    Govt may contact Benazir on Kargil issue


    ISLAMABAD, July 9: Opposition Leader Ms Benazir Bhutto is expected to be contacted by the government as a part of its efforts
    to mobilise public opinion in favour of Nawaz-Clinton agreement signed last week at Washington, Dawn reliably learnt.
    A senior minister on Friday approached some opposition members in the National Assembly and expressed government's intention
    to contact Ms Benazir Bhutto in London, a source said.
    The opposition leader is being contacted by the government under pressure from the US government, the source said.
    He referred to the statement of deputy spokesman of State Department James Foley in which he had said that Prime Minister
    Nawaz Sharif would meet opposition leaders in Pakistan to "discuss the way forward."
    The government would contact the opposition leader through the Pakistani High Commissioner or through a direct telephone call most probably on Saturday, the source said.
    The government is expected to convey a formal invitation to the opposition leader to come and attend Tuesday's sitting of the
    National Assembly in which Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would make a statement on his agreement with President Clinton.
    The source ruled out the possibility of Ms Bhutto rushing back to the country but he did not rule out the possibility of her support to the government on the issue, keenly pursued by the Americans.
    The opposition leader in a recent article has already given her ideas on the issue of Kargil. She had supported the idea of third party mediation.

        The thought projects Pak a lawless society. Key people try to save their ASSES among themselves at the expense of national interests/issues.
