ISLAMABAD: Awami National Party (ANP) leader Asfand Yar Wali has said in the National Assembly that 18th amendment was being delayed due to issue of renaming NWFP. There was no other alternative but to put Khyber with Pukhtoonkhwa. He said that if the environment for national reconciliation is not established than Balochistan would become another Swat within a year.

Participating in debate over 18th amendment in the National Assembly, Asfand Wali Yar said that 18th amendment bill was being delayed due to issue of renaming NWFP. He said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) was insisting to rename NWFP as Khyber and he has only two options. One was to tear the 18th amendment bill into pieces whereas second option was to strive for collective consensus. He said that if any province is kept in isolation then everything will be destroyed. The ANP leader said that 610 people were killed in one place in the name of provincial autonomy. Asfandyar said that 18th amendment is like 1973 constitution for them. Even today, English law is in practice in FATA, he said and added that it is difficult to find political ideals. SAMAA
