The All Pakistan Oil Tankers Owners Association's (APOTOA) vice-president Shams Shahwani on Friday threatened Imran Khan that if the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government did not resume NATO supplies to Afghanistan within 72 hours, the Association would have no other option but to pursue legal action against him, Express News reported.

Shahwani said the ban on supplies was causing immense financial losses to oil tanker owners.

He said the Association was also mulling the idea of organising 'dharnas' (protests) in cities all over Pakistan, or cutting off fuel supplies to Khyber-Pukhtunkhwa in reaction.

The APOTOA official professed that those engaged in NATO supplies were open to the idea of pursuing alternative sources of income, but the government would have to arrange these for them.

Afghan Transit is functioning perfectly well and the average delay is at max 5-10 minutes. BTW the thousands of displaced tribesmen who are now refugees in their own country for years also have children

Sovereignty is the quality of having independent authority over a geographic area, such as a territory.

So how do drones violate Pakistan's sovereignty when they are usually used in places where Pakistan has little or no sovereignty.
