SUKKUR: The Pakistan’s leader of the opposition in the National Assembly, Khursheed Shah, has said government should make firm decisions against the terrorism; which would be supported by opposition for establishment of peace.
Khursheed Shah urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to become a leader of the nation and steer the country out of problems.
While talking to media at Sukkur on Friday, Syed Khursheed said that the federal government should disclose the features of the dialogue process with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).
Syed Khursheed Shah said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should take all parliamentarians into confidence if the federal government wants to hold peace talks or carry out a military operation against Taliban militants.
He urged Nawaz Sharif to become a leader of the nation and steer the country out of its problems.
The opposition leader urged the Prime Minister to make a quick decision on the Taliban issue. “We do not want political parties to score points on the issue”, he said.
He said that should take bold decisions, saying that the opposition wants that the people and the government should be on the same platform.
He said that it looks that the dialogues process with the Taliban is suspended at the present and the targeted operation is also in progress.
He said that PPP did not take political revenge and no one was put in jails while the PPP kept on performing its work in the past five years and faced the 18th amendment.
He said that PPP fought against the terrorists and increased the salaries of the employee, saying that it was all done because the PPP government kept open only the single door.
Khursheed shah further said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should also follow the same course of action and other doors should not be opened as the youths employed on contract and the daily wages are being sacked.
He said that he has also written letter to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to review the decision, saying that these are the children of the country they are on merit having the proper qualification and where they would go if sacked, saying that these youths would get astray in search of jobs.
He said that the government should clarify the policy against the terrorism and should make the decision, saying that the PPP would support the government in this regard.
