SWABI: President Pakistan Peoples Party (Sherpao Group) Aftab Ahmed Khan has demanded of the Government to hold All Parties Conference for peaceful resolution of Malakand, Buner and Dir issues instead of use of force. Talking to the affectees of Bunar at a relief Camp on Sunday, he said it is the need of hour to resolve these issues peacefully.
Provincial President MPA Sikandar Hayat Khan Sherpao, Central Leader Senator Haji Ghafran Khan, District President Al-Haj Fazal Wadood Khan, General Secretary Syed Khal Bacha, Provincial Joint Secretary Masood Jabbar, Vice President Abdul Malak Khan, Haji Muhammad Fazal Khan, Abdul Karim Khan, Iftikhar Khan Zahida and others were also present on the occasion.
Besides giving fifty thousand cash to the affectees, he handed over a truck load of essential commodities to the District Administration which was distributed among two hundred families.
Aftab Ahmed Khan said that Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani took the decision in haste and ordered the operation in Malakand Division. He said the option was in favour of the government, but problems could not be solved through use of force.
He said it would be better to debate the issue at the Parliament before the operation. He said the Nazam-e-Adl regulation was enforced after the debate in the Parliament which could not be withdrawn. He urged the government to resolve the problem immediately and convene All Parties conference. He also expressed sympathies with the affectees. NNI
