"How can we solve a puzzle when we are shown only one part of it," the Dawn quoted Iqbal as saying.
Expressing dissatisfaction over the in-camera briefing given by the military, the PML-N leader said that his party was interested in the government's policy and not in the performance or achievements of the armed forces in the troubled tribal areas. "A state institution does not represent the whole government," he added.
Iqbal was of the view that the government should first apprise parliament of its policy and priorities on the war-on-terror and then ask the military authorities to give "tactical briefing".
When asked if his party would take part in the debate in parliament on the issue of terrorism, he said the whole exercise of in-camera session would be useless unless the government came up with a clear-cut policy.
