KARACHI: The federal government was violating the constitution by not forming a council on common interests (CCI), Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Raza Rabbani said in a press conference in Karachi, Express News reported.

“A lot of problems and issues now come under the CCI. Therefore the non-formation of the CCI is giving the impression that the federal government has still not accepted devolution of power,” said Rabbani.

Rabbani said that the full report from the Abbottabad Commission should be made public, the confusion regarding the subject should be removed and the chapter should be closed.

Rabbani said that if the Sindh government was abolished, or if efforts were set underway to transform it into a one-unit, there will be serious consequences.

"These are actions that hint that perhaps we are moving back towards a one-unit structure," he said.

Meanwhile, the Federal Information Minister Pervez Rasheed has said that the council had been formed as early as 20 days ago.

This man seems clueless about what he is speaking. Probably he has not come out of the mental shock of PPP's defeat after its worst-ever tenure of incompetence, nepotism, misgovernance and mega-corruption.

Some years back I used to think that Raza Rabbani may be the only sane/sensible guy in the whole of PPP but then I found out that he is just as hypocrite as the rest of his company.I mean he is only now waking up to the problems faced by the country,so was he in a coma the last 5 years or what?
