NC draws attention on national security bill

It is the duty of the state to explore solution of all types of problems arising in the country within the constitutional parameter. But it is a very serious matter for the state to propose a bill against the letter and spirit of the constitution by presenting certain issue a cause", the release reads.
NC would have disagreement if efforts are made to endorse the bill presented at the parliament without amendment, the Spokesperson said, calling for the government not to move ahead in away that could have far-reaching effect to the life of constitution.
