Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Sherry Rehman has said that her party will not accept the unconstitutional cuts by the federal government in the National Finance Commission (NFC).
The PPP senator said on Twitter, “The PPP will not accept unconstitutional cuts by the federal govt in the NFC. In fact, no such cuts are possible without a constitutional amendment.”
Sherry Rehman also rejected the formation of task forces under the supervision of governor, saying “Setting up task forces under the supervision of a governor, who is an arm of the executive, is a roadblock on provincial autonomy.”
The federal cabinet on Thursday decided to allocate three per cent share of the NFC to erstwhile Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) by reducing the share of provinces.
