Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf chairman Imran Khan has said that dialogue with Taliban is the most important issue regarding current situation of the motherland. All parties are backing the government in this regard but it is not paying heed to this crucial issue.
While addressing a press conference in Lahore on Thursday, he warned that he would start direct dialogue with Taliban if the government doesn’t show any seriousness and sincerity in this matter.
He said that the US has proved by drone attacks that we is our worth and prestige in the sight of world community.
Throwing light on prime minister recently visit to America and UK, he said that Nawaz Sharif treated US president Barak Obama as his boss. Pakistan has come in the grip of calamites while the prime minister is busy in foreign tours.
He said that rulers are bound to beg for running the country as it has become impossible to run the system by hollow slogans which have diametrically failed to bring the country out of crises and challenges.
He made it clear that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has to face big loss with delay of dialogue with Taliban who are successively targeting innocent people for their vested interests.
He warned if the government takes no initiative in this regard, the PTI would start direct phase of dialogue with Taliban. PTI would also table a resolution in the KP Assembly regarding the supply to NATO forces in Afghanistan.
He warned that if drone attacks during dialogue with Taliban continue, his party would stop NATO supply without any pressure.
Commenting on socio-economic setup of the country, he said that more than 70 percent parliamentarians are defaulters of tax.
He suggested that the government should extend the circle of tax rather than imposing more taxes on the poor who are already bound to face the GST and other utility bills which are nothing but a ‘Jagga tax’.
He said that if the rulers are sincere with the country, they must have eradicated corruption tax-theft.
He suggested privatization of institutions is no solution to problems, it needs serious and sober steps for salvation of the masses who are real assets of the country; otherwise angry people would come to the streets and topple the government.
