of the country.

The day started with a Calling Attention Notice by Ms. Mahrukh Ayesha Ali (YP18-NWFP07) on the unfortunate death of a student of UET leading to riots and closing of the institution for five weeks. The House called for the perpetrators to be punished and called for regulated student union activities in campuses.

The other calling attention notices for the day included the menace of acid attack violence in Pakistan. The corruption of Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Karachi was brought to the notice of the Education Minister and it was demanded that the Students should not be exploited by the poor policies of the government.

The first resolution of the house was presented by Ms. Zile Huma (YP30-PUNJAB12) regarding the water issue of the country.  The house was of the view that Indian motives of constructing 62 dams on rivers allocated to Pakistan should be condemned on all international forums. The resolution was adopted unanimously by the house and members gave their suggestions in initiating a dialogue with India over the issue of water.

Ms. Syeda Rabab Zehra Naqvi (YP41-SINDH04) moved a resolution stating that the government should encourage Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the country to generate employment and are a major source of economic growth, especially in a developing country like Pakistan. 

Mr. Prem Chand (YPYP38-SINDH01) stressed on the need to take effective measures for social welfare security, through a resolution. The members debated and thought that there should be revision in the existing setup to further the cause of poverty alleviation.

The Youth Parliament will meet for the last day of its Third Session on April 04, 2010 where it would present a number of bills in the house and discuss the performance in the existing session, coming up with ways and means to come up with a policy of Youth Parliament in the upcoming sessions. Youth Parliament Pakistan serves as a useful forum to voice views of the Youth about a range of national and international issues. The debates in the Youth Parliament Pakistan are meant to not only help the young members in their personal development as a useful citizen, these also serve the purpose of articulating views of the youth on vital issues facing the nation and conveying these to the Government.
