ISLAMABAD - The government would brief the parliamentary committee on granting Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status to India on December 1, as the Senate Commerce on Commerce has sought complete details on granting much debated status to the natural foe. According to the agenda, the Senate Standing Committee on Commerce would take the one-point agenda issue of giving the MFN status to India on December 1. committee Chairman Senator Ilyas Ahmed Bilour would chair the meeting. The Senate body has sought a detailed briefing from the Commerce Ministry on granting MFN status to India, as there are lots of reservation in our minds in this regard, said a member of the committee while talking to TheNation on Monday. He further said that the government did not take the parliamentary committee on board before announcing such a big decision for granting MFN status to India. He was of the view that the government is also ignoring the impact of granting MFN to India on Pakistans domestic manufacturing, such as pharmaceuticals, motor vehicle, durable consumer goods and a host of other industries. Therefore, he said, we want that the government should resolve our concerns and reservations on MFN status. The governments decision of giving MFN status to India had raised serious reservations among the political parties and they asked the government to take parliament on board in this regard. It might be mentioned here that that the federal cabinet on November 2 had unanimously approved a proposal to give India the MFN status. However, Federal Minister for Textile Industry Makhdoom Shahabuddin other day had told the National Assembly that MFN status has not been given a final shape yet, he said, adding that Pakistans own interest would be safeguarded before taking the decision.
